Neum

Neum was a Hebrew prophet cited by Nephi in connection with the coming Atonement of the Savior. “And the God of our fathers, who were led out of Egypt, out of bondage, and also were preserved in the wilderness by him, yea, the God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, yieldeth himself, according to the words of the angel,... to be crucified, according to the words of Neum”. Presumably, Nephi found the reference to Neum (and other prophets such as Zenock and Zenos) in the plates of brass, indicating that all of them predated the exodus of Lehi and his family from Jerusalem in 600 BC. Nephi’s reference to Neum is the only time this prophet is mentioned in the scriptures.
