Abinadi’s Execution and Aftermath
Recolonization of the Land of Nephi
Three days later, Noah charges him with blasphemy, and threatens to sentence him to death unless he takes back what he said.
Abinadi refuses to compromise, and again warns of the impending wrath of God.
Noah, worried about what Abinadi is saying, considers releasing him, but the priests convince him otherwise.
Abinadi is burned at the stake, and utters a final warning of vengeance.
Noah authorizes a covert operation to gather intelligence on Alma and those that might have followed him.
Noah assumes Alma is planning an insurrection by the waters of Mormon, and orders his army to attack him.
The army fails to find Alma’s group, who had apparently already deserted the waters of Mormon.
In response to Noah’s actions, he loses the support of many of his subjects.
One disaffected man, Gideon, plots to kill Noah.
Gideon engages Noah in battle.
Noah, knowing he is no match for Gideon, runs up to a tower near the temple, with Gideon on his heels.
