Where are the Three Nephites?
Posted by skiutah on Wednesday, March 26, 2008
What happened to the three Nephites? Do the LDS church leaders still talk about them? Or in an attempt to become a more mainstream religion, have the three Nephites slowly disappeared from Mormon folklore?
The prophet Spencer W. Kimball talked about the three Nephites in a 1960 October Conference Report: “The Indians have legends which might be reminiscent of the three Nephites… They are beginning to recognize the similarity between their distorted tradition stories and the truth…”
Too bad the three Nephites are not related to the Indians though (at least not through DNA).
Why don’t we hear more about these legendary 2000+ year old guys, bringing Jesus to all nations, tongues, and people?
Latest update: Have Provo, Utah police unknowningly arrested one of the three Nephites? Here’s the news article: One of 3 Nephites Arrested by Provo Police
He’s old, he’s not in any US government databases, well spoken, educated, and polite. This really could be one of the three Nephites.
