Book of Mormon, Books, 2 Nephi, Book of Mormon Books, Isaiah, Jesus Christ, Prophecies of Jesus Christ, D&C, Doctrine and Covenants
Nephi quotes from the book of Isaiah because of its relevance to his people and to all men. He highlights the message of Christ’s appearance and atonement. The latter-day prophecies, both those which have been fulfilled and those that are yet to be fulfilled, are cited and explained. Israel will be restored in the latter days, but warnings accompany this glorious prophecy. The enemies of Zion will be confounded.
