Prospering in the Land: A Comparison of Covenant Promises in Leviticus and First Nephi 2

Keywords

Covenant Promises, Leviticus, First Nephi, Nephi

Abstract

A careful examination of the Abrahamic covenant, as contained in Leviticus 26, and the covenant established with the Lehites during their exodus to the New World, found in 1 Nephi 2, shows deliberate similarities. These similarities are important to understand, as the role of covenant is central in both ancient Israelite practice and current Latter-day Saint theology.
