(4) The fourth error is the idea that coming back into the presence of God (overcoming spiritual death) is conditional upon how we live. The name Jacob is explained as "supplanter" in the King James Bible of Genesis 27:36 (compare Genesis 25:23-26), but could just as easily be read "successor" or "replacement," since Jacob replaced Esau as firstborn and received the birthright and the blessing (see Genesis 25:29-34; 27:22-40). It is not clear from our present Old Testament record what Lehi might have been reading. Note the use of the disjunctives "neither" and "nor" in 2 Nephi 2:11: If not so, my first-born in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass, Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life, [Donald W. Parry, The Book of Mormon Text Reformatted according to Parallelistic Patterns, F.A.R.M.S., pp. Once a person reaches the age of accountability and sins, unless something happens to change him, when he is brought back into God's presence at the judgment, he will not be allowed to stay. 2 Nephi 2:1 [Jacob] Thou Art My First-born in the Days of My Tribulation in the Wilderness: According to John Tvedtnes, Lehi apparently named his sons Jacob and Joseph after their distant ancestors Jacob and Joseph. .


. Lehi's next statement is that the Holy Messiah offers himself as "a sacrifice for sin, to answer the ends of the law" (2 Nephi 2:7).

implies that Lehi may have considered Jacob to be a replacement for these sons. [John W. Welch, "The Temple in the Book of Mormon," in. So opposition is necessary to man's progression, but God could not create it. , and today scholars refer to such inverted quotations of earlier sources as an example of Seidel's law. Later, Quetzalcoatl was defeated and killed in battle by Tezcatlipoca. So why the Fall? . In a sermon to his son Jacob, Lehi also reversed the elements of creation: "And to bring about his eternal purposes in the end of man, after he had created our first parents, and the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and in fine, all things which are created, it must needs be there was an opposition" (2 Nephi 2:15). This argument falls utterly flat. According to Lund, Lehi first outlines 5 important points that must be understood before he can discuss the Fall and the redemption of man.
[Gerald N. Lund, "The Fall of Man and His Redemption," in The Book of Mormon: Second Nephi, The Doctrinal Structure, p. 98], 2 Nephi 2:4 The way is prepared from the fall of man (Illustration #2): Lehi's Chain of Reasoning. For example, in one account, Eve says: "And at that very moment my eyes were opened and I knew that I was naked of the righteousness with which I had been clothed. This suffering redeems the soul from hell, but this gift is. But more to the point, Jacob states that the Lord has spoken of these things "by the mouth of his holy prophets, even from the beginning down" (2 Nephi 9:2). 649-654] [See the commentary on "skin of blackness" in 2 Nephi 5:21; see also the commentary on Rechabites in 1 Nephi 2:5], 2 Nephi 2:25 Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy (Illustration): Adam and Eve Kneeling at an Altar. . . 2 Nephi 2:3 Thy Days Shall Be Spent in the Service of Thy God: According to John Welch, when Lehi dedicated his son Jacob to spend all his days "in the service of thy God" (2 Nephi 2:3), it seems likely that he was prophesying of Jacob's consecration as a priest (see 2 Nephi 5:26) and of his future temple service, for the Hebrew words for service (avodah, sharat) often appear in phrases such as "the service of the tabernacle" (Exodus 30:16), "service in the holy place" (Exodus 39:1), and the "work of the service of the house of God" (1 Chronicles 9:13).

Bentley, 1000 Evidences for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: Part Two-A Voice from the Dust: 500 Evidences in Support of the Book of Mormon, p. 40]. Similarly, after the death of Lehi, Laman and Lemuel sought the life of their brother Nephi [and possibly the life of Jacob and Joseph]. 100-101].

. 2 Nephi 2:15 After He Had Created Our First Parents, and the Beasts of the Field and the Fowls of the Air: According to David Bokovoy, when the Book of Mormon appeared in 1830, the Western world had only a limited knowledge of the literary techniques utilized by Semitic authors. Lehi witnesses that he has "chosen the good part" (v. 30). Lehi's point is that if Christ were not full of this grace or "enabling power," he could not possibly redeem man. . In Thy Childhood Thou (Jacob) Has Suffered Afflictions and Much Sorrow, Because of the Rudeness of Thy Brethren: When Lehi blessed Jacob, he mentioned that, "in thy childhood thou [Jacob] hast suffered afflictions and much sorrow, because of the rudeness of thy brethren" (2 Nephi 2:1). . .
