What I liked in 1 Ne 12

1 Ne 12 continues with Nephi's vision/experience from yesterday's reading (1 Ne 11). Some of the things that stood out to me were; vv 1-15, 19-23 — a preview of the proceedings of Nephi's descendents; and the exigetical interlude in vv 16-18 where the angel refers back to Lehi's vision to explain how Nephi's vision fit into it.

What I liked in 1 Ne 11

It's been while since any of us have blogged, so I'm stuck playing catch-up. I really don't want to break the one post per chapter model though, wo hopefully this means a bunch of posts of the next several days.

I'll start with 1 Ne 11. For a long time, I've seen this as sort of a 'temple experience' that Nephi had. He's taught about the Savior in a vision that includes: the tree of life; the birth, baptism, ministry, and crucifiction of the Lord; and the calling and ministry of the twelve apostles.
