The Book of Mormon Verified by Other Ancient Writings Part 1

(Interesting Points Of The Timeline Parallels) (This Is NOT My Personal Thoughts, But I Fully Believe The Following Points).

Some of you are familiar with the timeline parallels I pointed out between the Nephites and modern times. The original inspiration came from Anthony Larson's book "Parallel Histories: The Nephites and the Americans".

I also thought of Pres. Benson's words that the Book of Mormon account just prior to Christ's crucifixion parallels our day in many ways. Said he: "The record of the Nephite history just prior to the Savior’s visit [to the Americas] reveals many parallels to our own day as we anticipate the Savior’s Second Coming.”(Ezra Taft Benson, A Witness and a Warning: A Modern-day Prophet Testifies of the Book of Mormon (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 198, 37 (see also 20–21).)

I won't go into all the parallels again in this post, but as a summary:
147BC - Church "restored" = 1830 AD in our day.

3 Nephi 5, then…
