Welcome to the 1990 Independence Edition of the Book of Mormon followed by Commentary. The views expressed in this podcast are those of the podcaster and don’t necessarily reflect the beliefs of the Church of Christ.


Book of Enos
Jul 5 • 30 min
Wrestling with God. What is the secret to a remission of our sins? How is it done? This small book is like a testimony from Enos to the church on any given Wednesday night prayer service. The lesson that is to be learned is to have faith in Christ.…
Book of Jacob Chapters 4 and 5
Jul 4 • 38 min
The last words of Jacob are recorded in chapter 4, complete with an Amen. Then we have another chapter that was added. Remember we are writing on metal plates here. We can’t just press delete or backspace so instead we get a denouement. The encounter with…
Book of Jacob Chapter 3
Jun 28 • 79 min
Who was Xenos? I am not sure, but I love his prophecy as related by Jacob. Grab your crayons and a blank sheet of paper and get ready to visualize each step of the prophecy. It is a lot of coloring and it might be hard to understand at times, but if you…
Book of Jacob Ch. 1 and 2
Jun 11 • 48 min
With a topic that thematically relates to Christian Tactician, I take my turn at diagnosing the duties and responsibilities of a man. The responsibility of the ministry to be “watchmen” is the same responsibility that husbands have over their families,…
2nd Nephi Chapters 13-15
Jun 8 • 55 min
The topics of this podcast include baptism 600 years before Christ, endure to the end, and then Nephi ends his portion of the Book of Mormon “throwin’ shade” on all the bad guys with a mic drop and a bat flip. What an incredible life and a gauntlet thrown…
2nd Nephi Ch. 12
Jun 8 • 54 min
Modern day churches, Epicurean Ideals, and Theology are discussed at the beginning of Chapter 12. “Is it okay if I attend another church since I am a scattered member?” We are judged by our works. We aren’t supposed to judge another man’s works. Our works…
2nd Nephi Chapter 11
May 31 • 63 min
Isaiah is confusing. If you don’t believe me then listen to Nephi, he said as much. As confusing as Isaiah is there is a promise and a hope associated with his words and there is a reason God had them recorded for us. In the last days, when it is wisdom…
2nd Nephi Chapters 9-10
May 3 • 56 min
Nephi continues to quote Isaiah. I have only selected a few verses from each chapter and I am reluctant to expound on the meaning of these prophecies. I highlight a few verses here and there that are more notable and recognizable to everybody. “Here am I;…
2nd Nephi Chapter 8
Apr 19 • 35 min
The first of three chapters that quote Isaiah. I highlight a bumper sticker verse, a word that is missing from the book of Isaiah and reference the fact that Nephi plainly states that the law of Moses typifies Christ. Nephi states that these words of…
2nd Nephi chapter 6-7
Apr 12 • 42 min
Jacob preaches a great sermon and Nephi decides to add it to his book. Several statements of Jacob are found to be “words in red”. The subject of Jacob’s sermon is death and hell, and the resurrection and eternal life. If you have ever wondered, “What…
2nd Nephi Ch 4-5
Apr 12 • 52 min
Nephi had sisters? They get four words in chapter 4. Beginning of the Nephite/Lamanite separation. Chapter 5 begins long quotes of Isaiah chapters 49-52ish with a few words that were missing from the Bible that add volumes of prophetic understanding. This…
2nd Nephi Ch 2-3
Mar 15 • 43 min
The “Little Joseph” and the “Oh Wretched Man That I Am” chapters. Two chapters that are remembered for their powerful prophecies and gritty content. We read Lehi’s last words to his family and his little Joseph. Chapter three is hard to read out loud…
2nd Nephi Chapter 1
Mar 7 • 52 min
Lehi’s last words to his sons. The opposition in all things is discussed as well as man’s free will and opportunity to have joy. Bible references interspersed add great cross references to your studies and clearer understanding of the topics. At the time…
1st Nephi chapters 6 & 7
Mar 1 • 44 min
Chapter 6 is Isaiah 48-49, Chapter 7 is Nephi explaining Isaiah to his brothers (and us). Many great verses to highlight in chapter 7. Basically, disregard everything you’ve read about how scary the Book of Revalation is because Nephi tells us not to…
1st Nephi chapter 5
Feb 21 • 59 min
The namesake, Chapter 5 verse 122, Laman and Lemuel get shocked with lightning by Nephi superhero style, listening to and feeling the still small voice, and other highlightable (is that a word?) verses from chapter 5. —- Send in a voice message:…
1st Nephi chapter 4
Feb 17 • 23 min
A short chapter with few comments that are aimed more at individual verses for study; as opposed to a reflection on the chapter, which flows through a concise and easy to understand narrative requiring little interjection. —- Send in a voice message:…
1st Nephi chapter 3
Feb 15 • 66 min
Whew! A long chapter which includes many highlighted verses. My comments include references to a few Bible verses and the definition of the word “diligently”. —- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/dan-malone/message
1st Nephi chapter 2
Feb 8 • 32 min
Why were there two different plates of Nephi? A large and small? You can decide for yourself. My comments include a reference from our outline history regarding the lost 116 pages. —- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/dan-malone/message
