Val Larsen and I think a lot alike. I could talk to Val about the Book of Mormon and the Old Testament for hours. This is just one of those hours.
We discuss the two religions of Lehi's Jerusalem and Lehi and Nephi. And the insights on Lehi's Dream are important and poignant. We show that Laman and Lemuel were religious, just to another religion. The disastrous, centralizing reforms of King Josiah.
Val discusses how the Tree of Life may have been an almond tree shaped like a menorah in Gethsemane on the Mt. of Olives, there since the time of King Solomon. Listen to this episode, and you'll get some real meat.
