An Introduction to the Book of Mormon, Part 7. Robert M. And it came to pass that I beheld that the wrath of God was poured out upon that great and abominable church , insomuch that there were wars and rumors of wars among all the nations and kindreds of the earth.
And when the day cometh that the wrath of God is poured out upon the mother of harlots , which is t he great and abominable church of all the earth, whose founder is the devil, then, at that day, the work of the Father shall commence, in preparing the way for the fulfilling of his covenants, which he hath made to his people who are of the house of Israel. And the blood of that great and abominable church , which is the whore of all [p.
And every nation which shall war against thee, O house of Israel, shall be turned one against another, and they shall fall into the pit which they digged to ensnare the people of the Lord. And all that fight against Zion shall be destroyed, and that great whore , who hath perverted the right ways of the Lord, yea, that great and abominable church , shall tumble to the dust and great shall be the fall of it. And blessed are the Gentiles, they of whom the prophet has written; for behold, if it so be that they shall repent and fight not against Zion, and do not unite themselves to that great and abominable church , they shall be saved; for the Lord God will fulfill his covenants which he has made unto his children; and for this cause the prophet has written things.
Wherefore, he that fighteth against Zion, both Jew and Gentile, both bond and free, both male and female, shall perish; for they are they who are the whore of all the earth ; for they who are not for me are against me, saith our God. But behold, that great and abominable church, the whore of all the earth , must tumble to the earth, and great must be the fall thereof. And the great and abominable church , which is the whore of all the earth , shall be cast down by devouring fire, according as it is spoken by the mouth of Ezekiel the prophet, who spoke of these things, which have not come to pass but surely must, as I live, for abominations shall not reign.
And another angel shall sound his trump, saying: That great church, the mother of abominations , that made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication , that persecuteth the saints of God, that shed their blood— she who sitteth upon many waters , and upon the islands of the sea—behold, she is the tares of the earth; she is bound in bundles; her bands are made strong, no man can loose them; therefore, she is ready to be burned.

Edited by Bruce A. These included Solon, the great lawgiver-poet of Athens, Thales of Miletus, and other great religious founders such as Buddha, Confucius, Lao-tzu, and Zarathustra. An Approach, pp. Lehi found himself right at home in this innovative crowd of great dreamers and doers. Nibley showed that Lehi was a representative man in terms of his political and economic dealings. See An Approach, pp. Nibley also explored broad patterns of ancient religious practices, showing how they relate with considerable insight to particular texts in the Book of Mormon.
The same pattern is seen in the histories of the Jewish desert sectaries, the Rechabites, and the Dead Sea community at Qumran. Even the followers of John the Baptist, the children of Israel in the Sinai, and the Latter-day pioneers fled into the wilderness and followed an identifiable pattern of life and beliefs. The ancient Near Eastern year rite festival was an annual event at which the king called his people together, gave an accounting of his actions, placed the people again under obligation to abide by the law, prophesied, acclaimed all men equals, proclaimed them the children of God, and recorded their names in the registry of life.
Such elements of the typical ancient year rite are readily discernible in several Book of Mormon assemblies, particularly that of King Benjamin in chapters 2 through 6 of the book of Mosiah. The King who ordered the rites was steeped in the lore of the Old World king-cult, and as he takes up each aspect of the rites of the Great Assembly point by point he gives it a new slant, a genuinely religious interpretation, but with all due respect to established forms.
One by one the thirty-odd details … have been brought to light and … [are] now attested in every country of the ancient world. There is no better description of the event in any single ritual text than is found in the Book of Mosiah. See An Approach, p.
The other two tales were collected in the tenth century A. This is an acid test that no forgery could pass; it not only opens a window on a world we dreamed not of, but it brings to our unsuspecting and uninitiated minds a first glimmering suspicion of the true scope and vastness of a book nobody knows. Powerful, jolting ideas like these become commonplace in the pages of An Approach to the Book of Mormon.
Clearly, to generate all this from scratch was the task of no common man. Hugh Nibley was ideally suited and prepared to see these wide-ranging connections and implications. His training spanned the worlds of Greece, Rome, Arabia, and beyond. His keen sense of contrast bridged the worlds of the East and the West.
An Approach To The Book Of Mormon Collected Works Hugh Nibley Volume 6
And his eclectic and omnivorous consumption of knowledge was coupled with a nearly flawless recall of virtually anything he had ever learned. These tools of a scholar gave him the ability to see the Book of Mormon against a background so vast that no one before had ever even surveyed it.
Of his accumulation of knowledge, the story is true that in doing his doctoral research he pulled every potentially relevant book in the UCLA library off the shelf to see what bearing it might have on his work. In , the third of his major volumes on the Book of Mormon appeared. Since Cumorah is a mixed assortment of studies developing themes which were present with Nibley from the beginning: 1 his disdain for the so-called scientists or scholars whose dogmatism or authoritarianism preclude them from taking the Book of Mormon seriously; 2 his view of the Book of Mormon as an accurate reflection of the religious worlds which produced the books of the Bible, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Apocrypha; 3 his quest for words, phrases, poetry, or narratives which particularly elucidate our understanding of the words of the Nephite prophets; 4 his rejection of charges that things mentioned in the Book of Mormon are anachronistic; 5 his urgent belief that the book speaks to our day, and that we will be condemned to repeat the true-to-life errors of the Nephites if we do not take the message of this sacred record seriously and repent.
Many of the specific topics treated in Since Cumorah either already were or soon became the subject of individual articles. See also Improvement Era, Feb. See also Ensign, July , p. See footnote 2. In several other articles, Brother Nibley likewise continued his quest for greater refinement and further elaboration of particular points. Learning is cumulative. All we have to show for our existence is our awareness.
Parallels are just that. What, then, can one say to summarize the contribution of Hugh Nibley to Book of Mormon scholarship?
