Book of Mormon Discovery

This is probably my favorite discovery in the BoM this year.

In the last few verses of his writing, Moroni quotes from each of the farewell speeches of the small plate prophets, his own father, & Christ’s quotation of Isaiah 54.

Dr Grant Hardy calls it a “verbal curtain call.”

Since most of these references (any in 1 Nephi-Omni) were translated after Moroni, this is an incredible testament to the truthfulness of the BoM.

Joseph Smith would have to remember to use each quotation later in each farewell speech found in the small plates.

And after going through all that work making the BoM seem more authentic, Joseph never mentions it?
