Nahom - Book of Mormon Evidence

In 1994 the discovery of Nahom burrial ground in Southern Arabia became one of the most significant evidences of the truth of the Book of Mormon. This is where Lehi and Ishmael's family burried Ishmael after he passed away on their journey to the promised land. As this video shows it is interesting because Nephi's text specifically lets us know that this was the name of the land before Lehi's party ever journied through this land. This is significant because Lehi named many of the places his party stopped at but this was one of the rare places he didn't name and the reason why is because it already had a name. There is no way that Joseph Smith jr. could have known this upon translating the Book of Mormon because it wasn't discovered until 1994. I hope you enjoy this video it is part of a DVD called Journey of Faith put out by the Neal A. Maxwell Institiute which is just amazing. Enjoy
