CLAIM THREE
     
  In addition to claiming two major migrations, My writings also state that the Nephites brought from the old continent certain records known as the “Brass Plates of Laban” (the Old Testament writings up t, but not including, the capture of Jerusalem by the Babylonians ).  
     
  My account states that the Lord commanded Nephi and his brothers to obtain the Brass Plates from a wicked and corrupt leader in Jerusalem named Laban. Laban refused to give them the ancient Brass Plates, stole their property, and attempted to kill them. As a result of Laban ‛s wickedness, the Lord commanded Nephi to slay him and take the Plates ( see 1st Nephi 3-4 ).  
     
 

Behold the Lord
slayeth the wicked
to bring forth His
righteous purposes . .

1st Nephi 4:13

 
  But I have never shed
the blood of man !
 
     
These records must have been very vital, for the Lord to say :
“ . . . It is better that one man should perish than that a nation should dwindle in unbelief.”
( 1st Nephi 4:13 )
