Screenshot of the latest video from Evidence Central on the Book of Mormon's Mulek.
The Book of Mormon states that King Zedekiah had a son named Mulek who, unlike his brothers, avoided execution when Babylon conquered Jerusalem in 587 BC. On its face, this claim may seem rather doubtful, and perhaps even unbelievable. After all, the King James Bible doesn’t say anything about Mulek, and some people question whether many biblical figures ever really existed. But not all is as it...

Screenshot from Evidence Central's newest video on the archaeological evidence for cement in ancient America.
Could ancient Americans really have known how to make cement? The Book of Mormon says yes. As recorded in Helaman 3:7, the people in the land northward “became exceedingly expert in the working of cement.” They built houses and even cities of the stuff. Yet only in recent decades have scholars widely recognized that pre-Columbian peoples actually knew about this invaluable building material...
John Hilton III explaining the Book of Mormon in five minutes.
In the October 1988 general conference, President Ezra Taft Benson declared, “I have a vision of flooding the earth with the Book of Mormon.” He said, “The time is long overdue for a massive flooding of the earth with the Book of Mormon,” and stressed the need to take advantage of “the electronic media and the mass distributions of the printed word” that was available at that time. As...

I’ll be honest, when I received my endowment, I didn’t have the greatest experience. I hadn’t taken a temple preparation class, and I had heard some misinformation about the temple that made me nervous. In short, I probably wasn’t ready to attend the temple. Fortunately, my parents encouraged me to go back, and after a few more visits to the temple I loved it, and felt its spiritual power. But...

Parable of the Sower
In what is probably one of Alma’s most oft-repeated sermons, he compares the word to a seed and encourages us to plant it in our hearts (see Alma 32:28). About a century later, Jesus Christ would use this same comparison when he gives what is commonly known as the Parable of the Sower (see Matthew 13:1-9). He tells of a sower who casts the seeds on four types of soils. Only the seeds sown on the...
