Part 5: Alma 9 – Alma 25
The introduction to this series on internal consistency in the Book of Mormon is found in part 1 here.
This part covers Alma and Amulek in Ammonihah and a flashback to the mission of the sons of Mosiah. As usual there are many examples within these chapters of subtle details that are referenced elsewhere and therefore demonstrate the careful detail that went into producing the text.
29. Alma 9:18, 10:22-23 and Alma 16:2-3 — the destruction of Ammonihah
Alma prophecies of the destruction of Ammonihah while preaching there, first in Alma 9:18
But behold, I say unto you that if ye persist in your wickedness that your days shall not be prolonged in the land, for the Lamanites shall be sent upon you; and if ye repent not they shall come in a time when you know not, and ye shall be visited with utter destruction; and it shall be according to the fierce anger of the Lord.
