Comparison of the Second Book of Nephi to the Bible

Available now is my computed comparison of the Second Book of Nephi to the Bible, consisting of 157 pages of side-by-side text comparisons. This is part of the second edition of As One that Hath a Familiar Spirit, which I’m publishing here on my blog. Subsequently, pending sufficient interest, I may also work toward publishing more formal print or ebook copies of the entire work. If you would be interested in purchasing a print or ebook copy, please let me know by clicking here.

Here are some highlights from and observations about the computed comparison of the Second Book of Nephi to the Bible:

  1. 2 Nephi 2: 11 introduces necessary “opposition” as Matthew 18: 17 introduces necessary “offences”
  2. 2 Nephi 4: 17 exclaims “o wretched man that I am” as does Romans 7: 24
  3. 2 Nephi 6: 6-7, 16-18 closely matches Isaiah 49: 22-26 with an interjection about “Mighty God”
  4. 2 Nephi 7-8 closely matches Isaiah 50-51 and the first two verses of Isaiah 52
  5. 2 Nephi 9: 50-51 closely matches Isaiah 55: 1-2 with an extended interjection
  6. 2 Nephi 12-24 closely matches Isaiah 2-14 with differences that are more interesting than similarities
  7. 2 Nephi 25: 20 references Jesus Christ using “there is none other name given under heaven” like Acts 4: 12
  8. 2 Nephi 27: 2-5, 15, 17, 25-35 closely matches Isaiah 29: 6-24
  9. 2 Nephi 30: 9, 11-15 closely matches Isaiah 11: 4-9 with 2 Nephi 30: 10 interjected
  10. 2 Nephi 33 expresses Nephi’s words like John 19: 22 expresses Pilate’s words
