1 Nephi 6

1 Nephi 6: Nephi writes about God

                Nephi explains that his purpose for writing the record of his people is to; “…persuade men to come unto the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and be saved.” (1 Nephi 6:4)

Nephi explains that he does not have room to write out their entire genealogy, except that; “…it sufficeth me to say that we are descendants of Joseph.” (1 Nephi :2)

Instead, Nephi desires to bring people unto the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He makes it clear that the things he will write about his people in the record will not be; “…pleasing unto the world…” (1 Nephi 6:5) However, he WILL WRITE those things which are; “…pleasing unto God…” (1 Nephi 6:5)
