  • Mormon₂ wrote of “the light of Christ” (Mormon 7:15–19) and Joseph Smith revealed more about about the light of Christ in D&C 88:5–13. C. Kent Dunford explains what we know about this power that emanates from God: “Light of Christ,” in Encyclopedia of Mormonism, volume 2, ed. Daniel H. Ludlow (New York: Macmillan, 1992), 835.

  • Moroni chapter 8 is Mormon₂’s epistle on the salvation of little children. For more on this doctrine, see Robert L. Millet, “Alive in Christ: the Salvation of Little Children,” in Fourth Nephi, From Zion to Destruction, eds. Monte S. Nyman and Charles D. Tate Jr. (Provo, Utah: Religious Studies Center at Brigham Young University, 1995), 1–17.

  • Latter-day Saint scholar Royal Skousen believes, based on internal evidence, that the term “pleasing bar” in Moroni 10:34 and Jacob 6:13 should read “pleading bar,” a legal term referring to the bar in a court of law before which a defendant pleads his or her case. See Skousen, “The Pleading Bar of God,” Interpreter: A Journal of Latter-day Saint Faith and Scholarship 42 (2021): 21–36.
