The Bible's entire Purpose is to show follow the covenant family throughout history. Everyone from Adam and Eve down on were part of this covenant family. When a righteous family (Direct decendents of Joseph) escaped the downfall of Jerusalem almost 80 years in advance (about 600BC) thanks to the prophetic vision of the families patriarch Lehi. They were led by the same god that led Moses out of egypt. They passed through the wilderness, constructed a boat by God's command, and made it to what we call today America. The family split into two groups, the Lamenites and the Nephites. The Book of Mormon follows the lineage of Joseph on the Americas all the way through the time of christ. It may sound like fan fiction for the bible, but It was a true document of the people in America discovered in New York around 1820. It was prophesied by Ancient Prophets on more than one occasion, and the principles and doctrines taught are in perfect Harmony with the Bible. Ezekiel 37: 16-17 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
