Passage: 1 Nephi 2:98 - 1 Nephi 3:16

98 Wherefore, these plates are for the more part of the ministry, And the other plates are for the more part of the reigns of the kings and the wars and contentions of my people;
99 Wherefore, the Lord hath commanded me to make these plates for a wise purpose in Him, which purpose I know not,
100 But the Lord knoweth all things from the beginning;
101 Wherefore, He prepareth a way to accomplish all His works among the children of men, For behold, He hath all power unto the fulfilling of all His words;
102 And thus it is. Amen.

1 Nephi 3
1 And now I, Nephi, proceed to give an account upon these plates of my proceedings and my reign and ministry; Wherefore, to proceed with mine account I must speak somewhat of the things of my father, and also of my brethren.
2 For behold, it came to pass that after my father had made an end of speaking the words of his dream, and also of exhorting them to all diligence, He spake unto them concerning the Jews- How that after they were destroyed, yea, even that great City Jerusalem, and that many were carried away captive into Babylon, That according to the own due time of the Lord they should return again, yea, even be brought back out of captivity;
3 And after that they are brought back out of captivity to possess again their land of inheritance,
4 Yea, even six hundred years from the time that my father left Jerusalem, a Prophet would the Lord God raise up among the Jews, Yea, even a Messiah, or in other words, a Savior of the world.
5 And he also spake concerning the prophets- How great a number had testified of these things concerning this Messiah of which he had spoken, or this Redeemer of the world;
6 Wherefore, all mankind was in a lost and in a fallen state and ever would be, save they should rely on this Redeemer.
7 And he spake also concerning a prophet which should come before the Messiah to prepare the way of the Lord;
8 Yea, even he should go forth and cry in the wilderness: "Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make His paths straight,
9 For there standeth One among you whom ye know not; And He is mightier than I, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose."
10 And much spake my father concerning this thing;
11 And my father saith that he should baptize in Bethabara beyond Jordan, And he also spake that he should baptize with water, yea, even that he should baptize the Messiah with water;
12 And after that he had baptized the Messiah with water, he should behold and bear record that he had baptized the Lamb of God which should take away the sin of the world.
13 And it came to pass that after my father had spoken these words, he spake unto my brethren concerning the gospel which should be preached among the Jews,
14 And also concerning the dwindling of the Jews in unbelief;
15 And after that they had slain the Messiah which should come, And after that He had been slain, He should rise from the dead and should make Himself manifest by the Holy Ghost unto the Gentiles.
16 Yea, even my father spake much concerning the Gentiles, and also concerning the house of Israel- That they should be compared like unto an olive tree whose branches should be broken off and should be scattered upon all the face of the earth;
