“Up to & Down from” Jerusalem - Further Indicators of a Real-World Origin

In February this year Warren Aston published an article with Meridian Magazine entitled "Up to & Down from" Jerusalem - Further Indicators of a Real-World Origin. You can link to the full-text article here. This article draws our attention to the "hidden jewels" in the Book of Mormon--tiny pieces of information that escape our notice if we aren't looking closely. Warren's textual analysis of Nephi's account as he journeys to and from Jerusalem is insightful; it shows how the details contained in 1st Nephi could only have been written by someone with an intimate knowledge of the city and surrounding landscape. We highly recommend reviewing this article before visiting Israel.
