The second video in the Book of Mormon series was released. Watch it here

The second episode in the Book of Mormon video series was released to the public on Friday, Sept. 27.

This video, based on 1 Nephi 3-5, follows Nephi and his brothers as they return to Jerusalem to obtain the plates of brass from a wicked leader named Laban. Despite two unsuccessful attempts and being beaten by Laman and Lemuel, Nephi remains faithful and is able to secure the plates for his family by following the Spirit.
