    Inside back cover: Lehi’s Family Leaving Jerusalem, by Scott Snow. Nephi, depicted here in the foreground, records that the people of Jerusalem wanted to kill his father, Lehi, because he testified of their wickedness. “The Lord commanded my father … that he should take his family and depart into the wilderness. And he did travel in the wilderness with his family, which consisted of my mother, Sariah, and my elder brothers, who were Laman, Lemuel, and Sam” (see 1 Ne. 1:19–20; 1 Ne. 2:2–5).
