Why Zarahemla?


Zarahemla is where you'll find the people and prophets of the Book of Mormon and learn their ways.

Maybe Zarahemla looked something like this. It was the center of government, religion, and culture. The Book of Mormon is the translation of the religious history of two ancient civilizations. Zarahemla is the meeting place of these two peoples. At Zarahemla they struggle to become a united people. At Zarahemla we see prophets of God meeting the challenges of apostasy, political unrest, and prosperity. There we will learn about their language, their literary forms, and the influence of their Hebrew heritage. Yes! These civilizations were Hebrew and the intellectual and religious influence of that culture permeate their history and its record.
