Book of Mormon culture in this period appears to have far transcended
the Law of Moses. As we can see from the context of the story in Alma
1, the rules of Nephite society during that period were much more
liberal than in the most strict legalistic Jewish culture. In fact
conditions seemed to more closely parallel those in the early Christian
The apostle Paul wrote about the Jews, ..."the law was a schoolmaster to
bring us unto Christ." Apparently the Law of Moses had a different
effect on Nephite society than it seems to have had on the Jews during
the same period.
