For the quotes used in this podcast, see Alma 32-35 Great Quotes. For an excellent review of the Greek notion of faith or pistis (πίστις), I highly recommend this video of Brent Schmidt’s presentation at BYU in 2019. You can access a copy of Karel Van der Toorn’s book Scribal Culture and the Hebrew Bible here. For an introduction to the Documentary Hypothesis, go here. For a brief overview of the four main strands of the Hebrew Bible, see Stories Told Twice in the Bible. On the Brass Plates being an “E Source” document, go here. To understand more about the editing of the Hebrew Bible at the time of Lehi and Nephi’s stewardship and how both of these prophets reacted to these changes, see our podcast on 1 Nephi 1-7, from 7:00- 29:00.
