Nahom

“And it came to pass that Ishmael died, and was buried in the place which was called Nahom." 

Book of Mormon, 1 Nephi 16:34

 

Analyzing Nahom

I have made several Tik Tok videos concerning Nahom, that I have since transferred to YouTube so that I could link them below.

Part 1

In this video I go over the history and evidence for Nahom as a Book of Mormon site. 

Part 2

Google Earth is a great way to view the terrain of the proposed Book of Mormon site, Nahom. 

Part 3

Putting the location of Nahom into perspective.

Part 4

In response to a fellow creator, in this video I am further demonstrating how Nahom is not actually good evidence for a Book of Mormon site. 

Part 5

Turns out Joseph Smith knew a guy named Nahem Knight. 

Maps that include 
Nahom

One argument that could be used against the authenticity of the place Nahom of the Book of Mormon, is that Joseph Smith could have simply picked it randomly from a map. Did this name appear on any maps of his day? Turns out, the answer is yes!

In my research, I looked at seventeen different maps all dating before 1828 before the Book of Mormon was published. I found that seven of these maps bore the name (in some form or other) "Nahom" while ten of the maps did not.
