“How have the sacred teachings of the [brass] plates gone forth unto all nations? (1 Nephi 5:18, Alma 37:3-5)

“Obviously, they have not. Whatever teachings have gone forth it is due not to the preservation or going forth of the brass plates, but by means of the Bible and the few passages from Zenos, Zenock, Neum and Joseph which are briefly summarized in the Book of Mormon and which do not amount to more than a few sentences with prophecies no different from others by later Nephite prophets.”
