Book of Mormon Prophets

List of Prophets from the Book of Mormon

By

Just as God called prophets during Old Testament and New Testament times, He also called prophets to teach the people on the American Continent. A history of these prophets, the people, and even a personal visit from Jesus Christ is recorded in The Book of Mormon.

The Book of Mormon teaches about three groups of people, Nephites, Lamanites, and Jaredites. This list of known Book of Mormon prophets is divided into these groups.
