article description
S. Kent Brown compares the exodus events that occur in the Book of Mormon to the exodus of the Israelites out of Egypt. He compares the Nephite bondage to the exodus as well, suggesting that the Book of Mormon figure Alma the Elder is a type of Moses. He links the exodus typologically to the effects of Jesus' atonement. Finally, he cites the exodus a proof of the power of God and his ability to fulfill his promises.
