The Term “Red Sea” in II Nephi 19:1
I sometimes wonder how I would translate certain things in the Book of Mormon, if we were ever to create a Hebrew version of that book. And as I was reading the Book of Mormon recently and got to II Nephi 19:1 I noticed that verse referred to the Red Sea. The context is that of events in northern Israel (the regions of Naphtali and Zebulun), so the reference to the Red Sea simply does not fit.

Wilson D.O., PhD shows how the Book of Mormon agrees with the Isaiah that is preserved in the Qumran Great Isaiah Scroll.

That must be emphasized, because both of these processes provide the opportunity for the original message to be distorted, or even completely deleted. For that reason, we need to discuss both of those processes in some detail.
