Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Nephi. Nephi was the first, Lehi the second. It seems logically that it would be the other way around. See Helaman Chapter 3, Verse 37.
|Who prevented the death of the new chief judge (i.e. the one who came after Pacumeni)? Look near the beginning of Chapter 2.||Helaman Chapters 1-3
the servant of Helaman. It never gives the servant's name. See Helaman Chapter 2, Verses 6-9.
|Who attempted to kill the new chief judge (i.e. the chief judge who came after Pacumeni)?||Helaman Chapters 1-3
Kishkumen. Kishkumen DID kill Pahoran II, and was one of the founders of the Gadianton robbers. See Helaman Chapter 2, Verse 7.
|Who became the chief judge over the Nephites once peace was restored with the Lamanites(i.e. who came after Pacumeni)?||Helaman Chapters 1-3
Helaman II. Helaman I was Helaman II's father. Helaman I was the one who led the 2000 stripling warriors from the book of Alma. See Helaman Chapter 2, Verse 2.
|What happened to the Lamanite prisoners of war acquired through Coriantumr's defeat? The answer is in Helaman, Chapter 1.||Helaman Chapters 1-3
They left in peace. The Lamanites were surrounded by the Nephites and Corianumr and many other Lamanites were killed. The Lamanites surrendered, and thus became prisoners of war. Moronihah let them go in peace. See Helaman Chapter 1, Verse 33.
Moronihah (Captain Moroni's son). Captain Moroni and Helaman had led Nephite armies before this point in time. Moroni (i.e. the last author of the Book of Mormon) lived many years after this time period. See Helaman Chapter 1, Verses 25, 26, 28, 30, 33.
Coriantumr. Coriantumr, who was the leader of the lamanite armies, threw him against a wall. See Helaman Chapter 1, Verse 21.
Kishkumen. Coriantumr was the leader of the Lamanite army, and killed Pacumeni, not Pahoran II. Paanchi may have had a part in the assassination plot, but without doubt did not personally kill Pahoran II. See Helaman Chapter 1, Verse 9.
tower. The other answers may seem a little tempting because many prophets prayed on hills, moutaintops, or rocks, but Nephi prayed on a tower in this case. Nephi was disgusted with the Nephites because those in the north had rejected him, and the wicked in Zarahemla were being pardoned because of their money, while the righteous were being condemned. See Helaman 7:10.
Gadianton. Gadianton was the leader of a secret band of wicked men. Before the book of Helaman, the Gadianton robbers (as they were called) did not exist - or at least we don't have records of them. Therefore, in the space of few years, they became very powerful. The judgment-seat was a democratic political office that was supposed to be chosen by popular vote. The fact that a wicked man was appointed means either that the majority of the people were wicked, or that the wicked men were using other means to get into office. See Helaman 7:4.
Timber. Because the land lacked timber, the Nephites in this land became very expert in working with cement. See Helaman Chapter 3, Verse 6.
North. There were wars and contentions among the Nephites, and a group of Nephites traveled very far to the North, where there were many lakes and rivers. See Helaman Chapter 3, Verse 3.
|In the Land of Nephi, the Lamanites cast Nephi and Lehi into prison. They went to the prison to kill them and saw that Nephi and Lehi were encircled by fire. The Lamanites, on the other hand, were surrounded by a cloud of darkness. What was the name of the Nephite dissenter, among the Lamanites, who explained how they could escape from this cloud of darkness?||Helaman Chapters 3-7
Aminadab. Akish was a Lamanite believer from the book of Alma. Aaron was a missionary/prophet from the book of Alma, and Ammah was one of his companions. Aminadab knew much about the church of Christ because he had once belonged to it. See Helaman Chapter 5, Verses 35-41.
|Nephi and Lehi had much success preaching to the Lamanites. According to the text, how many were baptized from "the Land of Zarahemla and round about"?||Helaman Chapters 3-7
8000. Some of those who were baptized were Nephite dissenters, who hated the Nephites. Nephi and Lehi truly were prophets of God. See Helaman 5:19.
Cezoram. It is unclear whether Nephi was voted out of office or whether he voluntarily gave it up. See Helaman 5:1.
The sealing power. The Lord granted Nephi the power to seal in heaven by sealing here on earth.
|Chapter 10. The Lord was very pleased with Nephi and all that he had done. Which was NOT one of the things the Lord listed that pleased Him so much?||Helaman Chapters 8-12
That Nephi had not prayed to other gods, as the Nephites and Lamanites were beginning to do.. Although praying only to the God of Israel is undoubtedly a good thing, we only have the other three compliments in the text.
|Helaman Chapter 10. Many people did not believe that Nephi was a prophet of God. How did the people react after Nephi had given them two signs that he was a prophet?||Helaman Chapters 8-12
They left him alone, each going their own way. Surprisingly, they left him!
|Chapter 9. In Chapter 9 of the book of Helaman, one of the chief judges was murdered by his brother. What was the name of the murdered chief judge?||Helaman Chapters 8-12
Seezoram. This is a tough question because Seantum was the murderer.
|Chapter 9. In the book of Helaman, one of the chief judges was murdered by his brother. Some men were sent to see the murdered judge. How many were sent?||Helaman Chapters 8-12
5. A trifle, I know, but this site is about trivia, after all.
|Chapter 8: Nephi was prophesying of the judgments of God that would come to the Nephites if they didn't repent. The Nephites didn't believe that he could have such power to prophesy. Nephi gave them a sign to prove he was a prophet. What was it?||Helaman Chapters 8-12
He prophesied their chief judge's death. The other answers may be similar to other scripture stories.
