Who are designated as “the Gentiles” in the Book of Mormon?


Question: Who are designated as “the Gentiles” in the Book of Mormon?

Answer: Two main categories of people identify as “the Gentiles” in the Book of Mormon: (1) those who come from the old world to the new to inherit this land (1 Nephi 13:12–15); and (2) those among them called “the fulness of the Gentiles.” That expression comes from Jacob’s birthright blessing of Ephraim (Hebrew melo’ haggoyim; Genesis 48:19) and identifies spiritual kings and queens among end-time Ephraimite Gentiles who restore the house of Israel to a knowledge of Christ and to lands of inheritance (Isaiah 49:22–23; 1 Nephi 15:13; 2 Nephi 10:7–9; 3 Nephi 16:4).
