Avraham Gileadi – Isaiah’s Impact on Book of Mormon Prophets
It’s about what Isaiah passages in the Book of Mormon tell us, especially about our day.
Avraham Gileadi was born in 1940 in the Netherlands and grew up in New Zealand. He spent five years in Israel from 1968 to 1973 and was the first Israeli citizen to be baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Israel. He studied for a year in a rabbinic school in Jerusalem, where he learned the “manner of the Jews” or Jewish methodology. He obtained a PhD in 1981 in Hebrew Bible and Ancient Near Eastern Literature from Brigham Young University, with Hugh Nibley as chair. He has spent an entire career analyzing the Book of Isaiah and has published over a dozen books. He is the father of nine children and married Kendel Milburn in 2016. Hugh Nibley said of him, “Dr. Gileadi is the only LDS scholar I know of who is thoroughly competent to teach the words of Isaiah.”
