Laura Stone’s new novel, And It Came to Pass, is absolutely stunning. It’s clear from the Author’s Note at the beginning of the book that this is a very personal story for Stone, and it’s one I’m so glad she decided to tell, because she did it beautifully.

I have friends who grew up Mormon/5(71). And It Came to Pass is a raw and powerful story revealing two things: gay people fall in love just like everybody else, and we as Mormons have a way to go in understanding this.

Our own experience of love will not be complete until we do. --Carol Lynn Pearson, bestselling author of Goodbye, I Love you PRAISE FOR LAURA STONE/5(38).

And It Came to Pass--Not to Stay Hardcover – by R. Buckminster Fuller (Author)Cited by: 1. Wayehi is found about 1, times in the Hebrew Bible, but it was translated only times as “and it came to pass” in the King James Version. Joseph Smith did not introduce such variety into the translation of the Book of Mormon.

In the Book of Mormon, two of the profound uses of the phrase, “And now it came to pass,” are in chapters 11 and 19 of 3rd Nephi.

Chapter 11 recounts the Savior descending from the heavens and beginning His ministry here in America. The Book of Mormon preserves the phrase “And now it came to pass” perfectly as translated by the And it came to pass book and power of God. It is as if God is saying that the Book of Mormon is My Truth “now” to tie the past (Bible) scriptures to the future scriptures that “shall” come forth, as with the Doctrine and Covenants.

And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.

And It Came To Pass Not To Stay. This elegant and timely book contains in a nutshell Buckminster Fuller's social and political philosophy, including his analysis of our present world crisis and his predictions for the future/5.

CHAPTER VI. And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters.

And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.' 3.

"It came to pass." The phrase occurs again and again in the Old Testament. "It came to pass after four hundred and thirty years that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt," and, "It came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took the.

Some readers wonder why these words occur so often in the Book of Mormon compared with the Bible. Actually, the Hebrew word wayehi is translated in the King James Version of the Bible as "it came to pass," but it is also translated as "it happened, came, had come, became, arose, was, now," and so forth.

The phrase “and it came to pass” is attested for in all of the languages most closely linked to the Book of Mormon. In these ancient writing systems, the phrase is used for a similar or for the exact same purpose as it is used in the Book of Mormon.

It is also. The Hebrew word in Genesis 'it came to pass' is the very same Hebrew word found in Genesis which is translated 'became in most Bibles; and it is the same Hebrew word found in Genesis that in most Bibles is translated 'was'.

All 3 occurrences mean. 86 times in the scriptures ’ came to pass.’ As long as God has said it, it will definitely come to pass. It was bright and sunny when God told Noah to build the ark and tell people that He will destroy the earth with flood in 7days (Flood lasted for 40 days).

Noah obeyed and it came to pass Genesis Author: Segun Omole. Some have mocked the frequent repetition of "and it came to pass" in the Book of Mormon. Mark Twain famously joked that if the phrase were omitted, Joseph would have published a pamphlet instead of a book. As it turns out, however, this much-maligned phrase is actually evidence of the Book of Mormon's authentic antiquity.

Now on the journey, at the night's resting-place, the Lord came in his way and would have put him to death. - Basic English Bible And it came to pass on the way, in the inn, that Jehovah came upon him, and sought to slay him. - Darby Bible And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.

- Webster's Bible. The extensive use of the phrase "it came to pass" in the Book of Mormon across all of the books, I believe, suggest a single author. The author, of course, in an attempt to make his work appear biblical in nature would use such words and phrases.

It is not only that the phrase is used excessively, but also that the phrase is used inappropriately. Not so with Samuel L.

Clemens. In his book "Roughing It", which recounts his exploits as a young writer visiting the American West, he received a copy of the Book of Mormon (I believe directly from Brigham Young), and made the following observation: "'And it came to pass' was [Joseph Smith's] pet.

And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the book of the law, that he rent his clothes. that he rent. 2 Kings Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the LORD, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me.

The phrase is also, of course, frequently found in the King James Version of the Bible, which is no doubt why Joseph Smith used it in the BoM; it just sounds so darned biblical.

The trouble is that he liked it so much that he got carried away with it. Here's a summary of the occurrences of "it came to pass" in the Bible and the BoM.

1 And it came to pass that he begat Omer, and Omer reigned in his stead. And Omer begat Jared; and Jared begat sons and daughters.

2 And Jared rebelled against his father, and came and dwelt in the land of Heth. And it came to pass that he did a flatter many people, because of his cunning words, until he had gained the half of the kingdom.

3 And when he had gained the half of the kingdom he. Then old Mr. John who was 80 years old, with head of white hair and dark black skin, stood up and said with as much strength as he could muster, "It says, 'And it came to pass ' 85 times in the Bible.".

The class started to laugh a little, thinking that /5(21). Sometimes the phrase is recorded 'Now it came to Pass' or 'For Behold it came to pass' or 'But Behold, it came to pass'. or 'and it shall come to pass.' The phrase is not unique to the Book of Mormon, the Bible utilizes the phrase or one of its derivatives, times in the Old Testament and 87 times in the New Testament.
