Mosiah 22

Read Chapter 22 HERE.

Plans are made for the people to escape from Lamanite bondage—The Lamanites are made drunk—The people escape, return to Zarahemla, and become subject to King Mosiah.

When Ammon is with Limhi and his people, they "brainstorm" about a way to escape from Lamanite bondage. I think it's interesting that they consulted with the people, "and even they did cause that all the people should gather themselves together; and this they did that they might have the voice of the people concerning the matter."

I guess I would have expected the leaders to make a decision and instruct the people likewise, but here we see a "true" democracy...

I think Gideon is the bomb. He is a valiant servant of his God and country, and eventually seals his valiance with his death. I wish we knew more about him! Well, Gideon comes up with a plan to get the Lamanite guards drunk, and escape through the back wall.

This plan is successful and the people of Limhi join with King Mosiah in the city of Zarahemla!
