Interpretation in Mosiah

  1. "And even I, myself [me, myself, and I, i.e., Mosiah], have labored with mine own hands that I might serve you, and that ye should not be laden with taxes."
    (Mosiah was a card-carrying member of the Republican party.) 2:14

  2. Jesus, who wouldn't be born for another 120 years or so, will be both the Son of God and the Father of heaven and earth. 3:8

  3. Although it is not entirely clear, Zeniff seems to be criticized for having "many wives and concubines." 11:2

  4. "And he [Noah] laid a tax of one fifth part of all they possessed."
    Since Noah was a bad guy (who "did not keep the commandments of the Lord") and he taxed the people 20%, I guess God (or Joseph Smith) didn't approve of flat taxes -- or maybe taxes of any kind. 11:3
