On this episode of Mormonish Podcast, Rebecca and Landon are joined by Ganesh Cherian to discuss The Allegory of the Olive Tree found in Jacob 5 of the Book of Mormon.

This complex allegory is often pointed to as evidence that an uneducated farm boy like Joseph Smith could never have produced something so intricate as the retelling of this story. And its also often said that the existence of this allegory in the Book of Mormon proves that the book has ancient roots (no pun intended.)

Ganesh and the Mormonish team dive into the text as we deconstruct the allegory’s words and phrases themselves to unravel the mystery.
