The first pages of The Book of Mormon start in Jerusalem at around 600 B.C. before it was destroyed and the people taken captive or killed.  Lehi, a prophet of God, was warned to take his family into the wilderness to escape destruction.

He shortly was commanded to return and convince Ishmael and his family to join them in the wilderness.  They traveled near the Red Sea at times.  After a period of time Ishmael died.

The Book of Mormon records in First Nephi 16:34   “And it came to pass that Ishmael died, and was buried in the place which was called Nahom.”

Early critics of the Book of Mormon scoffed and claimed that Joseph Smith had fabricated the book or delusional or inspired by the devil.  Now, we can clearly see from this evidence indicates that he was not making things up or delusional.  You must discover if Joseph Smith was inspired by God or the devil.  In the New Testament, read James chapter 1:5 to know how to get real answers.
