Book of Mormon Land of Promise Internal Map

Arlin Nasbaum, creator of the highly flawed and totally inaccurate H38 Virus concept, has made arrogant claims about what he calls his “internal map,” and uses the concept to ridicule other models. So here is our internal map, perhaps the most accurate “internal map” available regarding the points covered by Mormon in the scriptural record:

While this map does not include every feature, city, land, and area mentioned in the scriptural record, it does show the relationship of the most important geographical topography covered in the Book of Mormon.

It should be noted that the scriptural record does not indicate or suggest that the four seas mentioned (north, south, east and west seas) were not connected, thus the diagram shows them one continual sea which is consistent with Jacob’s description (2 Nephi 10:20). Mormon used the term “south countries” only once in describing the Nephites who had escaped the terrible annihilation at Cumorah, by saying “and also a few who had escaped into the south countries” (Mormon 6:15). These south countries Moroni clarifies: “And now it came to pass that after the great and tremendous battle at Cumorah, behold, the Nephites who had escaped into the country southward were hunted by the Lamanites, until they were all destroyed” (Mormon 8:2). Thus the South Countries are the lands south of the narrow neck as shown on the map.
