1 Nephi 2:1
I love how the Lord sums up the situation, how he knows that people were trying to kill him. It'd be a scary situation, and to have the Lord acknowledge that would feel good.
1 Nephi 2:7
He's doing the same thing prophets of old did. He must have had the priesthood if he could start from scratch and perform all the ordinances himself.
1 Nephi 17:23-43
Nephi is comparing their journey through the wilderness to that of the Exodus. Also, I love that we get a commentary from him that summarizes the story and provides prophetic perspective.
1 Nephi 20:1
They are making the claim (or holding the status) of being "the holy people," but are not actually holy.
