The Mulekites And The Phoenician Connection. The Book of Mormon also introduces us to a much earlier culture known as the Jaredites who left Babylonia sometime between the 19 th and 20 th centuries BC from the Tower of Babel. Because of the brevity of the Book of Mormon text regarding these people, little has been written about them in comparison to the Nephites.
