This is an attempt at the form presented at the blog Mormon Midrashim. Here is one I particularly found interesting there. And if you don't know what a midrash, is, well, get thee to Wikipedia
1st Nephi 1:1 "I, Nephi, having been born of goodly parents, therefore I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my father..."
This midrash has nothing to do with the verse itself, but rather with the act of reading it. If you're Mormon, you have this verse memorized, but not because of the doctrinal significance of it. Reading it means that you're starting the Book of Mormon again. That act is important because we've all done it so many times, it is a shared experience with millions, it shows our commitment to study this great book of scripture at one definite point in time. Would to God that we all had the last verse memorized just as clearly as the first, that we always finished what we started.
