I have long known about the connections between King Benjamin's discourse and the feast of Tabernacles, and the Day of Atonement.

However, just last semester, as I was teaching King Benjamin's discourse in my BYU 121 class, I suddenly remembered that Benjamin's name means "son of the right hand." I doubt that it is a coincidence that his most important discourse was therefore about becoming a son of Christ, and being found on His right hand.

Just one of those random things that everyone else likely already knew, but that I had somehow miraculously missed all these years.
