“Book of Mormon: Correction to Chapter Heading for 3 Nephi 2 (Regarding White Lamanites)”

The chapter heading for 3 Nephi 2 reads, in part:

“Converted Lamanites become white and are called Nephites”.

In 3 Nephi 2:12, 14-16, we see that the converted Lamanites unite with the Nephites, are also “numbered among the Nephites”, and then the curse is taken from them, and their skin “became white like unto the Nephites”–a little more and a little bit different order from the chapter heading order; and though it might seem trite, it probably has continued to lead to misunderstandings about what “must” happen when Lamanites are converted, etc.
