(From an address given at a Boston Stake Conference, October 11, 2014)
“Behold, I have dreamed a dream.” Whenever the prophet Lehi had a dream, it meant hard things were coming for his family. This time it meant sending his sons back to Jerusalem to get Brass Plates from Laban. These plates contained “the record of the Jews and also a genealogy of [his] forefathers.”
We often think of this mission as going back to get scriptures, but scriptures were only a portion of what they were sent to get. The Lord tells them that they need to get “the record of the Jews and also a genealogy of [their] forefathers.” They were doing family history!
