150 But behold I have obtained a land of promise, in the which things I do rejoice;
151 Yea, and I know that the Lord will deliver my sons out of the hands of Laban, and bring them down again unto us in the wilderness.
152 And after this manner of language did my father Lehi comfort my mother Sariah concerning us, while we journeyed in the wilderness up to the land of Jerusalem, to obtain the record of the Jews.
153 And when we had returned to the tent of my father, behold their joy was full, and my mother was comforted;
154 And she spake, saying, Now I know of a surety that the Lord hath commanded my husband to flee into the wilderness;
155 Yea, and I also know of a surety that the Lord hath protected my sons, and delivered them out of the hands of Laban, and gave them power whereby they could accomplish the thing which the Lord hath commanded them.
156 And after this manner of language did she speak.
157 And it came to pass that they did rejoice exceedingly, and did offer sacrifice and burnt offerings unto the Lord; and they gave thanks unto the God of Israel.
158 And after they had given thanks unto the God of Israel, my father Lehi took the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, and he did search them from the beginning.
159 And he beheld that they did contain the five books of Moses, which gave an account of the creation of the world;
160 And also of Adam and Eve, who were our first parents;
161 And also a record of the Jews from the beginning, even down to the commencement of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah;
162 And also the prophecies of the holy prophets, from the beginning, even down to the commencement of the reign of Zedekiah;
163 And also many prophecies which have been spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah.
164 And it came to pass that my father Lehi also found upon the plates of brass a genealogy of his fathers;
165 Wherefore he knew that he was a descendant of Joseph; yea, even that Joseph who was the son of Jacob, who was sold into Egypt, and who was preserved by the hand of the Lord, that he might preserve his father Jacob and all his household from perishing with famine.
166 And they were also led out of captivity and out of the land of Egypt, by that same God who had preserved them.
167 And thus my father Lehi did discover the genealogy of his fathers.
168 And Laban also was a descendant of Joseph, wherefore he and his fathers had kept the records.
169 And now when my father saw all these things he was filled with the Spirit, and began to prophesy concerning his seed; that these plates of brass should go forth unto all nations, kindreds, tongues and people, who were of his seed.
170 Wherefore he said that these plates of brass should never perish, neither should they be dimmed any more by time.
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
