“Thy Seed and Also the Seed of Thy Brethren”

Brant Gardner

The prophetic scene shifts from a discussion of Christ to a discussion of the seed of Nephi and his brethren. In Lehi's vision, there is little indication that this part of the prophecy was included. However, since Lehi's vision does deal with his desires that his family partake of the fruit of the tree of life, and this prophecy deals with the future of Lehi's posterity, there is a link which ties this prophetic expansion to the original vision.
