Ezias

Ezias was an ancient prophet cited by Nephi, son of Helaman, as evidence of the coming of the Son of God. “And now I would that ye should know,” Nephi said to his companions in Zarahemla, “that even since the days of Abraham there have been many prophets that have testified these things”. Then Nephi named five prophets (in addition to Moses) whose testimony confirmed the mission of the Lord: Zenos, Zenock, Ezias, Isaiah, and Jeremiah. None of the particulars of the life of Ezias are given, only his firm testimony of the Savior. His writings were most likely contained in the brass plates of Laban and were familiar to those who were instructed in the contents of these records.
