Brass Plates Code

Lehi was commanded in a dream to obtain the plates of brass from Laban (see 1 Ne. 3:2–4). Use the Key to decode the purpose for obtaining them, and what they contained.

These plates are not available now, but the Lord has promised that they will come forth at a future date to the descendants of Lehi: “These plates of brass should go forth unto all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people who were of his seed. …

“These plates of brass should never perish; neither should they be dimmed any more by time.” (See 1 Ne. 5:18–19.)
