The brother of Jared lived at the time of the Tower of Babel. A man of remarkable faith, he was challenged to find a way to light the enclosed barges that would transport his people across the ocean to a promised land. Here he prepares to present sixteen transparent stones for the Lord to touch, allowing them to glow during the long voyage. The resulting vision was one of greatest ever recorded.
From the Book of Mormon, Ether 3:1-13, pp 492-493.
