Book of Mormon: Seed, Fruit Seed, Fruit, and Seed

Book of Mormon: Seed, Fruit Seed, Fruit, and Seed

Beautiful!! Look at this:

1 Nephi 8:1 AND it came to pass that we had gathered together all manner of seeds of every kind, both of grain of every kind, and also of the seeds of fruit of every kind.

1 Nephi 8:2 And it came to pass that while my father tarried in the wilderness he spake unto us, saying: Behold, I have dreamed a dream; or, in other words, I have seen a vision.

1 Nephi 8:10 And it came to pass that I beheld a tree, whose fruit was desirable to make one happy.
1 Nephi 8:11 And it came to pass that I did go forth and partake of the fruit thereof; and I beheld that it was most sweet, above all that I ever before tasted. Yea, and I beheld that the fruit thereof was white, to exceed all the whiteness that I had ever seen.
1 Nephi 8:12 And as I partook of the fruit thereof it filled my soul with exceedingly great joy; wherefore, I began to be desirous that my family should partake of it also; for I knew that it was desirable above all other fruit.

1 Nephi 8:3 And behold, because of the thing which I have seen, I have reason to rejoice in the Lord because of Nephi and also of Sam; for I have reason to suppose that they, and also many of their seed, will be saved.

So, the Nephites are gathering all kinds of seeds, including “fruit” seeds, for their trip to the promised land. Lehi has a dream, and in it, he sees a tree bearing fruit, more valuable than all other fruit. Then, he says that he supposes Nephi and Sam and their seed will be saved.
