Ancient Israelite prophets were commonly called and commissioned following a biblical pattern that brought the prophet into God's presence, made him a member of God's divine council, and imparted with him heavenly secrets. Both Lehi and Nephi followed this biblical pattern in their respective prophetic commissions, which grounds the Book of Mormon in the world of ancient Israel.
