Ezias was a prophet of Old Testament times whose prophecies were apparently recorded on the plates of brass, a record brought to the Western Hemisphere by the Book of Mormon prophet Lehi. Ezias was mentioned by Nephi2 (c. 22 B.C.) in a list of prophets who testified of the coming ministry and redemption of Christ (Hel. 8:13-20).
