Lehi is called a "visionary man" in the Book of Mormon. This raises the question of what it meant for him to be a "visionary" in the context of ancient Israelite religion. This KnoWhy explores the biblical terminology for words such as "seer" and "vision" and situates Lehi in the prophetic tradition of ancient Israel.
