  1. Was Lehi referred to as a merchant with possible business connections with Egypt.

    Also wasn’t Egyptian superior to Hebrew in writing style?

    Sort of like English vs almost any other language. For better or worse English is the most widely use business language in the world.

    • David,
      He wasn’t referred to such in the Book of Mormon unless I missed something. It’s the apologetic hope I guess.

      The issue with the writing style of Egyptian, is that the style changed multiple times within the time frame of when Joseph was there vs the destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon.
