1 Behold, my brethren, do ye not remember to have read the words of the prophet Zenos, which he spake unto the house of Israel . . .
Elder George Reynolds wrote:
“Zenos [was a] Hebrew prophet, often quoted by the Nephite servants of God. All we are told of his personal history is that he was slain because he testified boldly of what God revealed to him. That he was a man greatly blessed of the Lord with the spirit of prophecy is shown by that wonderful and almost incomparable parable of the vineyard given at length by Jacob [see Jacob 5]. His prophecies are also quoted by Nephi [see 1 Nephi 19:10, 12, 16], Alma [see Alma 33:3, 13, 15], Amulek [see Alma 34:7], Samuel the Lamanite [see Helaman 15:11], and Mormon [see 3 Nephi 10:16].”
