When Jesus Christ appeared to the Nephites * after His Resurrection, He again commanded them to write His words.  
  Therefore, give heed to My words ; write the things which I have told you ; and according to the time and the will of the Father, they shall come forth unto the Gentiles. ( 3rd Nephi 23:4 )  
     
  They did write the things Jesus told them by engraving them on metal Plates, which became the Stick of Joseph ( the Book of Mormon ). They used metal because it would not deteriorate like Papyrus, parchment, and wood does.
( See 1st Nephi 5:19 and Jacob 4:1-3 )
