A Revelation to Joseph and John, given in Kirtland, Ohio, March,
- Behold it is expedient in me that my servant John should write and
keep a regular history, and assist you, my servant Joseph, in transcribing
all things which shall be given you.
- Again, verily I say unto you, that he can also lift up his voice in
meetings, whenever it shall be expedient.
- And again, I say unto you, that it shall be appointed unto him to
keep the church record and history continually, for Oliver I have appointed
to another office:
- Wherefore it shall be given him, inasmuch as he is faithful, by the
Comforter, to write these things; even so: Amen.
