Moroni Visits Joseph Smith

I have to admit, I’m going to be a little sad if this week’s Sunday School lesson doesn’t start with Earth Wind and Fire‘s “September.”

Added bonus: after last night’s scripture study (and subsequent Spotify listen and Just Dance game) my family’s never going to forget the date Moroni came to visit Joseph Smith for the first time.

    Best BCC post ever.

  2. According to the earliest documents it was Nephi who visited Joseph.

  3. According to the earliest documents, such as the Articles and Covenants (1830), it was “an holy angel”. >_> Don’t conflate post-1835 naming of angels with pre-1835 practices!

    Aurelius the earliest documents do not indicate Nephi. Moroni is named early and frequently. There was a scribal error in the late JS History that had Nephi.

    How is it that I’ve never noticed this before? Thank you!

  6. AK Transplanted, I wondered the same thing. I’d never noticed until reading it this week.

  7. My teenage daughters broke into the song as we dug into this section during Seminary earlier this week.

  8. @J. Stapley, thanks for clearing that up, I’ve been hearing that rumor for sometime now, and wondered where it came from.
