This week’s episode focuses mostly on Oliver Cowdery as he begins to help Joseph with the translation. We finish with section 10, which has the Lord declare that the Book of Mormon contains “the true points of my doctrine, yea, and the ONLY doctrine which is in me,” and that “whosoever declares more or less than this, the same is not of me, but is against me.”

As with the first vision, there are additional accounts of Joseph’s encounter with an angel in September 1823 that provide more information than is found in the Joseph Smith History. After reviewing Joseph’s four accounts, we dive into a series of letters Oliver Cowdery wrote in 1835 that provide detailed information about Joseph’s frame of mind and the Old Testament foundation for the work Joseph was to be involved with.

Joseph produced four separate accounts of his first vision: 1832 (while the fulness was on the earth), 1835 (while the church was being downgraded), 1838 (during the Missouri debacle) and 1842 (in the middle of the Nauvoo period). In this episode we discuss the similarities and differences between those accounts and how the time and context of their recording could explain those differences.
