The BOOK [Stick] of LEVI

PREFACE

This record evaluates historical knowledge, as it relates to: ------  The BOOK [Stick] of LEVI
Information gleaned from social contexts, both secular and religious, are reviewed, using
modern genealogical research specialist standards: to properly reconstruct and correctly
portray real historical lives and family pedigrees.  Cultural, religious and family tradition,
(their stated facts and viewpoints), are surveyed within given ancient contexts of
primary
and secondary record sources, as handed down for the benefit of our modern generation.

Genealogy:
A Master Number beginning with three digits is given to the direct line
descending stem.  All other descending lineages are ordered according to
where they connect into the direct line of descent as sons or daughters.
They have a dash (-) to show the connection.  The Numbers are arranged
by time of birth in the family, where possible, with the direct descendant
being placed where he or she belongs by order of birth.  In cases of long
and questionable pedigrees, the lineage is shown descending down, but
with no numbering system attached.  Added commentary is author's opinion.

[Research Note: The Gathering of Israel in the Last Days will require the restoration
of the
Brass Plates of Laban to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. D&C 77: 11
reveals the massive scope of the gathering of Israel in this, the Latter-days. It mentions: Q.
What are we to understand by sealing the one hundred and forty-four thousand, out of all
the tribes of Israel--twelve thousand out of every tribe? A. We are to understand that those
who are sealed are high priests, ordained unto the holy order of God, to administer
the everlasting gospel; for they are they who are ordained out of every nation, kindred,
tongue, and people, by the angels to whom is given power over the nations of the earth,
to bring as many as will come to the church of the Firstborn. This suggests a very direct
oversight by mighty angels, such as The Three Nephites and John the Revelator, among
many others. See: A Study of the History of the Office of High Priest :: ETD. This gathering
does require careful reconstruction of the records, to restore genealogical foundations of
the original posterity of the Twelve Tribes; thus aiding Elijah the Prophet, who holds keys
of administrative authority, on both sides of the veil; turning hearts of the children, using
callings and elections made sure covenants, of those fully tested; made with their fathers;
sealing faithful into the Church of the Firstborn; having callings and elections made sure.
Pedigree fragments currently available, initiate this process, by using Biblical references.

[Research Note: To assume ancestry of this House of Israel, was composed or created,
later in generational time, by disingenuous scribes, transcends all rational credulity.
It suggests an underlying, latent or hidden anti-Semitic, and / or, anti-Zionist reasoning.]

Genealogy in the Torah
           The Midrash (Midrash Rabba, Parasha 24) explains this term [Sefer Toldot Adam
           (Book of the history of man), Bereishit (Genesis) 5:1] to indicate that Adam,
           the first man, was given a preview of all the generations that were destined
           to descend from him. God revealed to Adam each generation with its scholars,
           each generation and its wise men, each generation and its writers, each generation
           and its leaders. Adam was the only one who saw the yikhus (or the lineage)
           which descended from him, until the end of all generations. (Yalkut Shimoni)
          
The Midrash incorrectly asserts that the Messiah (who has already come; was born,
           lived, and died on the cross, for the salvation of all mankind; namely, Jesus Christ),
           will arrive only when all those generations that were predestined to live have
           in fact been born. Literally taken, it would be a period of no physical conception.
           Enoch, during his lifetime, testified (
Moses 6): "For a book of remembrance we
           have written among us, according to the pattern given by the finger of God;
           and it is given in our own language." Also, (
Moses 7): "And the Lord showed Enoch
           all things, even unto the end of the world; and he saw the day of the righteous,
           the hour of their redemption, and received a fulness of joy;"
          
Doctrine and Covenants 107 declares that three years previous to his death, "Adam
           stood up in the midst of the congregation (made up of the residue of his posterity,
           who were righteous); and, notwithstanding he was bowed down with age, being
           full of the Holy Ghost, predicted whatsoever should befall his posterity
           unto the latest generation. These things were all written in the book of Enoch,
           and are to be testified of in due time." See:

         "
Chief Prince of Ephraim".  Genealogical Tables of the Sovereigns of the World,
         identifies his 1. descending child as Marcomir. The name, Marcomir, also shows
         on the pedigree as a son of Priamus, a P. in Gaul. Also, listed as 10. Marcomir.
         Marcomir is noted four times, at least, in the Dukes of the East Franks. X Marcomir,
         is furthermore listed as a lineage descendant. By a word comparison construction,
         the Brother of Jared was identified as Mahonri
Moriancumer, in the Book of Mormon.
         This suggests that fragments of Adamic words were preserved within Sicambrian
         Kings, the Kings of the West Franks, from whom the Kings of France are descended.]

D. 
Ezekiel 37: 16-19  Moreover, thou son of man [Ezekiel], take thee one stick,
     and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions:
     then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim,
     and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another
     into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.  And when the children
     of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou
    
meanest by these?  Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will
     take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of
     Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah,
     and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. 
1 Nephi 13: 37-42
     And blessed are they who shall seek to bring forth my Zion at that day, for
     they shall have the gift and the power of the Holy Ghost; and if they endure
     unto the end they shall be lifted up at the last day, and shall be saved in the
     everlasting kingdom of the Lamb; and whoso shall publish peace, yea, tidings
     of great joy, how beautiful upon the mountains shall they be.  And it came to
     pass that I beheld the remnant of the seed of my brethren, and also the book
     of the Lamb of God, which had proceeded forth from the mouth of the Jew,
     that it came forth from the Gentiles unto the remnant of the seed of my brethren.
     And after it had come forth unto them I beheld other books, which came forth
     by the power of the Lamb, from the Gentiles unto them, unto the convincing
     of the Gentiles and the remnant of the seed of my brethren, and also the Jews
     who were scattered upon all the face of the earth, that the records of the prophets
     and of the twelve apostles of the Lamb are true.  And the angel spake unto me,
     saying: These last records, which thou hast seen among the Gentiles, shall
     establish the truth of the first, which are of the twelve apostles of the Lamb,
     and shall make known the plain and precious things which have been taken
     away from them; and shall make known to all kindreds, tongues, and people,
     that the Lamb of God is the Son of the Eternal Father, and the Savior of the
     world; and that all men must come unto him, or they cannot be saved.  And
     they must come according to the words which shall be established by the mouth
     of the Lamb; and the words of the Lamb shall be made known in the records of
     thy seed, as well as in the records of the twelve apostles of the Lamb; where-
     fore they both shall be established in one; for there is one God and one
     Shepherd over all the earth.  And the time cometh that he shall manifest
     himself unto all nations, both unto the Jews and also unto the Gentiles;
     and after he has manifested himself unto the Jews and also unto the Gentiles,
     then he shall manifest himself unto the Gentiles and also unto the Jews,
     and the last shall be first, and the first shall be last.

E.  The ancient
Books of the Bible, compared with Mormon Archaeology,
     invalidate the documentary hypothesis theories, traditionally known as:
     J, E, P, and D; for the Torah and the Deuteronomy history, from Joshua
     to Kings.  Some modern historians incorrectly state that the Torah
     was gradually recorded as the Hebrew Bible, between the 5th century
     B.C. and the 2nd century B.C.  Clearly, internal source evidence from
     the
Pearl of Great Price, the OT - NT and the Book of Mormon, suggest
     primary source documents, or copies thereof, going back to the time of
     Adam and (Eve - the Mother of all Living), were readily available to
     
Moses, who then wrote or copied them for himself and other Israelites.
     The
list of biblical figures identified in extra-biblical sources is compelling.
     Additional validation of the Bible, as a surviving primary source document,
     is made by the
Joseph Smith, Jr. Translation of the Bible.  Words added
     and corrections made, restore the original formation and sense of ancient
     scribes and prophets, including technical details from Genesis to Revelation.
     Joseph Smith, Jr. said, [I believe the Bible as it read when it came from the pen
     of the original writers. Ignorant translators, careless transcribers, or designing and
     corrupt priests have committed many errors. As it read, Gen. 6:6, "It repented the
     Lord that he had made man on the earth"; also, Num. 23:19, "God is not a man,
     that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent"; which I do not
     believe. But it ought to read, "It repented Noah that God made man." This I believe,
     and then the other quotation stands fair. If any man will prove to me, by one passage
     of Holy Writ, one item I believe to be false, I will renounce and disclaim it as far as I
     promulgated it.]

Adam, re: Joseph Smith, Jr.]
      - See: Discourse, 17 January 1843, as Reported by Wilford Woodruff, Page 2
        Br Joseph spoke to some length on the kingdom of God & the Baptism of John,
        he said the kingdom of God was set upon the earth in all ages from the days
        of Adam to the presant (sic) time (1) whenever there was a man on earth who had
        authority to Administar (sic) the ordinances of the gospel or a priest of God &
        unto such a man God did reveal his will    Concerning the Baptism of John it was
        the Baptism of repentance unto remission of sins for the receiving of the Holy Ghost
        & it was the gospel Baptism. These were questions which had been in debate for
        many years & in some degree among the Saints. He also spoke upon the subject
        of honor & dishonor &c [p. [2]] - Footnotes - [1] JS consistently taught that people
        who were alive before the establishment of the early Christian church knew of
        and worshipped Jesus Christ. Both the Book of Mormon and JS's revision of the
        Old Testament included teachings about Christ and Christian worship predating
        New Testament times. There were, according to JS, "dispensations and keys and
        powers and glories" that had been "revealed from the days of Adam even to the
        present time," Adam having been the person to whom "Christ was first revealed."
        . . . [2] JS elaborated on earlier instruction, given in 1840, that "the keys of the
        Kingdom of God" were on the earth "in all ages of the world" and constituted
        the means by which "all knowledge, doctrine, the plan of salvation and every
        important truth is revealed from heaven." According to JS, this pattern of revealing
        truth to humanity would continue "to the end of time." . . . [3] JS's reference to the
        church as the kingdom of God in this sermon responded to various disputes in the
        nineteenth century among American Protestants regarding the original founding
        date of Christ's church and earthly kingdom. . . . to the day of Pentecost . . . etc.

      A dispassionate evaluation of records of beginnings of ancient societies indicates that

      have no fundamental attachable physical reality, outside of archaeological findings.
      Physical determinism of mankind is only established within Judao-Christian theology.
     
Faith in the Messiah originates existence as always following from prior conditions.
      An all knowing God eliminates all universal human contingencies and indeterminism.
      The Prophet, Seer, Revelator, and Translator, Joseph Smith, Jr., High Priest President
      of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spoke, at the Temple in
Nauvoo.
      Joseph spoke on the Spirit of Elias-- the Spirit of Elijah and the Spirit of Messiah--
      the Spirit of Elias is a forerunner same as John the Baptist-- the Spirit of Elijah is the
      sealing power-- to seal the hearts of the Fathers to the children-- and the children to
      the Parents-- as Paul declared that the Saints of the last days could not be perfect with-
      out them-- neither can they be perfect without us-- the Spirit of Messiah is all power in
      Heaven and in Earth-- Enthroned in the Heavens as King of Kings and Lord of Lords--
      See:
Creation: The Creation (The Creation) and Doctrine and Covenants 77.
      Furthermore,
Doctrine and Covenants 101, verses 32-34, validates that current,
      modern science, will never be able to comprehend or ascertain the origins,
      or destiny of this earth, the solar system, or the Universe; except on the principle
      of valiant service and sacrifice in the cause of our King Jesus Christ, who will reveal
      all things at His coming in Glory. Keys of the Universe are restricted to all worthy
      Celestial administrators, such as our Ancient of Days, Father
Adam.  When Son Ahman
      comes, Adam delivers up his stewardship to Christ, that which was delivered to him as
      holding the keys of the Universe, but retains his standing as head of the human family.

  - SHEM: The Jerusalem Targum, and Jonathan ben Uziel in his Targum, and several
    other Jewish writers, suppose Melchizedek to be the same with Shem, the son of Noah;
    and this supposition has been ingeniously supported by the editors of Calmet's Dict.
    in their Enquiries and Discuss. Vol. III. . . . The Arabic version, in Gen. xiv. 18, renders
    . . . Malko Aladal, considering the word as an appellative rather than a Proper name.
    Probably the Arabic translator might be influenced by the customary name given to
    royalty in his country; for . . . many of the Mohammedan princes were, as a token of
    respect, distinguished by this appellation . . . Malck al Afdhal. It may not be improper
    here to observe, that the Salem above mentioned, was, most probably, Jerusalem,
    antiently (sic) known by the name of Salem--See Ps. lxxxvi. 2. And thus the writers
    of the Targums call Melchizedek . . . King of Jerusalem. . . . Porro Salem [read
    Melchizedek] rex Hierusalem dicitur, quae prius Salem appellabatur.
    - LDS Studies: The Connection between Melchizedek and Shem
      Melchizedek received his priesthood through the lineage of his fathers, even till Noah
      [means my priesthood came down in time from Adam to Noah, my father]; from Noah
      till Enoch through the lineage of their fathers [means my priesthood lineage descended
      from Adam via Enoch to Noah, my father, through the lineage of their fathers]; for this
      priesthood was received from Enoch to Abel, who received the priesthood by the hand
      of his father Adam. The priesthood lineage is very clearly recorded; it is a descending
      pedigree lineage, anciently from the man Adam, to the honorable Abel, his slain son
      [who was a brother of Seth, another son of Adam: the actual lineage ancestry of Noah].
      [Research Note: Do not interpret ancient genealogies from the standpoint, or viewpoint,
      of modern, unlearned genealogists, who concentrate on creating ascending research
      pedigrees. Until the Patriarchal Priesthood endowments and covenants were completely
      broken, and records discontinued, or intentionally destroyed; genealogies established,
      in the Ancient Book of Remembrance, were recorded as righteous descending posterity.
      Our Father Abraham clearly states he received handed down records from his fathers.
      Apostle Bruce R. McConkie was incorrect in his creation of gaps in the record source.]
      Now Melchizedek was a man of faith, who wrought righteousness; and when a child
      he feared God, and stopped the mouths of lions, and quenched the violence of fire.
      And thus, having been approved of God, he was ordained an high priest after the
      order of the covenant which God made with Enoch. Shem, the great pre/post flood
      High Priest heir of Noah, was ordained an high priest after the order of the covenant
      which God made with the pre-flood High Priest Enoch; for as a child, Shem feared
      God. Shem stopped the mouths of lions, and quenched the violence of fire, prior
      to the Flood, since after the Flood there was no general wickedness left and there
      was only a minimal number of lions remaining upon the earth. Additionally, according
      to Alma, Chapter 13, of the Book of Mormon, Melchizedek was a High Priest, and was
      a king over the land of Salem . . . for he was the king of Salem, and he did reign under
      his father. Noah lived from 2944 B.C. to 1994 B.C. Shem, or Melchizedek, the High Priest
      lived from 2452 B.C. to 1852 B.C. Abraham lived in the time period between circa --
      2062 B.C. to 1827 B.C.. Under the Patriarchal Order, Terah practiced idolatry; unable
      to receive tithing.  Under the Patriarchal Order, Nahor died in 2013 B.C.; Shem was alive.
      [The Book of Jubilees suggests Nahor was taught idolatry by his father.] Under the
      Patriarchal Order, Serug died in 1961 B.C.; Shem was alive. [The Book of Jubilees
      suggests Serug worshipped idols.] Under the Patriarchal Order, Reu died in 1984 B.C.;
      Shem was alive. [The Chronicles of Jerahmeel suggest he had the spirit of prophesy;
      was righteous.] Under the Patriarchal Order, Peleg died in 2014 B.C.; Shem was alive.
      [The Chronicles of Jerahmeel suggest he was righteous.] Under the Patriarchal Order,
      Eber / Heber died in 1823 B.C. [Shem was alive until 1852 B.C. and Abraham died
      between 1887 / 1827 B.C. Abraham either died in 1887 B.C., before Shem died,
      or outlived him by 25 years. Nevertheless, Eber signifies "the region beyond";
      unconnected to Salem.] Under the Patriarchal Order, Salah / Shelah died in 1884 B.C.;
      Shem was alive. Under the Patriarchal Order, Arphaxad died in 1914 B.C.; Shem
      was alive. Shem would have been King of Salem after the time of the flood, a city
      of righteousness, (after they were called to repentance), under the direction of his father
      Noah, who was also a King, for over a period of 350 years. . . . Finally, The Priesthood
      was first given To Adam: he obtained to (crossed out) the first Presidency & held the
      Keys of it, from genration (sic) to Generation; he obtained it in the creation before
      the world was formed as in Gen. 1, 26:28, - he had dominion given him over every living
      Creature. He is Michael, the Archangel, spoken of in the Scriptures, -- Then to Noah
      who is Gabriel, he stands next in authority to Adam in the Priesthood; he was called
      of God to this office & was the Father of all living in his day, & To him was Given the
      Dominion. These men held keys, first on earth, & then in Heaven. -- . . . Dan VII Speaks
      of the Ancient of Days, he means the oldest man, our Father Adam, Michael; he will
      call his children together . . . Both Adam and Noah also obtained the Priesthood Title
      of "King"; or in other words, all three were Prophets, Priests, and Kings, in their own
      right; Adam holding furthermore, the very Keys of the Universe, under the direct
      jurisdiction of Jesus Christ. [Also known as the Jehovah God of the Old Testament.]
    - Letter to James Arlington Bennet, 13 November 1843, Page 4b
      Joseph Smith, Jr. says: Shall I, who hold the keys of the last kingdom, in which is the
      dispensation of the fulness of all things spoken by the mouths of all the holy prophets
      since the world began; under the sealing power of the Melchizedek priesthood,
      shall I stoop from the sublime authority of Almighty God, to be handled as a monkey's
      cat's paw, -- and pettify myself into a clown to act the farce of political demagoguery?
      No, no verily; no! . . . I solve mathematical problems of Universities; with truth . . .

      . . . Abraham received the Priesthood from Melchesedec (sic) . . . and it was this
      same Melchizedek to whom Abraham paid tithes; yea, even our father Abraham

      as the ancient apostles were. [Research Note: Since the Patriarchal Priesthood
      was the former, and only Priesthood Order of the ancient Church of Jesus Christ,
      that was upon the earth, in the days of Abraham, then it is necessarily self evident
      that Melchizedek was one of the ancient ancestors of our Father Abraham.] . . .

      they have power given them to seal up the Saints unto eternal life."

    [Research Note: The world and earth are not synonymous terms. (The commentaries
    by the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., are a complete repudiation of modern science. . . .)
    The world is the human family. This earth was organized or formed out of other
    planets which were broke up and remodelled (sic) and made into the one on which
    we live (i.e., unorganized, pulverized elements). The elements are eternal. That which
    has a beginning . . . will surely have an end. Take a ring, it is without beginning or
    end; cut it for a beginning place, and at the same time you will have an ending place.
    A key, every principle proceeding from God is eternal, and any principle which is not
    eternal is of the Devil. The sun has no beginning or end, the rays which proceed from
    himself (the Sun) have no bounds, consequently are eternal (i.e., a Celestial Planet,
    or glorified, eternal Star). So it is with God. If the soul of man had a beginning it will
    surely have an end. In the translation; "without form and void" it should read "empty
    and desolate" The word "created" should be formed or organized. . . . Observations
    on the Sectarian God. That which is without body or parts is nothing. There is no other
    God in heaven but that God who has flesh and bones (in a Celestial state of being).
    . . .
The great principle of happiness consists in having a body. . . . All beings who
    have bodies have power over those who have not. . . . This earth will be rolled back
    into the presence of God and crowned with Celestial Glory (i.e., become like our Sun).

  - Isaiah: Book of Isaiah | Prophecy, Messianic Hope & Historical Context | Britannica
    [Research Note: Britannica improperly divides the writings of Isaiah into two areas
    of authorship, ignoring other resources presenting findings on
Understanding Isaiah.
    As mentioned, Nephi taught that the words of Isaiah "are plain unto all those that
    are filled with the spirit of prophecy". The Book of Mormon prophet Nephi further
    stated concerning Joseph, son of Jacob, that "He truly prophesied concerning all
    his seed. And the prophecies which he wrote, there are not many greater." So this
    resolves all problems. The Book of Mormon is true, because it is not restricted by
    time considerations; meaning events going forward for generations of time, are
    known and can be spoken of, as if occurring within the present generation, of living
    prophets, seers, and revelators; such as Joseph of Egypt speaking in future times,
    of the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, by his descendants Joseph, father and
    son, or Joseph Smith, Sr. and Joseph Smith, Jr.; which only the faithful comprehend.
    This same power of belief, founded upon a perfect faith in Jesus Christ, grants a JST
    Genesis 50 translation, to be valid, when ancient Joseph prophesied the bondage of
    his father's family in Egypt and their eventual deliverance by Moses, and specifically
    names him and his brother, Aaron. Moses was to deliver Israel from Egypt, have
    power over the Red Sea, receive commandments from God, and be assisted by
    Aaron as his spokesman. This belief system is grounded in the spirit of prophecy.]
  - Jablonski: and particularly the Glossarium P. E. Jablonskii Voc. AEgypt. p. cclii. &c.,
    [P. E. Jablonski, who stressed the fact that the Gnostics liked to represent, Christ
    as the Sun (god). From:
Three Elusive Amulets on JSTOR];
    [
The risen Christ is our SUN - Wijngaards Institute for Catholic Research].
    A Gnostic letter of around 200 AD states that resurrection is real for us Christians,
    because we 'possess' resurrection. "Resurrection of the spirit", it says, "swallows
    resurrection of the psyche and resurrection of the flesh". It then describes resurrection
    of the spirit as "being drawn upward by God as rays are drawn by the sun". [Research
    Note: A partial "resurrection" is described in the Book of Mormon, in the distinct case
    of Three Nephites. In the Book of Mormon, the Three Nephites (also known as the
   
Three Nephite Disciples) are three Nephite disciples of Jesus who were blessed by
    Jesus to remain alive on the earth, engaged in the ministry and in their apostolic
    callings until his Second Coming. As described in Third Nephi chapter 28, this change
    occurred when they were caught up into heaven. Similar to Mormon beliefs about
    John:
the Apostle. Three Nephites were granted immortality in order to carry out their
    ministering work on the earth . . . they can show themselves unto whatsoever person
    or people they choose. Wikipedia falsely denigrates these facts as "Mormon folklore".]

       and group strategies meant to establish legitimacy, prestige,

     Royal Genealogies : Or, the Genealogical Tables of Emperors, Kings and Princes,
     From Adam to these Times. James Anderson (Freemason), D. D.
     PART I. Begins with a Chronological History of the World,
     from the Beginning of Time to the Christian Era, and then the Genealogies
     of the earliest great Families and most ancient Sovereigns of Alia, Europe,
     Africa and America, down to Charlemain, and many of 'em down to these Times.
     PART II.  Begins with the Grand Revolution of Charlemain, and carries on the Royal
     and Princely Genealogies of Europe down to these Times, concluding with those
     of the Britannic Isles. See a more particular Account in the Preface
     and in the Contents of the Tables. [Research Note: The Royal Genealogies
     by James Anderson can be best read by switching to view as plain text,
     using the "More actions menu" at the top left side of the front book page.
     Genealogical Tables: Tab. II., or Table Two (2), mention is made of Antediluvian
     Patriarchs, according to Profane History. It should be clearly noted from a Biblical
     perspective, that after the Tower of Babel, naming patterns were distorted globally,
     when the Language of Adam was lost, in its purity, except in peculiar cases; such
     as the
Jaredites, the greatest nation upon the earth; until destroyed by internal, open
     civil warfare, waged across the
length and breadth of the North American Continent.
     Table III. shows Chaldean Kings before the Flood, from
Berosus. Table IV. mentions
     The Egyptians have also a Series of Kings, who, as they pretend, reigned before
     the Flood; and their Account begins the same Year with that of
Berossus. The naming
     of the Gods, and Demigods, who are supposed to have reigned in Egypt, clearly do
     show the transliteration of God the Father, or Ahman, and Jesus Christ, also known
     as Son Ahman, into Hephsestion /
Hephaestus, or Vulcan; as well as Helios, or the Sun.
     Ancient Patriarchs and their Priesthood powers were transmogrified into planetary
     designations; originally revealed by the words of Abraham, via Urim and Thummim.]
     The Plates within the Plates: Ether [Research Note: What was the faith of the Brother
     of Jared; also know as Mahonri Moriancumer? Answer: "And when the Lord had said
     these words, he showed unto the brother of Jared all the inhabitants of the earth which
     had been, and also all that would be; and he withheld them not from his sight, even
     unto the ends of the earth. For he had said unto him in times before, that if he would
     believe in him that he could show unto him all things--it should be shown unto him;
     therefore the Lord could not withhold anything from him, for he knew that the Lord
     could show him all things
." . . . "They shall not go forth unto the Gentiles until the day
     that they shall repent of their iniquity, and become clean before the Lord. And in that
     day that they shall exercise faith in me, saith the Lord, even as the brother of Jared did,
     (also known as Mahonri Moriancumer), that they may become sanctified in me, then will
     I manifest unto them the things which the brother of Jared (Mahonri Moriancumer) saw,
     even to the unfolding unto them all my revelations, saith Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
     the Father of the heavens and of the earth, and all things that in them are."]

025:   LEVI (the son of JACOB - ISRAEL)

Family of Levi:
Biblical Genealogy: From Levi to Herod
Levi: Chart / House of Israel |

Marriage:
Levi's wife is Melka, of the daughters of Aram, of the seed of the sons of Terah;
(
Jubilees 34: 20).

D&C 132: 38
  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]
[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

Aaronic Priesthood (
Levitical): Doctrine and Covenants 13
Although the Aaronic Priesthood is conferred in the Church today without restriction
to the lineage of Aaron, the keys of this priesthood rightly belong to the firstborn of
the seed of Aaron, and in the restoration of all things the office of bishop (president
of the priests) will once again be conferred on one (or many) of that lineage, as it
is designated by revelation to the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
day Saints. (

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who

The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we

Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
[Research Note:
RootsTech • FamilySearch was presented 29 Feb 2024 - 02 Mar 2024; it
did "provide meaningful connections through a deeper understanding of family history
and genealogy." Class Schedule Preview shows 27 DNA results. A Search of RootsTech

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."

Chronology - JewishEncyclopedia.com
Chronology of the Bible: The chronology of the Bible is an elaborate system
of lifespans, 'generations', and other means by which the Masoretic Hebrew
Bible (the text of the Bible most commonly in use today) measures the passage
of events from the creation to . . . (the year of the re-dedication of the Second
Temple). . . . The passage of time is measured initially by adding the ages of
the Patriarchs at the birth of their firstborn sons, later through express statements,
and later still by the synchronized reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah. Later,
The Great Order of the World, or
Seder Olam Rabbah, detailed all the dates of
biblical events from creation to
Alexander the Great's conquest of Persia. Thus,
Traditional Jewish Chronology has long preserved a record of dates and time
sequences of important historical events related to the Jewish nation. Josephus
painstakingly listed the complete panoply of Jewish high priests who served
during the
Second Temple period and which, by comparison of his dates when
each man officiated as high priest, can be used as a time indicator to determine
the span of time in which the Second Temple had its existence. In Early Jewish
Writings,
Flavius Josephus Against Apion. Book I, expounds upon the historical
accuracy and applications of official Ancient handed down record compilations.

. . . "But now as to our forefathers, that they took no less care about writing such
records, (for I will not say they took greater care than the others I spoke of), and
that they committed that matter to their (Aaronic) high priests and to their prophets,
(Ancient Patriarchal High Priests), and that these records have been written all
along down to our own times with the utmost accuracy, nay, if it be not too bold
for me to say it, our history will be so written hereafter, - I shall endeavor briefly
to inform you. 7. For our forefathers did not only appoint the best of these (Aaronic)
priests, and those that attended upon the Divine worship, for that design from
the beginning, (or, from the time of Adam and Eve), but made provision that the
stock of the (Aaronic) priests should continue unmixed and pure; for he who is
partaker of the priesthood must propagate of a wife of the same nation, without
having any regard to money, or any other dignities, but he is to make a scrutiny,
and take his wife's genealogy  from the ancient (Bible) tables, and procure many
witnesses to it. (7) Of this accuracy of the Jews before and in our Savior's time, in
carefully preserving their genealogies all along, particularly those of the priests,
see Josephus's Life, sect. 1. This accuracy seems to have ended at the destruction
of Jerusalem by Titus, or, however, at that by Adrian." [Further relevant information

genealogies and related family data, were being destroyed by the lawyers.)

("Embroiderings"), the latter work includes a "Letter to Aristides" on the genealogies

and those traceable to proselytes, such as Achior the Ammonite . . . , and Ruth the
Moabitess, and the mixed families which had come out of Egypt, had until then been
enrolled . . . in the archives . . . , Herod, because the family of the Israelites contributed
nothing to him, and because he was goaded by his own consciousness of his base birth,
burned the records . . . of their families, thinking to appear noble if no one else was able
by public documents . . . to trace his family to the patriarchs or proselytes, to the so--called
gers . . . of mixed descent." -

"The Lukan Genealogy of Jesus" further mentions: "We know that Herod was sensitive
about his Idumaean and therefore only half-Jewish origins, which many Jews regarded
as disqualifying him from legitimate rule over Israel . . . , that his court historian Nicolaus
of Damascus gave him a pure Jewish ancestry
. . . presumably as part of an attempt
by Herod himself to conceal his origins, and that his fear of rivals to his throne led
to decimation of the leading Jewish aristocratic families . . ." -

Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.]


Continuing, "And this is our practice not only in Judea, but wheresoever any body of men
of our nation do live, and even there an exact catalogue of our priests' marriages is kept,
I mean at Egypt and at Babylon, or in any other place of the rest of the habitable earth,
whithersoever our priests are scattered, for they send to Jerusalem the ancient names of
their parents in writing, as well as those of their remoter ancestors, and signify who are
the witnesses also." [Research Note:
Asenath: Bible | Jewish Women's Archive definitely
appears to be an absolute fictional novel. In Volume 02 Journal of Discourses, page 269,
Brigham Young notes: "The Book of Mormon came to Ephraim, for Joseph Smith was a
pure Ephraimite, and the Book of Mormon was revealed to him, and while he lived he
made it his business to search for those who believed the Gospel." Joseph Smith, Jr.,
as a direct descendant of the ancient Joseph in Egypt, and according to the patriarchal
law of the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God; it would have been contrary
to family standards to marry out of the pure descendants of the House of Abraham. This
clearly suggests that when Pharaoh honored Joseph. by giving him as a wife, Asenath,
"the daughter of Potiphera, priest from the city of On"; she was a relative of Abraham.
Asenath: Midrash and Aggadah | Jewish Women's Archive addresses this conundrum.
Accordingly, Ephraim and Manasseh are worthy descendents, who continue Jacob's way.

"But if any war falls out, such as have fallen out a great many of them already, . . .
those priests that survive them compose new tables of genealogy out of the old records,
and examine the circumstances of the women that remain, for still they do not admit
of those that have been captives, as suspecting that they had conversation with some
foreigners. But what is the strongest argument of our exact management in this matter
is what I am now going to say, that we have the names of our (Aaronic) high priests
from father to son set down in our records for the interval of two thousand years, and
if any of these have been transgressors of these rules, they are prohibited to present
themselves at the altar, or to be partakers of any other of our purifications, and this
is justly, or rather necessarily done, because every one is not permitted of his own
accord to be a writer, nor is there any disagreement in what is written, they being
only prophets that have written the original and earliest accounts of things as they
learned them of God himself by inspiration, and others have written what happened
in their own times, and that in a very distinct manner also. . . . It is true, our history
hath been written since
Artaxerxes very particularly, but hath not been esteemed
of the like authority with the former by our forefathers, because there hath not been
an exact succession of prophets since that time; and how firmly we have given credit
to these books of our own nation is evident by what we do, for during so many ages
as have already passed, no one has been so bold as either to add any thing to them,
to take any thing from them, or to make any change in them; but it is become natural
to all Jews immediately, and from their very birth, to esteem these books to contain
Divine doctrines, and to persist in them, and if occasion be willingly to die for them.
For it is no new thing for our captives, many of them in number, and frequently in time,
to be seen to endure racks and deaths of all kinds upon the theatres, that they may
not be obliged to say one word against our laws and the records that contain them,
whereas there are none at all among the Greeks who would undergo the least harm
on that account, no, nor in case all the writings that are among them were to be
destroyed, for they take them to be such discourses as are framed agreeably to the
inclinations of those that write them; and they have justly the same opinion of the
ancient writers, since they see some of the present generation bold enough to write
about such affairs, wherein they were not present, nor had concern enough to inform
themselves about them from those that knew them, examples of which may be had
in this late war of ours, where some persons have written histories, and published
them, without having been in the places concerned, or having been near them
when the actions were done; but these men put a few things together by hearsay,
and insolently abuse the world, and call these writings by the name of Histories. . . .

I shall begin with the writings of the Egyptians; not indeed of those that have written
in the Egyptian language, which it is impossible for me to do. But Manetho was a man
who by birth an Egyptian, yet had he made himself master of the Greek learning,
as is very evident, for he wrote the history of his own country in the Greek tongue,
by translating it, as he saith himself, out of their sacred records; he also finds great
fault with Herodotus for his ignorance and false relations of Egyptian affairs. Now
this Manetho, in the second book of his Egyptian History, writes concerning us (Jews)
in the following manner. I will set down his very words, as if I were to bring the very
man himself into a court for a witness. . . . This whole nation was styled HYCSOS,
that is, Shepherd-kings: for the first syllable HYC, according to the sacred dialect,
denotes a king, as is SOS a shepherd; . . . in another copy it is said that this word
does not denote Kings, but on the contrary, denotes Captive Shepherds, . . . they built
a city in that country which is now called Judea, and that large enough to contain
this great number of men, (their whole families and effects, not fewer in number than
two hundred and forty thousand), and called it Jerusalem. (9) Now Manetho, in another
book of his, says, "That this nation thus called Shepherds, were also called Captives,
in their sacred books." And this account of his is the truth, for feeding of sheep was
the employment of our forefathers in the most ancient ages (10) and as they led such
a wandering life in feeding sheep, they were called Shepherds. Nor was it without
reason that they were called Captives by the Egyptians, since one of our ancestors,
Joseph, told the king of Egypt that he was a captive, and afterward sent for his brethren
into Egypt by the king's permission. But as for these matters, I shall make a more exact
inquiry about them elsewhere. [Research Note: Abel, one of the sons of Adam and Eve,
is recorded as a
keeper of sheep. The Contents of the Plates of Brass further validates
a copy of the Law, or the Five Books of Moses, was historically preserved by the Jews.
What Are the Five Books of Moses? - Chabad.org: the
Torah, the foundation of Judaism.
The Book of Mormon mentions the history of the Jews, further confirming the words
of Flavius Josephus, including specifically the prophet Lehi genealogy, to circa 600 B. C.;
indicating from this primary source, that Lehi descended from Joseph's son Manasseh.

the whole faith of the world, from that time down to the present (now to the 21st Century),

Marriage:

D&C 132: 38  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]
[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.

to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
[Research Note:
RootsTech • FamilySearch was presented 29 Feb 2024 - 02 Mar 2024; it

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

027:   AMRAM (the son of KOHATH)

Family of Amram:
Amram

Marriage:

Amram took him Jochebed his father's sister to wife.
Jochebed: Midrash and Aggadah | Jewish Women's Archive

D&C 132: 38
  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]
[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we
carefully listen to Andrea Bocelli - Angels We Have Heard On High - YouTube™.
Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.

Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."

Who are the Kohanim: The Story of the Jewish Priests - Breaking Matzo

C.  In the days of Herod, the King of Judaea, a certain priest
     named Zacharias, of the course of Abia, had a wife named
     Elisabeth, who was of the daughters of Aaron.  They were the
     parents of a special  son, known as 
John the Baptist.  Zacharias,
    
according to the custom of the priest’s office, burnt incense when
     he went into the temple of the Lord.   The course of
Abia, descended
     from
Abijah or Abiah, meaning "My father is Yahweh", in Hebrew.

     Abijah was the name of the head of the eighth of the twenty-four courses,
     a descendant of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, into which King David had
     divided the priests, living in his day. 
Later, in Jerusalem, there was
     at the Temple Mount, the
Avtinus
Chamber Room, where incense was
     compounded for use in the offerings upon the Golden Altar.

     Beth Ab was the name for the Father's House, the Temple at Jerusalem.
     This holy chamber [Av (father) + tinus; Ab is a variant of Av, part of Aramaic
     abba, father], was named after the Jewish aristocratic
Avtinus
family,
     merchants and spice makers.  According to The Babylonian Talmud, [
Talmud]
     Vol. 12, Seder Mo'ed, (Vol. IV), Shekalim, Chapter V, page 19:
     the House of Abtinas [was] over the preparing of the frankincense.

     The
wise men from the east who came into the house where Jesus Christ
     lived as a young child (
St. Matthew, 2:1-11), saw Him with Mary his mother,
     and fell down, and worshipped Him: and when they had opened their treasures,
     they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.  Gold was sent
     annually to the Temple at Jerusalem, from communal contributions, suggesting
     the
wise men
from the east came as legal and lawful representatives from Syria,
     Arabia, India or beyond.  The presentation of the gift of frankincense, used as part
     of the exclusive Jewish priesthood Temple rite of sacrifice, at Jerusalem, was a
     symbolic recognition of the holy priesthood authority of Jesus Christ, as Lord
     and Royal Master, even as a little child.

    
The sayings of Jesus Christ concerning the destruction of the House of the Lord,
     were known within the Abtinas family, as noted by statements of their posterity,
     recorded in
The Babylonian Talmud.  [See also: the Holy Temple Revisited, (1993)].
     The righteous tannaim were living libraries of knowledge, having memorized
     tannaitic statements.  They were wells of living water, as in the Temple Teni priests,
     even baskets full of books, centered in the supreme sacrifice of the Chosen One of
     Israel, the Messiah Jesus Christ.  It is mentioned in The Babylonian Talmud, Vol. 6,
     Seder Nashim, (Vol. II), Kethuboth, Chapter XIII, pages 681-682, that "the house
     of Abtinas" (a priestly family) [who were in charge] of the preparation of the
     incense, received their wages from the Temple funds.

    
The Babylonian Talmud, Vol. 11, Seder Mo'ed, (Vol. III), Yoma, Chapter III,
     pages 176-178, mentions "They of the House of Abtinas" would not teach
     anything about the preparation of the incense, of which they were expert.
     Their smoke ascended [as straight] as a stick.  When the Sages asked why
     they, the House of Abtinas, would not teach their art, the reply was "They
     knew in our father's house that this House is going to be destroyed and
     they said: Perhaps an unworthy man will learn [this art] and will serve an
     idol therewith. --- And for the following reason was their memory kept in
     honour: Never did a bride of their house go forth perfumed, and when they
     married a woman from elsewhere they expressly forbade her to do so lest
     people say: From [the preparation of] the incense they are perfuming
     themselves.  [They did so] to fulfill the command: 'Ye shall be clear
     before
the Lord and before Israel.' "

028:   MOSES (the son of AMRAM)

Family of Moses:
Moses:
Chart / Moses |

Marriages:
Exodus 2: 18-22  Zipporah, a daughter of Reuel [Jethro],
Exodus 18: 1  High Priest of Midian.  Numbers 12: 1 And Miriam
and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman
whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
D&C 132: 1 - "Verily, thus saith the Lord unto you my servant Joseph, that inasmuch
as you have inquired of my hand to know and understand wherein I, the Lord,
justified my servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as also Moses, David and Solomon,
my servants, as touching the principle and doctrine of their having many wives and
concubines--- . . .." Thus it is self evident that Biblical Family Records are incomplete,
especially in the case of the multitude of wives and concubines of King Solomon;
since the Old Testament records primarily are concentrated on "firstborn" posterity.
Jehovah declares Moses did none other things than that which he was commanded,
which indicates Jesus Christ approves the increase of a righteous man's posterity;
and Moses has entered into his exaltation, and sits upon his throne, as a royal God.


D&C 132: 38  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]
[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

Moses wrote the Book of Moses, part of the Pearl of Great Price.
Moses obtained two sets of tablets (tables of stone), written upon
by JEHOVAH (Jesus Christ): the first being the laws of His
Holy
Order (and the ordinances thereof); the second tables being the
set of lesser laws, known as the Ten Commandments.  Jesus Christ
wrote records in heaven, as well as upon earth, showing by His wise
example, the way back to the presence of His Father: the great Eloheim.

Moses received the Melchizedek Priesthood under the hand of his
father-in-law Jethro. 
D&C 84: 6-14  And Jethro received it under
the hand of Caleb; And Caleb received it under the hand of Elihu;
And Elihu under the hand of Jeremy; And Jeremy under the hand
of Gad; And Gad under the hand of Esaias; And Esaias received it
under the hand of God. 
JST Genesis 14: 25-40  And this Melchizedek,
having thus established righteousness, was called the King of Heaven;
a God Title, by his people, or, in other words, the King of Peace; a God.
Esaias also lived in the days of Abraham, and was blessed of him--
Which Abraham [also] received the priesthood from Melchizedek,
who was 013: The great High Priest Shem, the son of Noah.

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we
carefully listen to Andrea Bocelli - Angels We Have Heard On High - YouTube™.
Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
[Research Note:
RootsTech • FamilySearch was presented 29 Feb 2024 - 02 Mar 2024; it

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

Chronology - JewishEncyclopedia.com
Chronology of the Bible: The chronology of the Bible is an elaborate system
of lifespans, 'generations', and other means by which the Masoretic Hebrew
Bible (the text of the Bible most commonly in use today) measures the passage
of events from the creation to . . . (the year of the re-dedication of the Second
Temple). . . . The passage of time is measured initially by adding the ages of
the Patriarchs at the birth of their firstborn sons, later through express statements,
and later still by the synchronized reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah. Later,
The Great Order of the World, or
Seder Olam Rabbah, detailed all the dates of
biblical events from creation to
Alexander the Great's conquest of Persia. Thus,
Traditional Jewish Chronology has long preserved a record of dates and time
sequences of important historical events related to the Jewish nation. Josephus
painstakingly listed the complete panoply of Jewish high priests who served
during the
Second Temple period and which, by comparison of his dates when
each man officiated as high priest, can be used as a time indicator to determine
the span of time in which the Second Temple had its existence. In Early Jewish
Writings,
Flavius Josephus Against Apion. Book I, expounds upon the historical
accuracy and applications of official Ancient handed down record compilations.

. . . "But now as to our forefathers, that they took no less care about writing such
records, (for I will not say they took greater care than the others I spoke of), and
that they committed that matter to their (Aaronic) high priests and to their prophets,
(Ancient Patriarchal High Priests), and that these records have been written all
along down to our own times with the utmost accuracy, nay, if it be not too bold
for me to say it, our history will be so written hereafter, - I shall endeavor briefly
to inform you. 7. For our forefathers did not only appoint the best of these (Aaronic)
priests, and those that attended upon the Divine worship, for that design from
the beginning, (or, from the time of Adam and Eve), but made provision that the
stock of the (Aaronic) priests should continue unmixed and pure; for he who is
partaker of the priesthood must propagate of a wife of the same nation, without
having any regard to money, or any other dignities, but he is to make a scrutiny,
and take his wife's genealogy  from the ancient (Bible) tables, and procure many
witnesses to it. (7) Of this accuracy of the Jews before and in our Savior's time, in
carefully preserving their genealogies all along, particularly those of the priests,
see Josephus's Life, sect. 1. This accuracy seems to have ended at the destruction

Continuing, "And this is our practice not only in Judea, but wheresoever any body of men
of our nation do live, and even there an exact catalogue of our priests' marriages is kept,
I mean at Egypt and at Babylon, or in any other place of the rest of the habitable earth,
whithersoever our priests are scattered, for they send to Jerusalem the ancient names of
their parents in writing, as well as those of their remoter ancestors, and signify who are
the witnesses also." [Research Note:
Asenath: Bible | Jewish Women's Archive definitely
appears to be an absolute fictional novel. In Volume 02 Journal of Discourses, page 269,
Brigham Young notes: "The Book of Mormon came to Ephraim, for Joseph Smith was a
pure Ephraimite, and the Book of Mormon was revealed to him, and while he lived he
made it his business to search for those who believed the Gospel." Joseph Smith, Jr.,
as a direct descendant of the ancient Joseph in Egypt, and according to the patriarchal
law of the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God; it would have been contrary
to family standards to marry out of the pure descendants of the House of Abraham. This
clearly suggests that when Pharaoh honored Joseph. by giving him as a wife, Asenath,
"the daughter of Potiphera, priest from the city of On"; she was a relative of Abraham.
Asenath: Midrash and Aggadah | Jewish Women's Archive addresses this conundrum.
Accordingly, Ephraim and Manasseh are worthy descendents, who continue Jacob's way.

"But if any war falls out, such as have fallen out a great many of them already, . . .
those priests that survive them compose new tables of genealogy out of the old records,
and examine the circumstances of the women that remain, for still they do not admit
of those that have been captives, as suspecting that they had conversation with some
foreigners. But what is the strongest argument of our exact management in this matter
is what I am now going to say, that we have the names of our (Aaronic) high priests
from father to son set down in our records for the interval of two thousand years, and
if any of these have been transgressors of these rules, they are prohibited to present
themselves at the altar, or to be partakers of any other of our purifications, and this
is justly, or rather necessarily done, because every one is not permitted of his own
accord to be a writer, nor is there any disagreement in what is written, they being
only prophets that have written the original and earliest accounts of things as they
learned them of God himself by inspiration, and others have written what happened
in their own times, and that in a very distinct manner also. . . . It is true, our history
hath been written since
Artaxerxes very particularly, but hath not been esteemed
of the like authority with the former by our forefathers, because there hath not been
an exact succession of prophets since that time; and how firmly we have given credit
to these books of our own nation is evident by what we do, for during so many ages
as have already passed, no one has been so bold as either to add any thing to them,
to take any thing from them, or to make any change in them; but it is become natural
to all Jews immediately, and from their very birth, to esteem these books to contain
Divine doctrines, and to persist in them, and if occasion be willingly to die for them.
For it is no new thing for our captives, many of them in number, and frequently in time,
to be seen to endure racks and deaths of all kinds upon the theatres, that they may
not be obliged to say one word against our laws and the records that contain them,
whereas there are none at all among the Greeks who would undergo the least harm
on that account, no, nor in case all the writings that are among them were to be
destroyed, for they take them to be such discourses as are framed agreeably to the
inclinations of those that write them; and they have justly the same opinion of the
ancient writers, since they see some of the present generation bold enough to write
about such affairs, wherein they were not present, nor had concern enough to inform
themselves about them from those that knew them, examples of which may be had
in this late war of ours, where some persons have written histories, and published
them, without having been in the places concerned, or having been near them
when the actions were done; but these men put a few things together by hearsay,
and insolently abuse the world, and call these writings by the name of Histories. . . .

I shall begin with the writings of the Egyptians; not indeed of those that have written
in the Egyptian language, which it is impossible for me to do. But Manetho was a man
who by birth an Egyptian, yet had he made himself master of the Greek learning,
as is very evident, for he wrote the history of his own country in the Greek tongue,
by translating it, as he saith himself, out of their sacred records; he also finds great
fault with Herodotus for his ignorance and false relations of Egyptian affairs. Now
this Manetho, in the second book of his Egyptian History, writes concerning us (Jews)
in the following manner. I will set down his very words, as if I were to bring the very
man himself into a court for a witness. . . . This whole nation was styled HYCSOS,
that is, Shepherd-kings: for the first syllable HYC, according to the sacred dialect,
denotes a king, as is SOS a shepherd; . . . in another copy it is said that this word
does not denote Kings, but on the contrary, denotes Captive Shepherds, . . . they built
a city in that country which is now called Judea, and that large enough to contain
this great number of men, (their whole families and effects, not fewer in number than
two hundred and forty thousand), and called it Jerusalem. (9) Now Manetho, in another
book of his, says, "That this nation thus called Shepherds, were also called Captives,
in their sacred books." And this account of his is the truth, for feeding of sheep was
the employment of our forefathers in the most ancient ages (10) and as they led such
a wandering life in feeding sheep, they were called Shepherds. Nor was it without
reason that they were called Captives by the Egyptians, since one of our ancestors,
Joseph, told the king of Egypt that he was a captive, and afterward sent for his brethren
into Egypt by the king's permission. But as for these matters, I shall make a more exact
inquiry about them elsewhere. [Research Note: Abel, one of the sons of Adam and Eve,
is recorded as a
keeper of sheep. The Contents of the Plates of Brass further validates
a copy of the Law, or the Five Books of Moses, was historically preserved by the Jews.

The Book of Mormon mentions the history of the Jews, further confirming the words
of Flavius Josephus, including specifically the prophet Lehi genealogy, to circa 600 B. C.;
indicating from this primary source, that Lehi descended from Joseph's son Manasseh.

Egyptian Links in Strabo on the Land of the Jews (22 ce). (AD 22)
Strabo
, living from 63/64 BC to circa AD 24, was a Greek historian,
geographer and philosopher.
  Looking at Jerusalem from a "gentile"
perspective, he says:


These districts (of Jerusalem and Joppa) lie towards the north; they
are inhabited generally, and each place in particular, by mixed tribes
of Egyptians, Arabians, and Phoenicians.  Of this description are the
inhabitants of Galilee, of the plain of Jericho, and of the territories
of Philadelphia and Samaria, surnamed Sebaste by Herod; but though
there is such a mixture of inhabitants, the report most credited, among
many things believed respecting the temple and the inhabitants of
Jerusalem, is that the Egyptians were the ancestors of the present Jews.
[
Paulus or Paullus; (Saul of Tarsus), circa 5 BC to circa 67 AD, a Hellenistic
Jew, is a genealogical primary source validation of Strabo's report, when
Paul himself, is confused in Jerusalem as being of the race of Egyptians.
]
An Egyptian priest named Moses, who possessed a portion of the country
called Lower Egypt, being dissatisfied with the established institutions
there, left it and came to Judea with a large body of people who worshiped
the Divinity.

Ancient Semitic Snake Spells Deciphered in Egyptian Pyramid. [
History News Network]
Phoenicia: Byblos Priests Write Spells to Protect Pharaoh's Mummy
"The passages, inscribed on the subterranean walls of the pyramid of King Unas
at Saqqara, reveal that the Egyptians enlisted the magical assistance of Semitic
Canaanites from the ancient city of Byblos; [Egyptians imported timber and resin for
building and mummification (cedar sawdust for mummification and the resin, known
as Cedria, for embalming.)]  "This is a discovery of utmost importance," Bar-Asher said.
"Almost all the words found [in these texts] are also found in the Bible."  "It's not as
different from biblical Hebrew as some people might have expected," Yeshiva University's
Steiner added.  "A lot of the characteristics of Hebrew that we know from the Bible are
already present in these texts."  Continuing, [The language of the newly deciphered spells
is so similar to biblical Hebrew, in fact, that Steiner was able to solve a long-standing
dispute over the meaning of the word "pot."  Isaiah 3:17 reads, in regard to the daughters
of Zion, "the Lord will uncover their pot."  By the Middle Ages there was already a dispute
among biblical scholars over whether the word referred to the females' genitalia or to a
part of their heads, Steiner said in his lecture.  But the use of this rare word in one of
the Canaanite spells appears to settle the question.  "From this text it is now clear
the Hebrew term used  by
Isaiah refers to the female genitalia,"
Bar-Asher, of the Hebrew University, said.]


He [Moses] declared and taught that the Egyptians and Africans entertained
erroneous sentiments, in representing, the Divinity under the likeness
of wild beasts and cattle of the field; that the Greeks also were error
in making images of their gods after the human form. For God, said he,
may be this one thing which encompasses us all, land and sea, which we
call heaven, or the universe, or the nature of things.  Who, then, of any
understanding would venture to form an image of this Deity, resembling
anything with which we are conversant?  On the contrary, we ought not
to carve any images, but to set apart some sacred ground as a shrine
worthy of the Deity, and to worship Him without any similitude.  He taught
that those who made fortunate dreams were to be permitted to sleep in the
temple, where they might dream both for themselves and others; that those
who practiced temperance and justice, and none else, might expect good,
or some gift or sign from the God, from time to time.  By such doctrine
Moses persuaded a large body of right-minded persons to accompany
him to the place where Jerusalem now stands.  He easily obtained possession
of it as the spot was not such as to excite jealousy, nor for which there could
be any fierce contention; for it is rocky, and, although well supplied with water,
it is surrounded by a barren and waterless territory.  The space within the city is
60 stadia in circumference, with rock underneath the surface.  Instead of arms,
he taught that their defense was in their sacred things and the Divinity, for whom
he was desirous of finding a settled place, promising to the people to deliver
such a kind of worship and religion as should not burden those who adopted
it with great expense, nor molest them with so-called divine possessions, nor
other absurd practices. Moses thus obtained their good opinion, and established
no ordinary kind of government.  All the nations around willingly united themselves
to him, allured by his discourses and promises.  [In the time of Joshua, Jerusalem
was in territory allocated to the tribe of Benjamin (
Joshua 18:28) but it continued
to be under the independent control of the Jebusites until it was conquered by David
and made into the capital of the united Kingdom of Israel (circa 1000 BC).  Recent
excavations of a large stone structure are interpreted by some archaeologists
as lending credence to the biblical narrative.]

[The Bible states that “Moses the servant of the Lord died” and was buried by the Lord
(Deuteronomy 34:5-6).  But from the evidence of Alma 45, cited above, there seems to
have been a tradition that
he had been translated or taken away.  This may be suggested
in D&C 84:25, where we read that the Lord “took Moses out of their midst.” Only one text
known in Joseph Smith’s day suggested that Moses had not died.  It is found in Josephus,
Antiquities of the Jews 4.8.48.  Josephus is not the only Jewish source for the translation
of Moses.  The Babylonian Talmud (Sotah 13b) indicates that some said Moses had never
died but was alive and serving on high -- an idea repeated in other texts such as Midrash
ha-Gadol, Zot habberakhah 4:5, Sifre to Deuteronomy 357, Memar Marqah, and Midrash
Leqah Tob.  The medieval Zohar reflects the same tradition.]  His successors continued
for some time to observe the same conduct, doing justly, and worshipping God with
sincerity.  Afterwards superstitious persons were appointed to the priesthood, and then
tyrants.  From superstition arose abstinence from flesh, from the eating of which it is now
the custom to refrain, circumcision, cliterodectomy, and other practices which the people
observe.  The tyrannical government produced robbery; for the rebels plundered both their
own and the neighboring countries.  Those also who shared in the government seized upon
the property of others, and ravaged a large part of Syria and of Phoenicia.  Respect,
however, was paid to the Acropolis [Zion, or the Temple Mount in Jerusalem]; it was
not abhorred as the seat of tyranny, but honoured and venerated as a temple. . . .
Such was Moses and his successors; their beginning was good, but they degenerated.

This is also further reinforced by the Petition to
Authorize Elephantine Temple
Reconstruction.  Mentioned: Darius II, Persian emperor from 425/4 to 405/4 BC,
"To our lord, Bagohi, governor of Yehud,"
(1)  Bagohi is one of the names in the lists of Judahites who returned
from Babylon (The Return To Zion, see, e.g., Ezra 2:2; Neh 7:7).  In the
Bible the name is spelled "Bigvai," or in Greek "Bagoas" (e.g., Judith 12:11).
Jews returned to the Land of Israel from the Babylonian exile following
the decree by the Persian King Cyrus, the conqueror of the Babylonian
empire in 538 BC, also known as Cyrus's Declaration.

(2)  The name Yehud was used for Judah while it was a Persian province.
[Yebamoth: (יבמות, "Levirate marriage"); (or Yebamot or Yevamot), referring
to the mandated marriage of a widow to her brother-in-law, deals with the
Jewish law of levirate marriage (Deut. 25:5-10) and other topics, such as the
status of minors. It consists of 16 chapters.] . . . Now, our ancestors built this
temple in the fortress of Yeb in the days of the kingdom of Egypt; and when
Cambyses II came to Egypt he found it (already) constructed.  Cambyses invaded
Egypt in 525 BC.  "According to Herodotus (484-425 B.C.), Cambyses, the son of
Cyrus the Great, sent 50,000 soldiers from Thebes to attack the Oasis of Siwa
and destroy the oracle at the Temple of Amun after the priests there refused
to legitimize his claim to Egypt."  . . . Now, our ancestors built this temple in
the fortress of Yeb in the days of the kingdom of Egypt; and when Cambyses
came to Egypt he found it (already) constructed.  That means that much before
525 BC, there was an affluent Hebrew community, that had both military and
government status, dealing in trade relations that could amass sufficient wealth
to build a local temple to the true god [Yahu is one form of the divine name of
Yahweh, the Israelite god (also: Yo and Yah, as in the names "Yonatan" [1 Sam 14:1]
and "Hodiyah" [1 Chron 4:19]).].  . . . "they entered the temple and burned it to
the ground.  They smashed the stone pillars that were there.  They demolished
five great gateways constructed of hewn blocks of stone which were in the temple;
but their doors (are still standing), and the hinges of those doors are made of bronze.
And the roof of cedar in its entirety, with the . . . and whatever else was there, were
all burned with fire.  As for the basins of gold and silver and other articles that were
in the temple, they carried all of them off and took them as personal possessions."

Judean Auxiliaries in Egypt's War Against Kush | Dan'el Kahn - Academia.edu (pdf)
"During the Twenty-Sixth Dynasty, mercenaries and foreign soldiers served
as combatants in the Egyptian army.  They were first attested during the reign
of Psammetichus I and their presence increased constantly.  They came from
mainland Greece, the Aegean Islands, Caria, Lydia, Libya, Kush, Phoenicia,
Aram, Israel, and Judah.  They are mentioned on private stelae, and in
administrative and legal papyri, biblical books, classical sources, Egyptian
and Assyrian royal inscriptions, and their presence is also demonstrated
by archaeological finds." 
The Semitic Influence in Ancient Egypt:
"Daphnae was supposed to have been built in the time of the 26th dynasty
in about 664 BC and existed until about 565 BC."
  When King Psammetichus
(ie. Psamtik II) came to Elephantine, this was written by those who sailed
with Psammetichus the son of Theocles, and they came beyond Kerkis
as far as the river permits.  Those who spoke foreign tongues
(Greek and Carians who also scratched their names on the monument) were
led by Potasimto, the Egyptians by Amasis.   Later, in 591 BC, during the fourth
year of his reign, Psamtik II launched an expedition into Palestine "to foment a
general Levantine revolt against the Babylonians" that involved, among other,
Zedekiah of the Kingdom of Judah.  
"The treaty's provision dealt with an actual
situation.  It casts additional light on the story of martyrdom as told in the Bible:
the story of mutilated prisoners, slaughtered children, and deportations; and the
story of these few who escaped from the horrors of torture, of their flight to Egypt,
and of the long arm that reached out for the refugees into the land of their asylum.

029:   GERSHOM (the son of MOSES)

Family of Gershom:
Gershom

Marriage:

D&C 132: 38  David also received many wives and concubines, and also Solomon
and Moses my servants, as also many others of my servants, from the
beginning
of
Creation
until this time; and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me. [Research Note: This reference from God specifically implies that
Adam, who was at the beginning of Creation, received many wives and concubines,
which would have been given to Adam, by Eve; from some of their female posterity.
This would be consistent with Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ; she also being a spirit
daughter of God, the Eternal Father;
betrothed to God Ahman, by Angel Gabriel (Noah).
This would have directly involved the full consent of
Heavenly Mother; as the only means
provided, whereby she could obtain a future return to an eternal association with all of her
righteous and glorified mortal children. Prophets have taught that our immortal, celestial,
heavenly parents work together in a united manner, for the total comprehensive salvation
of the human family; brought to fulfillment through the blood Atonement of Jesus Christ.]
[Research Note: Plural Marriage "was believed in and practiced by the ancients"; noted
Brigham Young: Beneficial Effects of Polygamy (Journal of Discourses). As LDS President,
Brigham Young also stated "that if you desire with all your hearts to obtain the blessings
which Abraham obtained, you will be polygamists at least in your faith, or you will come
short of enjoying the salvation and the glory which Abraham has obtained. This is as true
as that God lives. . . . The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those
who enter into polygamy. Others attain unto a glory and may even be permitted to come
into the presence of the Father and the Son (in the Celestial Earth Kingdom; single, or in
a monogamously Temple sealed marriage), but they cannot (fully) reign as kings in glory,
because they had blessings offered unto them (to have power to save their own posterity),
and they refused to accept them."
The Power to Seal on Earth and in Heaven remained
actively upon the earth until the days of Elijah the Prophet, one of
Messengers with Keys.
Therefore, according to President Brigham Young, Jesus Christ had to have been married
to more than one wife, before he was exalted. Thus, the New Testament does not contain
a complete record of the Saints family relationships. Furthermore, Biblical society clearly
included plural marriage, as it was "believed in and practiced by the ancients",
(as three
years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared,
Enoch, and Methuselah; all just high priests, having the Holy Priesthood, after the Order
of the Son of God, with the residue of his, Adam's righteous posterity, into the green valley
of
Adam-ondi-Ahman); which society continued on through Shem, or Melchizedek, the son
of Noah; to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or Israel; down into the later Christian Gentile era.
This certainly indicates a tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records, when actually
compared mathematically, with the high number of global inhabitants, in pre-flood times.
Section 138, Vision of the Redemption of the Dead (Doctrine and Covenants 138): "Among
the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast congregation of the righteous
were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all, And our glorious Mother Eve,
with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the (past Old Testament) ages
and worshiped the true and living God." Adam, or Michael, as the Holy Patriarchal Head
of the Human Family, by Right, has been delegated to hold the keys of the resurrection
of the dead, from Jesus Christ, or Jehovah; having previously passed through that order,
and continuously assists in bringing to pass the crowning of his posterity with immortality,
and eternal lives, under the direction of Son Ahman, the Messiah, Lord of Lords, and King
of Kings. President Joseph F. Smith validates tremendous disparity in surviving Biblical
records,: "I saw the hosts of the dead, both small and great." -- "And there were gathered
together in one place an innumerable company of the spirits of the just who had been
faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality;" "They were assembled
awaiting the advent of the Son of God into the spirit world, to declare their redemption
from the bands of death." (Thus, this would have been an innumerable company of spirits
having lived in Old Testament times, as "Their sleeping dust was to be restored unto its
perfect frame . . .") "While this vast multitude waited and conversed, rejoicing in the hour
of their deliverance from the chains of death, the Son of God appeared, declaring liberty
to the captives who had been faithful," Also, this multitude did not include all the wicked.
Specific mention is made of seeing and critically identifying additional Old Testament
personalities: Abel, the first martyr; Seth, one of the mighty ones; Noah, of the flood era;
Shem, the great high priest (Melchizedek); Abraham, the father of the faithful; Isaac,
Jacob; Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah;
Ezekiel;
Daniel; Elias, who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration; and the prophet Malachi;
"All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Nephites and testified
of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast assembly"; waiting for deliverance.
Furthermore, Jesus Christ mentions in
Matthew 19–23, when asked why Moses permitted
divorce; Jesus Christ declared: "Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered
you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
Isaiah 3 & 4 notes Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the coming
millennial day, by the restoration of polygamy: "And in that day, seven women shall
take hold of one man, saying: We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach"; re: 2 Nephi Chapter 14, as
mentioned in the Book of Mormon;
indicating modern day Zion is yet filthy, beforehand.
Since there was no divorce in the beginning, under the ancient patriarchal priesthood,
the unity of family associations would have greatly expanded the number of the children
living upon the earth, down to the time of the period of the administration of prophet Elijah.
Therefore, it is priesthood unrighteous dominion, in the cancellation of Temple Sealings,
or civil divorces, and not genetic DNA, that promotes extreme mental cruelty within lives
of separated posterity; that is the origination of adultery, fornication; all perverted forms
of biological disorientation of the children; a diminished

The Priesthood was first given to Adam. He obtained the First Presidency and held
the Keys of it. He obtained it in the creation before the world was formed, and they
remained on the earth until the Old Testament times of Elijah the Prophet; the last
of those prophets to hold the Keys of the Sealing Power of the Melchizedek Priesthood.
All the ancient prophets of the Old Testament times had the Melchizedek Priesthood.
The Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood was formerly called the High Priesthood of
the Holy Order of God, or the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God. It is
the Church of the Firstborn, or glorified Patriarchal Priesthood celestial heir members.
The sealed family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
Old Testament Biblical Records include statements concerning High Priests presiding
in, or holding
Priesthood Keys in the Melchizedek Priesthood, as well as Bishops, who
hold the mighty sacred keys over
The Aaronic Priesthood: The Ministering of Angels.
Priesthood of Aaron restoration was performed by John the Baptist. The
testimony of
Jesus Christ was: This is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before
thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. For I say unto you, Among those
that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he
that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. And all the people that heard
him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of dear John.
Thus, we
carefully listen to Andrea Bocelli - Angels We Have Heard On High - YouTube™.
Also: Listen to the Voice of Jesus Christ, your Lord, your God, and your Redeemer, whose
word is quick and powerful. And also John the son of Zacharias, which Zacharias he (Elias,
to whom I have committed the keys of bringing to pass the restoration of all things spoken
by the mouth of all the holy prophets since the world began, concerning the last days),
visited and gave promise that he should have a son, and his name should be John,
and he should be filled with the spirit of Elias; Which John I have have sent unto you,
my servants, Joseph Smith, Jun., and Oliver Cowdery, to ordain you unto the first priest-
hood, which you have received, that you might be called and ordained even as Aaron.

What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
[Research Note:
RootsTech • FamilySearch was presented 29 Feb 2024 - 02 Mar 2024; it

and genealogy." Class Schedule Preview shows 27 DNA results. A Search of RootsTech

The Science of Molecular Genealogy
suggests: "Molecular science can help genealogists uncover previously unknown family
relationships, verify or refute claims to ancestry, and shed light on questions that have
puzzled family historians for years." There are however, scientific limitations involved,
when considering Latter-day Saint, or Christian belief systems, based upon Bible text;
showing The Internal Consistency and Historical Reliability of the Biblical Genealogies.
Scott Ray Woodward (biologist)] extracted and typed DNA going back millions of years.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His
EASTER resurrection, validated by LDS (D&C 138),
suggest serious reconsiderations on the actual value of DNA studies, extrapolated back
in temporal time. Foremost of all, What are resurrected bodies like?, declares they are
physical; and thus, no physical bodies upon the earth for molecular science to evaluate.
Moroni, who lived in the fifth century AD, additionally is a physically resurrected being.
So what is left of the ancient molecular past, to scientifically evaluate, are remains from
wicked societies, and social environments, destined for a future Telestial or Terrestrial
eternal existence. All these societies, except for Noah and his family relationships, had
disruptive global flood experiences, degrading and altering their molecular body purity
(as well as a stated corruption of all flesh, intermingled between animals and humans).
Additionally, all spirit is matter, but it is more refined and pure, such that it is infinitely
incapable of being measured by modern technological instruments; nor by DNA data.
God of course knows all of His spirit children, and knows from the beginnings of their
spiritual birth in heaven; thus He knows the past, present and future of the Universe,
knowing beforehand, the beginnings and ends of all the works of His own Creations.

In conclusion then, What Truths Do 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi Teach Us about Jesus Christ?
The Book of Mormon is the greatest primary witness on the face of the earth to validate
the authenticity of the Ancient Biblical Record, with Moroni as the greatest key witness.
The Prophet Moroni testifies emphatically that the Theory of Evolution is so completely
false, as noted in Line upon Line: Moroni 10:3–5. Behold, I would exhort you, that when
ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would
remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation
of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your
hearts. . . . And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. . . .
The key element of this witness testimony concerning the real mortal existence of Adam,
and the factual evidence of the creation of the earth, and all the subsequent related things
thereto, is clearly stated within The Book of Ether. Moroni specifically abridged the record
of the Jaredites. Therefore, from a professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
he is an intimate, personally involved, eye-witness to this account of those twenty and four
plates which were found by the people of Limhi, which is called the Book of Ether. Moroni
mentions: "And as I suppose that the first part of this record, which speaks concerning the
creation of the world, and also of Adam, and an account from that time even to the great
tower, and whatsoever things transpired among the children of men until that time, is had
among the Jews-- Therefore I do not write those things which transpired from the days of
Adam until that time; but they are had upon the plates; and whoso findeth them, the same
will have power that he may get the full account" (as they are written in Adamic language).
Additionally
Legal Records, the Brass Plates, held in the originating possession of Laban,
contained not only the Jewish scriptures, but also Lehi's own genealogy back to Joseph
in Egypt. From a dispassionate, professional genealogical research specialist standpoint,
this directly relates to the genealogical Truths taught in 1 Nephi and 2 Nephi, Moroni had
access to the Brass Plates of Laban and knew that those records came forth out of the City
of Jerusalem; and were handed down intact by the seed of originating Nephite father Lehi.
Nevertheless, the very false theory, or secular doctrine of Evolution is currently, and very
openly, and proudly; blatantly expounded upon, by open-minded "scientific" leadership,
from the sacred halls of learning, at
Brigham Young University. Yet, Nephi, son of Lehi,
had a vision of great significance, recorded in
1 Nephi 13:20–42: Plain and Precious Truths.
In particular, from a genealogical research standpoint, 1 Nephi 13: 23, the Gentiles, or us,
today, had a book, which an angel from the Throne of God in Heaven declared, stating:
Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew (collectively, the ancestry of the Jews).
"The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants
of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel (from Old Testament times);
and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record
like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many;
nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house
of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
Organic Evolution is false.

in existence without accurate record keeping, to determine what has transpired in past
events, or real experiments, to determine what is going on in the present, or knowing
what calculated future outcomes will be. True and perfect science is based upon written
testimony, and the testimony of Jesus Christ is the
