Prophecy – 1 Nephi 13
40 And the angel spake unto me, saying: These last records, which thou have 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.
41 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; wherefore they both shall be established in one; for there is one God and one Shepherd over all the earth. (1 Nephi 13)
Joseph ignored the precious truths restored when mandating that “all” children must be baptized at age eight—for sins (D&C 68:27), and withheld the Book of Mormon from becoming one with the Bible by setting it aside for new doctrines in the Doctrine and Covenants.
“Joseph seems somewhat detached from the book after its publication. He betrays little if any ‘pride of authorship’.” –Daniel Peterson
