What came through Joseph Smith was beyond Joseph Smith, and it stretched him! In fact, the doctrines that came through that “choice seer” (2 Nephi –7.

“He regarded this translation, or revelation, as part of his calling as prophet, seer and revelator. His charge was to restore the ‘many plain and precious things taken away from the [Bible]’ (1 Nephi ).

His efforts enriched, clarified, and expanded hundreds of biblical verses.”. As Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon in the late s, he learned more than the history of the Lamanites and Nephites.

More than once, the Book of Mormon text indicated that “many plain and precious parts” of the Bible had been lost. 1 In the summer ofjust a few short months after the Book of Mormon was published, Joseph Smith began a new translation of the Bible intended.

[A video was shown in which, after Samuel Smith introduces Oliver Cowdery to Joseph Smith, Joseph tells Oliver that he has been expecting him.

He also tells him how he obtained the plates and that they will translate them “by the gift and power of God.” The two begin translation of the Book of Mormon, with Oliver as scribe to Joseph.

The Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible is not, as some members have presumed, simply a restoration of lost Biblical text or an improvement on the translation of known text.

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf taught, “Sometimes we think of the Restoration of the gospel as something that is complete, already behind us—Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon, he received priesthood keys, the Church was organized.The Book of Mormon also records prophecy that the lost parts of the Bible would be restored.

Indeed, many of the plain and precious things have again been made known through heavenly manifestations to Joseph Smith; through the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price; and through Joseph Smith.
