  1. Does anyone know where the original manuscript for this revelation is? Or at least the oldest version that we have?
  2. I believe Manti also does live presentations, though I’m not sure if that has changed recently.
  3. I think this reason it’s stored in the archives of the church is because it contains decently detailed accounts of ordinances. The excerpts I’ve seen contain some detail about the “second anointing” and various wording for other ceremonies like endowments.
  4. There is a book that I'm aware is currently locked/stored in the Church Archives. However from a few comments made on some other boards I'm aware that some copies of this "book" exist outside of the Church. I'm curious if any of you know where I could get a hold of a copy or digital scan of the material? I believe it's usually referenced as the "Book of Anointings of Nauvoo" or variations of that and contains records from January 8 to February 7 of 1846. I know one copy resides in the University of Utah library special collection archives, but I live nowhere near there to get access.
  5. What’s the translation room? Haven’t heard of that. The H of H is assuredly that middle room between the two sealing rooms in the celestial room is the entrance. Elder Talmage said “The central of the three small apartments connected with the Celestial Room—situated therefore between the Sealing Room for the Living and the Sealing Room for the Dead—is of all the smaller apartments within the Temple walls by far the most beautiful... these doors mark the threshold of the inner room or the Holy of Holies of the Temple, and correspond to the inner curtain or veil that shielded from public view the most sacred precincts of Tabernacle and Temple in the earlier dispensations.”
  6. If stake centers used to have them then I’m sure they can improvise for the CoB 😂
  7. Hey! We love our supernatural readings! After all how will we start the faith promoting rumors without them?!
  8. Same. Never been it and probably never will be but it seems important enough not to move or remove. I jokingly told my wife that maybe they’ll expand it to fit more then one guy in there at a time!! Haha
  9. I’ve never been, why is it called that?! 😂
  10. I tried to “sneak around” last time I was there and I couldn’t find the room! Do you know which one it is?!
  11. I sure hope not. I have never had a more spiritual connection with the ordinances and intents of the rituals then my interactions with the live actors. The endowment was original given “live” and the saints should be given at least one place to continue the tradition and the rich symbolism associated. It’s the closest we have to the original given Joseph Smith gave it. I totally understand why they upgraded to live in 99% or all temples however! Brilliant innovation on the Lords/churches part. Edit: maybe they’re updating the Holy of Holies! 😅
  12. I've been seeing a lot of stories like this but I have a hard time believing because I haven't seen any pictures and the only I did see was an clerical error on behalf of CoB.
  13. The key I think to the meaning that this little picture, and other research shows, is that they move the letters back to an original language which in this case was Paleo-hebrew. Then they took the meaning of the letters/hieroglyphs and pushed them together.
  14. I ran across this picture on the internet and did a little more research to confirm that it was at least a little accurate. I have some thoughts on the meaning of this and I've wrote them down but I wonder what you guys think. There are some really incredible symbols to be learned when we breakdown old words into the original language! What do you think?
  15. I appreciate however that they now have a lot more essays. They released I think like 5 on my mission, and they weren't very informational. I learned a lot about our churches history on my mission though by grabbing the JoD off the church libraries shelves, books members would give me, and random anti-pamphlets (not that I believed everything they said, but they did get me to research). Funnily enough I never found anything that shocked me in anyway. I don't know if it's cause my testimony is strong (I honestly don't think that's it though haha) or if I kinda wanted our history to be a little odd. The essays the church is releasing are awesome and I hope pre-missionaries really read them previous to their mission and know the basic references, it really helps in the field.
