Example text

It doesn't restore what was lost from the Bible because that story never was told in the Bible. That's one by itself; it is peculiar. Likewise, the Doctrine and Covenants is for the modern church. In your own time sections have been added to the Doctrine and Covenants from the vision of Joseph F. Smith. But it is the Pearl of Great Price alone to date that restores precious parts that were removed from the scriptures. Now, how do you know that anything has been taken out of the Bible? Well, the genizas are good example of that.

They talk about it in detail. They talk about the wanderings and the scatterings all over the place; of course, the fourteenth chapter of Genesis, but that's before the Tower of Babel. This is the big scattering we are talking about. So again the Book of Mormon is unique there, but this is not what we are talking about. It doesn't restore what was lost from the Bible because that story never was told in the Bible. That's one by itself; it is peculiar. Likewise, the Doctrine and Covenants is for the modern church.

So, many precious things were taken away from the Old Testament as from the New Testament. For example, the Pearl of Great Price is such a clear-cut case. H. Charles who was the principal editor of the Book of Enoch for many years, says that nearly all writers of the New Testament were familiar with it. He discovered that there were no less than 128 quotations in the New Testament from the Book of Enoch. But the world didn't have any Book of Enoch. What had happened to it? It is quoted as a genuine production of Enoch by Jude in the New Testament and as scripture by Barnabas, one of the seven apostolic fathers.
