Nephi appears to Joseph

nephi appears to joseph

QUOTE: “When I first looked upon him I was afraid, but the fear soon left me. He called me by name and said unto me, that he was a messenger sent from the presence of God to me, and that his name was Nephi. That God had a work for me to do…. He said there was a book deposited, written upon gold plates, giving an account of the former inhabitants of this continent, and the source from whence they sprang.” -Joseph Smith History, as published in the Pearl of Great Price, 1851, p. 41. Revised in 1878 by Orson Pratt to be Moroni instead of Nephi. [source]

COMMENTARY: I’d think that if an angel appeared to me and told me his name was Moroni I wouldn’t accidentally write it as Nephi. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
