226.2: Joseph Smith’s First Vision Accounts (D&C Gospel Doctrine Lesson 3)

“I Had Seen a Vision”

First Vision Accounts


This lesson covers the story that started it all… Joseph’s account of his first vision of God. I feel a close connection to this story since I am from the Palmyra stake! In this lesson we will:

  • Explore the powerful lessons in this narrative about the role of seeking, asking questions, scripture study, and personal revelation.
  • Examine not only the Joseph Smith-History account of the First Vision, but the other historically important accounts Joseph made.
  • Discuss the way scripture is used in gospel teaching.
