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

January 14, 2017

Engaging Gospel Doctrine

“I Had Seen a Vision”

First Vision Accounts


This episode how to productively discuss the First Vision accounts, as modeled by the Gospel Topics Essay. I was pleasantly impressed as I prepared this lesson. I think the Essay did a good job providing access to Joseph’s four accounts of his First Vision and making suggestions as to how best make sense of the accounts.
