84 JSH 1:68–69 68 We still continued the work of translation, when, in the ensuing month (May, 1829), we on a certain day went into the woods to pray and inquire of the Lord respecting a baptism for the b remission of sins, that we found mentioned in the translation of the plates. While we were thus employed, praying and calling upon the Lord, a messenger from heaven descended in a c cloud of light, and having laid his d hands upon us, he e ordained us, saying:

85 JSH 1:68–69 Return 69 Upon you my fellow servants, in the name of Messiah, I confer the a Priesthood of b Aaron, which holds the keys of the ministering of angels, and of the gospel of repentance, and of c baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; and this shall never be taken again from the earth until the sons of d Levi do offer again an offering unto the Lord in e righteousness.

86 Articles of Faith 1:5 Return 5 We believe that a man must be a called of God, by b prophecy, and by the laying on of c hands by those who are in d authority, to e preach the Gospel and administer in the f ordinances thereof.

87 JSH 1:71 Return 71 Accordingly we went and were baptized. I a baptized him first, and afterwards he baptized meafter which I laid my hands upon his head and ordained him to the Aaronic Priesthood, and afterwards he laid his hands on me and ordained me to the same Priesthoodfor so we were commanded.*

88 JSH 1:73–74 73 Immediately on our coming up out of the water after we had been baptized, we experienced great and glorious blessings from our Heavenly Father. No sooner had I baptized Oliver Cowdery, than the Holy Ghost fell upon him, and he stood up and a prophesied many things which should shortly come to pass. And again, so soon as I had been baptized by him, I also had the spirit of prophecy, when, standing up, I prophesied concerning the rise of this Church, and many other things connected with the Church, and this generation of the children of men. We were filled with the Holy Ghost, and rejoiced in the God of our salvation.

89 JSH 1:73–74 Return 74 Our minds being now enlightened, we began to have the a scriptures laid open to our understandings, and the b true meaning and intention of their more c mysterious passages revealed unto us in a manner which we never could attain to previously, nor ever before had thought of. In the meantime we were forced to keep secret the circumstances of having received the Priesthood and our having been baptized, owing to a spirit of persecution which had already manifested itself in the neighborhood.

90 JSH 1:69 Return 69 Upon you my fellow servants, in the name of Messiah, I confer the a Priesthood of b Aaron, which holds the keys of the ministering of angels, and of the gospel of repentance, and of c baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; and this shall never be taken again from the earth until the sons of d Levi do offer again an offering unto the Lord in e righteousness.

91 JSH 1:70 Return 70 He said this Aaronic Priesthood had not the power of laying on hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost, but that this should be conferred on us hereafter; and he commanded us to go and be baptized, and gave us directions that I should baptize Oliver Cowdery, and that afterwards he should baptize me.

92 Matthew 4:18–22 18 ¶And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were a fishers. 19 And he saith unto them, a Follow me, and I will make you b fishers of men. 20 And they straightway left their nets, and a followed him.

93 Matthew 4:18–22 Return 21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of a Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he b called them. 22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.

94 Numbers 27:18, 22–23 Return 18 ¶And the Lord said unto Moses, Take thee a Joshua the son of b Nun, a man in whom is the c spirit, and d lay thine hand upon him;

95 Mark 6:5 5 And he could there do no a mighty work, save that he b laid his c hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. Return

Return

98 Doctrine and Covenants 20:70 70 Every member of the church of Christ having a children is to bring them unto the elders before the church, who are to lay their b hands upon them in the name of Jesus Christ, and bless them in his name. Return

99 Doctrine and Covenants 35:6 6 But now I give unto thee a commandment, that thou shalt a baptize by water, and they shall receive the b Holy Ghost by the laying on of the c hands, even as the apostles of old. Return

100 Doctrine and Covenants 42:44 44 And the elders of the church, two or more, shall be called, and shall pray for and a lay their b hands upon them in my name; and if they c die they shall d die unto me, and if they live they shall live unto me. Return

101 Doctrine and Covenants 68:27 27 And their children shall be a baptized for the b remission of their sins when c eight years old, and receive the laying on of the hands. Return

102 Doctrine and Covenants 107:65–67 65 Wherefore, it must needs be that one be appointed of the High a Priesthood to preside over the priesthood, and he shall be called President of the High Priesthood of the Church; 66 Or, in other words, the a Presiding High Priest over the High Priesthood of the Church. 67 From the same comes the administering of ordinances and blessings upon the church, by the a laying on of the hands. Return

103 Acts 8: 9-22 9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used a sorcery, and b bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some c great one: sorcery bewitched great 10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

104 Acts 8: 9-22 12 But when they believed Philip a preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the b name of Jesus Christ, they were c baptized, both men and women. 13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and a wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. 14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the a word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

105 Acts 8: 9-22 15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) 17 Then a laid they their hands on them, and they received the b Holy Ghost. 18 And when Simon saw that through a laying on of the apostles hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,

106 Acts 8: 9-22 19 Saying, Give me also this a power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. 20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the a gift of God may be b purchased with money. 21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not a right in the sight of God.

107 Acts 8: 9-22 22 Repent therefore of this thy a wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the b thought of thine c heart may be forgiven thee. Return
