Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith by Joseph Smith Jr.It occurred to me once that the vast majority of the words we regularly read from Joseph Smith are not his own words but things he translated or otherwise received from God. It was a wonderful experience to read this book and finally feel like I knew and understood Joseph. His personality came out and he felt real. My feelings about his prophetic calling went from belief/hope to confidence. He had such a depth of understanding that I continually felt inclined to believe that his wisdom was scarcely matched by even the ancient prophets.

More than three years had passed since the morning in when Joseph Smith had prayed to know which church he should join. The young Prophet was now 17 years old, and he desired to know his standing before God and to receive forgiveness. He had been sent to tell Joseph that God had forgiven his sins 1 and had a great work for him to do. As part of this work, Joseph was to go to a nearby hill, where a sacred record, written on gold plates, was deposited. This record was written by prophets who had lived anciently upon the American continent. By the gift and power of God, Joseph was to translate the record and bring it forth to the world.
