Brand new softcover pamphlet! ; "The office of the Apostles is the Alpha and Omega of the Priesthood. It has embodied in it all there is of Priesthood as pertaining to this earth."
In this landmark doctrinal discourse given by Elder Joseph E. Taylor in 1890, the differing duties of the various offices of the Priesthood are layed out in a clear and precise manner. Discussed is not only the office of Apostle, of which the Quorum of the Twelve and the Quorum of the Seventy are a part of, but also the offices of Patriarch, Bishop, Elder, High Priest, and the Aaronic Priesthood offices.
In addition to Elder Taylor's discourse, there is a note section at the end, which offers additional insight into the principles that he addressed on Priesthood. There is quoted an article from 1873 which reports that President Brigham Young organized a Quorum of Seven which stood higher in rank that did the Quorum of the Twelve. Additionally, there are quotes on the Apostleship, on the Apostleship of the Seventy (something which is not generally understood today) , the relationship of the Seventy and High Priest, and the fulness of the Priesthood.
For those who understand the offices of Priesthood in the early Church, this discourse is not only insightful and faith-promoting, but dispels many mysteries on the organization of the power of God on earth! For those who do not understand the office of the Priesthood, this is a great article to introduce some very thought-provoking ideas. ; The FIG Project Series; 5.5" x 8.5"; 25 pages
