One thought on “Scripture Roundtable 37: D&C Gospel Doctrine Lesson 33, President Brigham Young Leads the Saints

  1. What about the giving of the keys to the twelve? I am surprised that Andrew F. Ehat’s master thesis, “Introduction of the temple ordinances and the question of the succession of 1844” was not mentioned. Ehat makes a compelling case that special temple keys rested with certain individuals in the quorum. Although It was a time of confusion, certain individuals had received more than others. BY was one of those who had received all the ordinances that a man could received in life.
