“A Visit from John the Baptist,” Friend, February 2021
One day Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery had a question. What was the right way to be baptized? They prayed to know the answer.
An angel came. It was John the Baptist. He had baptized Jesus. He told them that they needed the priesthood to baptize people.
John blessed Joseph and Oliver. He gave them the priesthood. Now they could baptize people the way Jesus was baptized.
Joseph baptized Oliver in the river. Then Oliver baptized Joseph. Later, many others were baptized too.
Because Heavenly Father answered Joseph Smith’s prayer, the priesthood is back on earth! I can be baptized like Jesus was.
