Here are some highlights in the life of Oliver Cowdery.  
     
  Book
of
Mormon
 
   
 
  Oliver, as a scribe for Joseph in 1829, wrote the majority of the Book of Mormon while Joseph dictated the translation.  
  Joseph and Oliver received the
Priesthoods* from John the
Baptist and the Apostles, Peter,
James, and John in 1829.
 
     
  In 1829, he saw Moroni and the Plates and heard Heavenly Father ‛s voice state that it was translated correctly.  
  Oliver was
excommunicated
in 1838.
 
  In 1848, four years after Joseph ‛s death, Oliver shared his testimony in court.  
     
  In 1848, Oliver requested membership again with no attempt to take a leadership position.  
  In 1849, Oliver visited
David Whitmer, encouraging him to let go of his pride and rejoin the Church.
 
  While at David ‛s house, Oliver became
sick and died. His last words were
“Brother David, be true to your
testimony of the Book of Mormon.”
