He ‛d better be careful with this can of worms. No other
founder of a religion ever claimed to have personally seen
Jesus Christ once, much less 3 times, or to have received Revelation,
instructions, and/or teachings from Him.
 
     
  May I remind the court that although I have
stated that I was all alone when I saw Christ
the first time, I was not alone during the other
two experiences recorded in the Doctrine and
Covenants. 1 Sidney Rigdon, and then Oliver
Cowdery also saw Him.
 
     
  Among the many other times when I was visited by
the Lord, others also witnessed to having been with
me. They saw Him also and recorded their testimonies. These instances are just like when Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihju and 70 Elders saw the God of Israel at the same time. ( Ex. 24:9-11 )
 
     
  It should come as no surprise
that other members and
Church leaders have testified
that they have seen him
privately in person and/or
in specific detailed dream
visions. ( Joel 2:28-30 )
