February 26 – “Neither give heed to fables or endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.” 1 Tim. 1:4.
Ask the Mormon if Joseph Smith had absolute proof he truly was related to Jesus Christ and if so, what good does it do him? What purpose does it serve to even mention something like this? Would it mean that he had a ticket to heaven because of it? Or is Smith implying the Bible is referring to Smith and he is root of Jesse? You’ll see in other LDS literature where this is indeed the case, unfortunately.
D&C 113:5-6; “What is the root of Jesse spoken of in the 10th verse of the 11th chapter (Isaiah). Behold, thus saith the Lord, it is a descendant of Jesse, as well as of Joseph, unto whom rightly belongs the priesthood, and the keys of the kingdom, for an ensign, and for the gathering of my people in the last days”.
