Joseph Smith: a Zelph Made Man
Posted by skiutah on Monday, June 16, 2008
Joseph Smith received this vision from God about Zelph:
“I discovered that the person whose skeleton we had seen was a white Lamanite, a large, thick-set man, and a man of God. His name was Zelph. He was a warrior and chieftain under the great prophet Onandagus, who was known from the eastern sea to the Rocky mountains. The curse was taken from Zelph, or, at least, in part-one of his thigh bones was broken by a stone flung from a sling, while in battle, years before his death. He was killed in battle by the arrow found among his ribs, during a great struggle of the Lamanites and Nephites. (History of the Church 2:79-80).
The official translation of the Book of Zelph can be found at this website: The Book of Zelph
If you take the Melph challenge, you can come to know of the truthfulness of the Book of Zelph, another testament of the Book of Mormon.
Indeed, Zelph was a white Lamanite who lived in Illinois. If DNA analysis could be done on General Zelph’s bones, they would conclusively show his ancestors are from Israel and certainly not from Asia.
Ask yourzelph, Joseph Smith could not have made this up, right?
