As Joseph was translating the Book of Ether in the Book of Mormon, he learned that three special witnesses would be able to see the plates. Section 17 is a revelation to Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer, and Martin Harris, who would be the three special witnesses. Through their faith, they were able to see the gold plates, the sword of Laban, the Urim and Thummim, and the Liahona. They were commanded to testify of the things they had seen.

As the translating went on, Joseph and Oliver came across a passage of scripture indicating that one needed authority from God to baptize. Joseph and Oliver had not been baptized, and they decided to ask the Lord how it should be done. They went to a quiet place near the Susquehanna River. When they prayed, a messenger appeared, saying that his name was John, who was called John the Baptist in the New Testament. John the Baptist laid his hands on the heads of Joseph and Oliver and ordained them to the Aaronic Priesthood. The Aaronic Priesthood gave them the authority to baptize. They went to the river where Joseph first baptized Oliver, and then Oliver baptized Joseph. After they had been baptized, they were filled with the Holy Ghost.
