New Exhibit: “Joseph F. Smith’s Vision of the Redemption of the Dead”
A new exhibit, “Joseph F. Smith’s Vision of the Redemption of the Dead,” opened in the Church History Library on September 24, 2021. Designed in conjunction with the reopening of the Beehive House, where Joseph F. Smith’s renovated bedroom can now be viewed, all the exhibit’s items relate to President Smith, his family, and the vision of the redemption of the dead, now published as Doctrine and Covenants 138, which he received in that bedroom. For example, President Smith’s scriptures will be on display, as well as a special insert printed in 1976 so that Church members could add the vision to their personal copies of the Pearl of Great Price.

This newly revised research guide features updated information on past and present members of the First Presidency, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Quorums of the Seventy, and Presiding Bishopric.
