Encyclopedia of Mormonism, pg. 515; “The First Vision of the Prophet Joseph Smith is the beginning point, the fountainhead, of the restoration of the gospel in this dispensation. This theophany occurred in a grove near Palmyra, New York, in the spring of 1820.”
Revelation 2:2; “I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars.”
Someday Joseph Smith’s “theophany” will be nothing but a distant memory for us all.
