John the Apostle Captured by Assyrians – Mormon Quotes

Encyclopedia of JS Teachings, pg. 402; The Spirit of the Lord fell upon Joseph in an unusual manner, and he prophesied that John the Revelator was then among the Ten Tribes of Israel who had been led away by Shalmaneser, king of Assyria, to prepare them for their return from their long dispersion.

Mark 1:19-20And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.  20 And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.

How could this be?  Look at a history book and you’ll see that the Assyrians took over the Northern Kingdom of Israel in 700 BC.  The apostle John lived at the time of Jesus.
