‘The Priesthood was first given to Adam…. He obtained it in the creation, before the world was formed…. He had dominion given him over every living creature. He is Michael the Archangel, spoken of in the scriptures…. The Priesthood is an everlasting principle, and existed with God from eternity, and will to eternity, without beginning of days or end of years.

Christ is the Great High Priest, Adam next.’  Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation,vol. 1:99.
