Verse 2[edit]

In verse 2 the Lord tells Edward Partridge that he will lay his hand on Edward by the hand of Sidney Rigdon to give Edward the gift of the Holy Ghost. What does it mean that the Lord will lay his hand on Edward by the hand of Sidney? This isn't the usual language we use when we describe ordinances involving laying on hands, but the point that the Lord seems to be making here is that when others act in the Lord's name with the proper authority, it is like the Lord himself is performing the ordinance.

Notes[edit]

Footnotes are not required but are encouraged for factual assertions that average readers cannot easily evaluate for themselves, such as the date of King Solomon’s death or the nuanced definition of a Greek word. In contrast, insights rarely benefit from footnoting, and the focus of this page should always remain on the scriptures themselves rather than what someone has said about them. Links are actively encouraged on all sections of this page, and links to authoritative sources are preferable to footnotes.
