Christ Appears In The Kirtland Temple
On April 3, 1836, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery were in the temple at Kirtland, Ohio. The occasion was that of a Sabbath day meeting. The Prophet prefaces his record of the manifestations with these words: "In the afternoon, I assisted the other Presidents in distributing the Lord's Supper to the Church, receiving it from the Twelve, whose privilege it was to officiate at the sacred desk this day. After having performed this service to my brethren, I retired to the pulpit, the veils being dropped, and bowed myself, with Oliver Cowdery, in solemn and silent prayer. After rising from prayer, the following vision was opened to both of us." Doctrine and Covenants 110, gives the account of the vision they received.
