Mormon Observations on “The Book of Mormon” the Musical – All-American Prophet

All the posts in this series.

Go back to “All-American Prophet”.

The Three Witnesses and the Eight Witnesses
“But don’t let anybody see these plates except for you”

In the Introduction to The Book of Mormon we learn about 11 people who saw the plates. The Three Witnesses were shown the plates by the angel Moroni and heard the voice of God testifying of their truthfulness; the Eight Witnesses were shown the plates by Joseph Smith, who allowed them to leaf through the pages and heft the plates.

There were also others who saw the plates. Emma Smith, the wife of the prophet who even acted as his scribe for a short time, saw the plates. Mary Whitmer was also shown the plates.
