Apostasy and Restoration

Behold the Bridegroom Cometh: Second Coming and Final Judgment

Scholars use scriptural accounts to explore the events that precede the Second Coming of the Savior. These include the Apostasy, the Restoration of the gospel through the Prophet Joseph Smith, and the joining of the records of Judah and Joseph. Daniel’s dream of the “stone cut from the cut from the mountain” is highlighted, as is the prophet Elijah’s mission to set the stage for the Savior’s return and the temple work that will bind the human family together before the Judgment.
