First Vision Four Accounts Comparison (Removed from CES Letter)
The diagram below shows that the chart misrepresents the November 14, 1835 "account." It contains only 9 words so comparing it to the other accounts will unavoidably create the illusion that certain details have been omitted.
"Accounts of the First Vision", LDS.org.
Milton V. Backman, "Joseph Smith's Recitals of the First Vision," Ensign, January 1985.
Dr. James B. Allen, "Eight Contemporary Accounts of Joseph Smith's First Vision - What Do We Learn from Them?", Improvement Era, April 1970, 4-13.
