"An Angel or Rather the Savior" at the Kirtland Temple Dedication: The Vision of Frederick G. Williams

Author Frederick G. Williams,

At the Kirtland Temple dedication on March 27, 1836, President Frederick G. Williams testified that he saw a "holy angel" enter the temple during the opening prayer. Nine witnesses wrote about the event, and even though details in their records conflict, it is evident that the angel Williams had seen was the Savior. The vision fulfilled prophecy about the members of the First Presidency each becoming a witness of the Savior.
