The Apostle Peter and the Kirtland Temple

Author Lyndon W. Cook,

There seems little question that Peter did visit the Kirtland Temple and was seen and identified by the Prophet Joseph Smith, but the date of that appearance has been confused, and the matter needs additional consideration. The corroborative accounts of Joseph Smith, Heber C. Kimball, and Truman O. Angell record the visit of an angel to the Kirtland Temple on 27 March 1836. Angell's report provides the additional but important note that the angel who came to accept the dedication of the temple was Peter.
