“Carried Away in a Vision”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

This is an experience common to the prophets and the righteous. Examples include:

“Saw and Heard Much”

Similarly, Joseph Smith learned much in the First Vision that he was forbidden to write or tell (see Joseph Smith—History 1:20). Of his vision of the degrees of glory he said, “I could explain a hundred fold more than I ever have of the glories of the kingdoms manifested to me in the vision, were I permitted, and were the people prepared to receive them” (Teachings, p. 305).
