At first, Lach didn't believe the image inside could be Joseph Smith Jr, but after over two years of research, Lach and historian Ron Romig are compelled to believe the locket does contain the first ever daguerreotype of Joseph Smith Jr. Their research and finding are published in the Spring/Summer 2022 John Whitmer Historical Association Journal.

1575: Joseph Smith and Treasure Digging w/ LDS Discussions - 01

Mormon Stories - LDS

Over the last decade the Mormon Church has officially admitted that Joseph Smith and his family believed in and practiced treasure-seeking using folk magic and occult methods. However, many people overlook how these illegal and disreputable practices are closely related to the stories that Joseph would tell later, including the creation of the Book of Mormon. In this episode, Mike from LDS Discussions talks to us about Joseph Smith’s treasure digging and how it relates to the Book of Mormon story and the Church as a whole.

Joseph Smith's Handwritten Virtue Letter Once Owned by Mark Hofmann! w/Brent Ashworth

Mormon Book Reviews Podcast

On the latest "Show & Tell" with Brent Ashworth on Mormon Book Reviews, a very unique handwritten letter by Joseph Smith is discussed. When Joseph Smith was returning from his unsuccessful trip to Washington DC, where he tried to convince Martin Van Buren to intervene on behalf of the Saints, he made a stop in Philadelphia. There he made an address in a synagogue and it lead to many baptisms and the church began to grow in the city. While staying as a guest at a home, he signed a vistors log and wrote a short statement about virtue and a blessing to the household for letting him and his company stay there. This is the only known fully handwritten item by Joseph that is in private hands. Brent also details his twelve year effort to finally acquire this special document, and he describes how he ended up buying it from Mark Hofmann! I want to thank Brent for coming on and sharing this item with me and my audience.Show and Tell

Who Killed Joseph Smith? w/ Writer and Director Justin Griffin

Mormon Book Reviews Podcast

On a special episode of Mormon Book Reviews Steven Pynakker interviews Justin Griffin the writer and director of the controversial film "Who Killed Joseph Smith?". I was at first reluctant to have this conversation, but the more I thought about it I felt it would be important for an outsider like me to participate in it. I also felt that it was important to discuss Justin's faith journey which can often be overlooked when someone does something controversial. The making of the film and building the set, how studying the Book of Isaiah led him to investigate what happened at Carthage, how watching an old video uploaded to YouTube impacted him, and encountering the work of Sam Weston and John Hajicek are among the many topics covered. I want to thank Justin for coming on at such short notice and I look forward to hearing feedback from my audience.

Episode 49: Understanding Joseph Smith’s Bible Translation (Jared Ludlow)

Y Religion

In the summer of 1830, the Prophet Joseph Smith began an audacious undertaking: to translate the Holy Bible.  But what was this Bible “translation”? Was he reading from other languages? Was he restoring the Bible text to its earliest condition? Was it an inspired commentary? Is the JST canonized scripture? And, did Joseph ever finish the complete translation? In this episode, Dr. Jared Ludlow shares his recent publications tackling these questions and more.
