History of D&C 42 (9 Feb 1831)
The first part, consisting of verses 1 through 72, was received in the presence of twelve elders and in fulfillment of the Lord's promise previously made that the "law" would be given in Ohio. (See section 38:32)
The second portion consists of verses 73 through 93. The Prophet specifies this revelation as "embracing the law of the church."
Marci - Great book: Looking Beyond the Mark - I've just skim read a lot of it. So much to ponder. A lot of things I had not thought of before. Definitely worth reading in depth, taking time to think about it. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
Through the strength of the Lord I can do all things.
