"And John saw and bore record of the fulness of my glory, and the fulness of John's record is hereafter to be revealed...LDS have long awaited this full record of John the Revelator, which is "sealed up to come forth in their purity."
And it shall come to pass, that if you are faithful you shall receive the fulness of the record of John." (D&C 93:6,8)
Archeologists announced that this day may have come. Scholars have unearthed metal codices that date to the first century AD. Just after the death of Jesus. The pages in these 70 books have writings from the Book of Revelation and include a sealed section:
"Academics are divided as to their authenticity but say that if verified, they could prove as pivotal as the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947....
Adding to the intrigue, many of the books are sealed, prompting academics to speculate they are actually the lost collection of codices mentioned in the Bible’s Book Of Revelation." (www.dailymail.co.uk)
Details of what scholars have translated so far point to John the Revelator:
"It's talking about the coming of the messiah," he says.
"In the upper square [of one of the book covers] we have the seven-branch menorah, which Jews were utterly forbidden to represent because it resided in the holiest place in the Temple in the presence of God.
"So we have the coming of the messiah to approach the holy of holies, in other words to get legitimacy from God."...
Another potential link with the Bible is contained in one of the few fragments of text from the collection to have been translated.
It appears with the image of the menorah and reads "I shall walk uprightly", a sentence that also appears in the Book of Revelation. (www.bbc.co.uk)
