The church's magnum opus is being dedicated! The Kirtland temple was four years in the making and had plunged Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon into deep, deep debt.

The priesthood is The Force, the church teaches you how to use that priesthood authority to do All The Things. After that we get the lineage/genealogy of priesthood authority. To sum up, be biologically male, don't be slothful, middle management is the best, don't be born unto the Levitical line of Judaism.

Names with their LDS.org links, kinda not a geneology!
Seth 
Enos, son of Seth 
Mahalaleel, father of Jared 
Jared, I couldn't find a link for him on LDS.org!
Enoch, 7th son of Adam

Like herding puppies through a bacon factory, things haven't been going smoothly. Joseph and his BFFs have returned to Kirtland after the Zion's Camp fiasco. First, Oliver's older brother is sent out to be a missionary, then we learn specifics of how the priesthood works. Specifically, it rewrites church history/timelines such that Joseph
is a legitimate elder in the church rather than just a guy who decided to start a religion.

Cholera sweeps through the Mormons camped on the Fishing River, which hopefully had nothing to do with the remains of a dead "warrior" that Joseph has been carrying around? Most of the saints stay in Missouri on  account of a lack of resources to return to Kirtland, OH. Joseph and his BFFs get on a wagon and return to Ohio.

Joseph re-allocates the church's possessions to his inner circle.

Step 1: Get rid of the Bad People in your inner circle by politicking them out of said inner circle so you can take their portion.

Step 2: Give the big items to people who might know what to do with it.

Step 3: Don't worry about it if your name is John Johnson and literally your entire farm and land is being given to a crazy guy named Martin Harris.

NOT A REVELATION. Sidney Rigdon gets written out of history in a few decades, but for right now he's one of the three most important people in the church. Joseph sets up a hierarchy and a quasi-basis for church organization that will eventually morph into the Quorum of the Twelve. You're required to listen to this podcast three times to really get the full effect.

Joseph waxes poetical about the importance of forgiveness. How much, how often, how to ensure generational feuds are perpetuated etc. The headings indicate it's about Zion, but since it only mentions Kirtland..... Yeah. Guess how Marie and Bryce feel about that.

Joseph solved a power grab attempt by Rigdon by making Ridgon, Frederick G Williams, and Joseph "equal". Being a Gentile or a Jew is very confusing. Joseph revelates the life savings away from the only named woman in the D&C that's not his wife.

Are you fasting??? You should be. Proselytize all the time!!! If you aren't seeking god, then you are hosed. Eclipse, earthquake, stars will be knocked out of orbit, bad storms with big waves, women are evil. Skip to verse 99 for useful information about resurrections, which isn't at all helpful for the upbuilding of Zion, but whatever, get over it. Marie is going to die at the 7th trumpet.
