In March 1832, in Hiram, Ohio, at the John Johnson home, Joseph Smith was at work on the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible. In connection with his prophetic calling to understand and elucidate the meanings behind many passages in the Bible, several questions were asked and answers were given about the images and characters who figure in the book of Revelation, chapters 4–11. This information, found in Doctrine and Covenants 77 and 88, is presented conveniently in chart 17-5.
