Addendum #47- Full-Length Film: Joseph Smith, The Prophet of the Restoration (06:18-08:00)

The first vision 1.2

ADDENDUM:  The different accounts of the first vision are of equal historical legitimacy.  The church should teach the details of each account even if they favor one over the others.  In film, it would be reasonable to create film depictions of each account.  Even if they weren’t as widely dispersed as the others, the effort to create a media library that actually reflect the other accounts would legitimate them to all members, allowing the church and its members to better know and accept its true history.  such a film wouldn’t necessarily be shown in the Legacy Theater of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building with as much fanfare, but currently no film depictions of the other accounts even exist.
