Sidetracks: Elias in Mormon Tradition

24 05 2008

From http://scriptures.lds.org/bd/e/30

In Mormon tradition Elias is also a title:

QUOTE: Elias is also a title for one, who is a forerunner, for example, John the Baptist,

These passages are sufficiently clarified to show that anciently two Eliases were spoken of, one as a preparer and the other a restorer. John was sent to prepare the way for Jesus, Jesus himself being the Restorer who brought back the gospel

The title Elias has also been applied to many others for specific missions or restorative functions that they are to fulfill

Thus the word Elias has many applications and has been placed upon many persons as a title pertaining to both preparatory and restorative functions.

Not that it has much to do with the movie…
