Friendship is important to everyone.
Joseph Smith didn’t have a lot of friends. What he had was a Sacred Record etched into gold plates and the divine charge to translate them.
But how? Who would help him?
Enter Martin Harris, a wealthy businessman who believed in Joseph’s mission. He offered the young prophet financial backing and friendship. Soon he began helping Joseph with the translation. But Martin’s wife was determined to destroy their friendship and stop the translation, whatever the cost.
In a desperate attempt to save his marriage, Martin devised a plan to convince her that Joseph Smith was a true prophet: he’d show her the first 116 pages of the translation. But would Joseph Smith agree to let him take the only copy of the manuscript?
