Lesson 33: Doctrine and Covenants 107:22-24

Verse 22: What does “chosen by the body” mean? Does it mean the same thing today that it meant when this revelation was given? What does it mean that the First Presidency is “upheld by the confidence, faith, and prayer of the church”?

Verse 23: Who were “the twelve traveling councilors” when this revelation was given? What does it mean to be a special witness of Christ? Are there also other witnesses? Who might the others be? Why does being a special witness make the Twelve different from other officers in the church?

Verse 24: Why is it important that the Twelve and the First Presidency are equal in authority and power? If they are equal in authority and power, how is it that the First Presidency presides? Are there other instances of priesthood holders or quorums that are equal in power and authority but one presides? What does it mean to preside in such a circumstance?
