First Vision

The First Vision was a transcendent vision that occurred in the spring of 1820, in which Joseph Smith saw and conversed with God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. The First Vision is of pre-eminent importance and marked the opening of the final chapter in the history of mankind before the second coming of Christ.
