Though this is off the main thread, it's an interesting side thread. I
don't agree that "teacher" was a Melchizedek Priesthood office for the
Nephites; the Melchizedek Priesthood was not generally held among the
Jews, so I don't see why it would have been generally held among the
Nephites, who were after all Jews and who were therefore under the law
Moroni talks about teachers and priests. This is several hundred years after Christ,
so the Nephites had the Melchizedek priesthood at that time and were not under the law
Several of the Brethren have stated that since the Nephites were not Levites they
never did have the Aaronic priesthood even when under the law of Moses. Therefore, so
state these same Brethren, the Nephites always only had the Melchizedek priesthood.
They further state (IIRC) that they could officiate in the ordinances of the law of
Moses through the authority of the Melchizedek priesthood.
