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 
of Moses. 


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 
of Moses.

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.
