“Elect lady” in 2 John was a Relief Society leader?

Posted in Uncategorized by Tod Robbins on October 27, 2009

According to Eliza R. Snow’s article in the premier issue of the Woman’s Exponent, “elect lady” has reference to a Relief Society-type role (found in 2 John 1:1), as part of the Primitive Church. Maybe I’m new to the subject, but that is a very neat connection I had not come across before. Also, after some brief surveying of the topic I came across theories that it may have been Mary, the mother of Jesus. Not verifiable yet interesting enough.
