Ezekiel 37:15-20

The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.

The Lord told us that there was going to be a record of the tribe of Joseph and the tribe of Judah. The references to sticks are to books or records of that people since things were written on scrolls at the time. The record for the tribe of Judah is what we call the Bible. It covers the history of the Jews and Christ’s coming that people.  The history of the tribe of Joseph is recorded in The Record of the Nephites.  In this history the Gospel of Christ is also taught just like in the Bible, but is clearer language.  Christ came for all mankind, just not the Israel.
