D&C 57 – The Land of Promise

Very short post here. The Land of Promise is designated in these two verses. Is is possible that the term “Land of Promise” means one thing in the Book of Mormon and something else in the Doctrine and Covenants.

Doctrine and Covenants 57:1-2

Hearken, O ye elders of my church, saith the Lord your God, who have assembled yourselves together, according to my commandments, in this land, which is the land of Missouri, which is the land which I have appointed and consecrated for the gathering of the saints.

Wherefore, this is the land of promise, and the place for the city of Zion.
