  This program is the second half of the inspired interpretation of the allegory of the Tame Olive Tree, which is the history of the House of Israel, their scattering, the planting of branches in various latitudes and grafting in of wild Gentile branches into the roots, etc.  As far as I am aware no business man turned "profit" or scholar has been able to give the interpretation, neither do these scowling men care, but like Daniel who stood alone, apart from the wizards, tricksters, diviners, wise men, charlatans, I offer this interpretation (in the program) given me of the God of Daniel who is able to make these secret things known unto his servants, the true prophets of Israel. The full text of this allegory is given below from the scripture. Please listen to the program for the interpretation of the second half.

There being much more, too numerous to account, but if there is anything that proves that Joseph Smith is a true prophet, it is the allegory of the Tame Olive Tree, which also gives the lie to the black race of Cain partaking of the blessings which belong to the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and those Gentiles grafted into the tame olive tree by way of adoption.

The Text:

1 Behold, my brethren, do ye not remember to have read the words of the prophet Zenos, which he spake unto the house of Israel, saying:

2 Hearken, O ye house of Israel, and hear the words of me, a prophet of the Lord.

3 For behold, thus saith the Lord, I will liken thee, O house of Israel, like unto a tame olive tree, which a man took and nourished in his vineyard; and it grew, and waxed old, and began to decay. (Remainder of text, BOM; Jacob 5.
