And she gave to Megordoc the “Book of God”, which book contained the teachings of
Adamilus and Evelah, and of Noaeya and Sariah also; and Megordoc read the book day
and night, and by and by after three years of study, he likewise became a believer
Summary: On the mortal world of Terralee, the teachings of those recognized as dispensational
leaders were collected and compiled over the course of thousands of years, and placed
into what was referred to as the “Book of God” (4:20:34). The “Book of God”, or at
least an initial version of the text, existed as early as the days of Sariah, leader
of the third dispensation (4:17:27). Sariah’s book on faith, hope and trust, referred
to as “The Teachings of Sariah”, was eventually added to the collection which contained
the teachings of Adamilus and Evelah, and Noaeya (4:19:65-66).
The compilation of teachings was not referred to as the “Book of God” until the days
of Megordoc, the fourth great teacher of Terralee. After the passing of Megordoc
(Moshe), his teachings were also included in the “Book of God” (4:20:34). The fifth
teacher, known as Abbahdon, became an expert on the book of teachings, memorizing
word for word the “Book of God”, as well as the nine commentaries written by Moshe
(4:23:48-49). This was an amazing achievement given that Abbahdon was blinded by
fever at the age of twelve (4:23:29-30). His teachings on fortitude and grace were
eventually included in the “Book of God”, which had become a most treasured work
And so the teachings of Abbahdon did likewise find place in the word of God, being
written in the book which all men treasured as something holy and deeply knowing
of every heart; containing within its pages an endless grace and a hidden wisdom.
4th Endowment 26:1
While the book became a respected work among believers, it was not exempt from criticism.
In the days of Laecontes, a man named Gadaris established a fanatical, monotheistic
religious sect known as the Gadarites. Adherents held closely to a book written by
Gadaris, which denounced “in scathing words the teachings of Adamilus and Evelah
and of all who came from Heaven” (4:26:22). Laecontes proved graceful and wise in
dealing with the Gadarites, and his teachings were eventually included in the “Book
of God” (4:29:1).
The seventh and last teacher formally recognized on Terralee was known as Kaseah
the Beautiful (4:29:10). Her teachings on harmony were also included the “Book of
The content included in the 4th Endowment could perhaps be considered a condensed
version of the “Book of God”.
By such means did the second dispensation commence upon the world of Terralee; and
the teachings of Noaeya did Noaeya write in a book for all to read and deep remember.
4th Endowment 12:65
Now it was the custom of Sariah that on the seventh day of every week, she would
sit in the gardens of the city and there would she read from the book, which book
contained all the sayings and teachings of Adamilus and Evelah and Noaeya, too.
4th Endowment 17:27
These then are but a small part of the words which Sariah spoke; and the scribes
did write down all which she had taught, to compile it in a book of sayings; which
book was called: The Teachings of Sariah.
And for sixty years did Sariah continue to speak of faith and hope and godly trust;
and when she was old and bent with years, then was the book added to the teachings
of Adamilus and Evelah, and Noaeya too, to become as one in the hand, filled with
wisdom and benevolence and faith.
4th Endowment 19:65-66
Thus spoke the great but gentle Moshe, and when he was concluded, even all his words
were written down and sent throughout the world of man; and when he was gone from
the earth, then were his words added to the book which came from God.
4th Endowment 22:62
These then were the words of the Divine Laecontes, and faithfully were they written
down and given to the whole assembly, and in the Book of God were the teachings of
Laecontes placed beside the teachings of Abbahdon.
4th Endowment 29:1
Thus began the seventh dispensation through the teachings of Kaseah, and all her
words and teachings did the assembly preserve to put in the Book of God, whereby
whoever should so desire might read and study and deeply ponder.
