  1. This has been mentioned in several LDS works in the last few years. It’s significant for a few reasons (noine particularly LDS though).

    1) It gives us a “no later than” date for a P(riestly) portion of the OT.

    2) It’s “magical,” something outside the
    normal OT prescriptions.

    3)Hmm. Can’t remember why else.

  2. I am not so confident in using it for a terminus dating for P. The Priestly Benediction is a small piece of text that may well have circulated independantly (as the article notes). However, it does add support for claims of quotes to and allusions of the Book of Numbers in the Book of Mormon. (For example Numbers 12:6 in 1 Nephi 1:8 and 2:1).
