Much of what is contained in D&C 20 is similar to what is found in the Book of Mormon. For example, the sacrament prayers, found in Doctrine and Covenants 20:77, 79, quote almost verbatim from the Book of Mormon. The procedures for baptism also show the same heavy reliance on the Book of Mormon. The similarities between Doctrine and Covenants 20 and texts in the Book of Mormon show the importance of the Book of Mormon for the Restoration. They also show that the Lord organized His church in a similar way in each dispensation.
