comment If Jesus is God, who/where does Jesus pray to?
@jayyeshu I saw that as I posted this one, and it intrigued me. This question has given me much more detail!

This is interesting, and I didn't know a lot of this before. Thanks, Pat, and welcome to the site.

The Godly nature/human nature perspective is very interesting, but as Caleb said, is probably not a mainstream Christian belief. I up-voted your answer already, but I hope that if you edit your answer, the other down-votes will be removed.

comment If Jesus is God, who/where does Jesus pray to?
Thanks Mawia. So it's obvious that Jesus was praying to God, as He addresses "Father" in His prayers, but what does that mean? From your answer, I am still not clear whether it is Himself or a different being. Also note the addendum to my original question which may help to clarify things: I'm also interested in knowing where Jesus was praying to, or where the being was, at that time, who Jesus was praying to.

Thanks caseyr547; you've clarified a few important points. I have appended to my question a request for clarifying where Jesus was praying to. You do state clearly that Jesus prayed to the Father with whom He is unified, but now I'm uncertain as to where the Father was when Jesus is praying.

Just to make sure I'm clear: so it's not that God is in two places at once really, but rather that Jesus' human part was praying to the God in Him?

comment Is it valid to use grape juice at Communion?
@MasonWheeler You just blew my mind. That's a great point... and will probably be the topic of my Sabbath studies tomorrow.

comment What exactly does it mean that Jesus Christ is the son of God?
+1 for a well-rounded answer. For more on the LDS perspective of Jesus being the literal Son of God, also see: According to LDS/Mormon teaching, what is the relationship between Jesus and Lucifer? and also this question about the LDS view of the Trinity and who God is.

comment Is there any manuscript or historical evidence to support the final 13 verses of Genesis 50 that appear in the Joseph Smith Translation?
@Narnian The languages, yes, but not the origin of the manuscripts: are you looking for inspired writings (as in, not from any source but God), or translated writings (as in, manuscripts written from other manuscripts)?

comment Do Mormons/LDS believe that the Bible in any way predicts the coming of Joseph Smith?
I do specify that it's in the JST.

@Narnian Valid points, but can we please be clear where manuscripts come from? They're written documents, are they not? Whether you mean manuscripts by way of translation or by way of inspiration, you did not specify. And whether one is inspired will always be subjective depending on the reader of the answer.

@Narnian Translations are written as manuscripts. Do you want pictures of manuscripts, or what are you probing for, exactly? And your question, "Was this translation based on Hebrew manuscripts that had this text?" is a better, clearer question than what you're asking currently.

I don't think this question has a good answer. All the different Bibles we have available today are just translations of the same manuscript copies. So what is the manuscript evidence of those translations of the Bible? Well, obviously, the manuscripts themselves. Maybe I'm unclear as to what is being asked here.

Erm, isn't the JST manuscript itself evidence of existence in the original copies?
