If you ask a Mormon if women they hold the priesthood, they’ll probably say no. Mormon Heretic noted a dispute in understanding temple priesthood. In Michael Quinn’s book Origins of Power published in 1993, the historian explains why the temple endowment grants women the Melchizedek Priesthood. However, Jonathan Stapley said “Equating early Mormon female healing with evidence of female priesthood is folly.”
My question to you is this: Why do women wear priesthood robes of the Aaronic and Melchizedek Priesthood? Do women hold priesthood inside the temple?
