An addition to the BHT, about whether only one man may be a prophet, or if many people may be, at the same time.

26 However, there were two men, Eldad and Medad, who stayed behind in the camp. They were among the elders, but they did not gather together with the Quorum of the Seventy around the Temple. The Spirit of God was with these two men too, and they also prophesied.

27 And one of the Young Men saw what was happening and ran to tattle to Moses, shouting, “Look, Prophet Moses! Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp!”

28 And Joshua, son of Nun, who was First Counselor to Moses since he was young, urged him saying, “President Moses, Prophet sir, you’ve got to make them stop!”

29 But Moses looked at both of them squarely and retorted, “Why the hell are you so jealous, protective, and greedy about me alone being “the Prophet”?! I wish that ALL people were prophets, and that God would give ALL of them the Spirit of God, this mystical contemplative visionary consciousness to prophecy in God’s voice, each and every last one of them!”
