john was the only legal administrator

Someone had asked the meaning of the expression of Jesus that among those born of the woman there has not arisen one greater than John the Baptist (Luke 7:28), to which Joseph Smith responded:

John, at that time, was the only LEGAL administrator, holding the keys of power there was on earth. The keys, the kingdom, the power, the glory, had departed from the Jews; and John, the son of Zachariah, by the holy anointing, and decree of heaven, held the keys of power at that time.Joseph Smith
