The Church recently announced the formation of a Seventh and Eighth Quorum of the Seventy, due to the large number of brethren in the Fourth Quorum and the large geographical area served by the Third Quorum.
This initially puzzled me since I thought I had remembered a scripture which provided for only seven quorums… after reading through D&C 107:93–96 again, I suppose that the
until seven times seventy may apply to the
other seventy besides the first seventy to whom [the seven presidents of the Seventy] belong, thus providing for a total of eight quorums. That is, the "seven times seventy" applies to the additional quorums chosen by the presidents, rather than to the number of quorums after the additional ones have been added to the first. Still, I found the news a little disconcerting.
