Scripture

“And also with Peter, and James, and John, whom I have sent unto you, by whom I have ordained you and confirmed you to be apostles,…Unto whom I have committed the keys of my kingdom and a dispensation of the gospel for the last times.” —Doctrine & Covenants 27:12-13

Quote

“The keys of the priesthood are the powers to direct the exercise of priesthood authority. Thus, when the Apostles conferred the Melchizedek Priesthood upon Joseph and Oliver, they also gave them the keys to direct its exercise.” Dallin H. Oaks
