When did the church eliminate or change the office of 70s. Redundant? Are they now high priests and what was the 70s purpose in the first place? Thanks.

My father was a seventy for quite a while. It was like a parking lot for unreliable cars. They parked him there.

If I remember correctly the 70 was a missionary calling. It was probably supplanted by the increased calling of younger and younger men and women.

I think it was a place to put men who really were never going to be high priests and were in the way of up and coming elders that needed to be seen by high priests. Now guys like that are just banished to the back rowuntil they disappear or turn fifty and become high priests.
