Certainly Christ met with opposition from his youth up no different than Joseph Smith
Christ learned obedience by the things which he suffered. He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. How so? Because like Joseph Smith the adversary knew that he was to be a disturber of his kingdom, and he met with opposition as Joseph Smith did from his youth up, for example he had to flee into Egypt. But there was more than that. Certainly, while we don't have it recorded, and while he grew in favor with God and man, nevertheless, the great ones of his day would take notice of this obscure carpenters son whose circumstances necessitated his earning his means by his daily labor.
