The last week of Jesus’s mortal life was a time filled with completions. As His time drew near, He knew that many parts of His mission needed to be drawn fully to conclusion. And by the time that week ended, He had in fact finished all that He had been sent to do and all that was necessary to allow the eternal plan of His Father to succeed. Prophecies needed to be fulfilled. The week began with...

Because The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has temporarily suspended all church meetings , we would love to offer a few suggestions on how you can better worship as individuals and families at home. We are grateful to have a prophet of God on the earth today to lead, guide, and prepare disciples of Jesus Christ. In the October 2018 General Conference , President Nelson prophetically...

1. Read Isaiah as Poetry One of the things that can make Isaiah confusing is its abstract and expressive language. Isaiah was both a prophet and a poet, so one of the things you can do to make his prophecies easier to grasp is to read Isaiah as poetry. BYU Professor Donald W. Parry published a book called Poetic Parallelisms in the Book of Mormon (available to read for free online!)...

Take Your Scripture Study to the Next Level With the beginning of the Come Follow Me curriculum , members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints may be wondering how to make their scripture study more meaningful in their families and personal lives. The answer is simple, but so often under-utilized: if you want to get more out of your scripture study, you have to bring more in. If you...
La Virgen del Apocalipsis, by Miguel Cabrera
As discussed in our December 10th Come, Follow Me blog post by Jasmin Gimenez, the Book of Mormon prophet Nephi recorded a panoramic vision of future events ( 1 Nephi 11–14 ). However, Nephi was instructed to not record the conclusion of his vision. This is because, according to his angelic guide, this portion of the vision would later be written by John, one of the “apostles of the...

More than two thousand years ago, angels appeared to startled shepherds to announce the birth of the Son of God. “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be unto all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” ( Luke 2:10 ; emphasis added). At this season, when we celebrate...
El sueño de Lehi by Jorge Cocco
The Revelation of John presents modern readers with a dizzying array of animals, characters, kingdoms, and symbols that can be hard to decipher. Thankfully, the Book of Mormon can help guide us through some of the Gospel truths found in this important New Testament revelation. In a sense, Lehi’s and Nephi’s vision of the Tree of Life serves as an introduction to the Revelation of John. The...

As King Benjamin concluded his speech, his people said, “we are willing to enter into a covenant with our God to do his will, and to be obedient to his commandments in all things that he shall command us, all the remainder of our days” ( Mosiah 5:5 ). Benjamin then informed, “because of the covenant which ye have made ye shall be called the children of Christ, his sons, and his daughters; for...

The epistles of 1 and 2 Peter may be comparatively short, but they are significant for Latter-day Saints in that they anchor some of the more unique Restoration teachings to the New Testament. For instance, President Joseph F. Smith’s vision of Jesus Christ preaching his gospel to the dead was prompted, in part, by his reading of 1 Peter 3:18–20 and 1 Peter 4:6 . 1 Peter 3:18–20 1 Peter 4:6 For...
