Messiah Script: Episode 7, Part 3

JOHN TANNER: You know, Kent, you make a great point about the Second Coming. When I think about it, Jesus Himself provides the most important source of information about the Second Coming. All four Gospels present Him as speaking openly about His return. He does it in parable; He does it in prophecy; He does it with clarity. He proclaims that He will return to the earth. It’s there on the Mount of Olives where Jesus responds to His disciples’ fervent question: “When shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the...

Messiah Script: Episode 7, Part 2

CECILIA PEEK: The term Dark Ages, I think, is appropriately applied really to any time in human history when God’s authority in the form of the priesthood is not on the earth. So I think it’s appropriately applied to the years that we traditionally think of as the Dark Ages, in that sense. On the other hand, the time period that we traditionally think of as the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages, the Medieval period, was a time when deeply religious men and deeply religious scholars were working to try and interpret and understand and articulate their theology and...

Though some question the reality of a literal Second Coming, LDS scholars find in ancient and modern revelation the confirmation of Christ’s...

MARCUS H. MARTINS: And they are in tears. Nobody’s saying a word, but they are in tears. And He perceives, as only a God can do, that they want him to stay a little longer with them. They want Him to do the miracles that —they would expect Him to do. JOHN W. WELCH: He says, I was going to leave, but let’s stay and do some more. Here in Bountiful, even the lame and the blind were there. An extraordinary event, an accident if you will. They didn’t know He was going to be there. But of their...

Messiah Script: Episode 6, Part 2

JUSTIN SU’A: “Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing” (John 20:27). Those who have the opportunity to not only hear and feel but to touch, they’re given such a great testimony of the divinity of the resurrected Savior.  However, the Lord goes on to give Thomas additional doctrine. He says: “Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (John 20:29). We can apply that to our lives, that we might not have had the opportunity to see the Lord....
