I feel like the invitation to be “immersed in the scriptures” reached a whole new level last week when I had the chance to visit the set of The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ videos.
I was in awe! This year they are filming scenes from 3 Nephi—familiar verses where the risen Christ visits the Nephites.
Every detail, from the set and the costumes to the wonderful cast members, was a visual testimony of our Savior. Seeing familiar stories brought to life before my eyes—watching the Savior love and bless and teach the people—I felt a renewed and increased gratitude for how He has loved, and blessed, and taught me.
I can’t wait to watch these videos with my family and with the youth—to use them as part of our study of the Book of Mormon and come to know the Savior better.
He wants to be in our story, and He wants us to know His stories. In Him we will find hope and healing just as those faithful Nephites did so many years ago.
