Another Testament of Jesus Christ

3 Nephi 17-19 | General Conference

After Jesus left the people, word spread quickly that the Savior had come. A large group gathered together. The group was so large that they were divided into twelve groups. Each of the twelve disciples ordained by Jesus Christ taught the people the things they had learned from Jesus the day before. They were witnesses of Jesus Christ called to share His message with the people. We can learn the things they taught their people by reading the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ.

Today we have prophets and apostles who are called as special witnesses of Jesus Christ. Just like the prophets of the Bible and the Book of Mormon, they continue to share His message of peace, love, and hope.

Scripture

3 Nephi 19:28

“Father, I thank thee that thou hast purified those whom I have chosen, because of their faith, and I pray for them, and also for them who shall believe on their words, that they may be purified in me, through faith on their words, even as they are purified in me.”

  • Why did Jesus choose twelve disciples when He visited the people in the Americas?
  • What were the twelve disciples called to do?
  • What authority were the twelve ordained with?
  • Who are the twelve apostles today?
  • How can we listen to their words?

Quote

“The present Twelve are very ordinary people. They are not, as the original Twelve were not, spectacular individually, but collectively the Twelve are a power… They all are students and teachers of the gospel of Jesus Christ. What unites us is our love of the Savior and His Father’s children and our witness that He stands at the head of the Church.” Boyd K. Packer
