VIDEO: Did Joseph Smith’s Mother Believe He Could Have Written the Book of Mormon? (Book of Mormon Central Knowhy #555)

Lucy Mack Smith, mother of the Prophet, left behind an important history of the life of Joseph Smith. In her history she describes young Joseph giving the Smith family “amusing recitals” on the ancient inhabitants of the Americas. Some have used this to portray Joseph as having a wild, vivid imagination that lent itself to the composition of the Book of Mormon. A closer look at Lucy’s history, however, undermines this line of argumentation. Read in context, her history strengthens faith in her son’s claims.

VIDEO: The first witness of the Living Christ, Mary Magdalene (Messages of Christ)

Early on Sunday morning, before the sun began to rise, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb to finish a painful task, the burial of her beloved Lord and Master. The pain and agony she must have felt as she mourned the Savior’s death is beyond comprehension. As one of the Lord’s most faithful and devoted followers, Christ’s appearance to Mary that Easter morn, places her as the first witness of the resurrection! Knowing Jesus was willing to reveal himself first to her, gives us all hope that we too can testify of the Savior’s divinity no matter who we are!
