The women at the cross.
Today is Good Friday, a holy day recognized by Christians around the world as the day Christ was crucified in Calvary. Matthew tells us many women watched as Christ suffered and then died on the cross (see Matt. 27:55). Among those women were Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene. Messages of Christ has published a new video offering insights as to the significance of these women who...
Parable of the Sower
In what is probably one of Alma’s most oft-repeated sermons, he compares the word to a seed and encourages us to plant it in our hearts (see Alma 32:28). About a century later, Jesus Christ would use this same comparison when he gives what is commonly known as the Parable of the Sower (see Matthew 13:1-9). He tells of a sower who casts the seeds on four types of soils. Only the seeds sown on the...
Peter's Mother-In-Law
Ever wonder what the home of the apostle Peter might have looked like? Surprisingly we actually know quite a bit about his home, the location for the healing of Peter's mother-in-law. Messages of Christ’s latest video looks deeper into the story of this unnamed woman known only as the mother of Peter’s wife. She had been severely ill and was healed by the Savior’s touch. The video shows how...

Abish, a Lamanite servant, was an unlikely witness. However, after the Lamanite king testified that the Messiah would be born of a woman, she “ran forth from house to house, making it known unto the people” that they might see for themselves how the power of God had converted the king, queen, and others (Alma 19:17). Another group of unlikely witnesses were the shepherds abiding in the fields...

In the Book of Mormon, Enos tells us, “I kneeled down before my Maker, and I cried unto him in mighty prayer…” ( Enos 1:4 ). In the New Testament, we learn of another who also knelt and cried before the Lord. A woman entered uninvited to a home where Jesus was dining. To show her gratitude, with her own tears, she washed and anointed Jesus’ feet. Like Enos, the woman was told by the Lord that her...
Jesus Healing a Crippled Woman
When Jesus Christ visited the Nephites, he asked for those who were sick to come to him so they would be healed. This included those who were afflicted in any manner including the lame. After the people had been healed and were now whole, they immediately began to worship him. (See 3 Nephi 17:7-9). Messages of Christ’s latest video explores a similar miracle found in the New Testament in Luke 13:...

Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are aware that on September 22, 1827, Moroni delivered the gold plates to Joseph Smith. What many members may not know is this day was also the Feast of Trumpets, an ancient Jewish feast celebrated for thousands of years. Messages of Christ’s latest video explains this feast and its connection to the second coming of Christ...
Messages of Christ, Woman at the Well
In the Book of Mormon we find many examples of those who testify of the Savior and his divinity. Some of them initially do not appear to be likely witnesses of the Messiah. Alma the Younger was first rebellious and sought to destroy the church. Zeezrom was a lawyer who debated Alma and Amulek. Yet once they received a personal witness, we learn that they became powerful missionaries bringing...

In the latest video produced by Messages of Christ , Daniel Smith gives a new perspective on the story of the woman accused of adultery. The video teaches how we are often quick to assume she is guilty, but in the end, we don't really know. According to the Law of Moses, it was the witnesses or accusers who were to cast the first stones. Jesus, understanding the true purpose behind the law...
Mary, Martha, and Jesus Christ in the Bible Videos
This week’s Come Follow Me lesson teaches us how Alma lovingly censured Corianton who had chosen wickedness over happiness. We read later in the Book of Mormon that Corianton accepted this chastisement and chose to serve the Lord (see Alma 49:30). In the New Testament, we learn of another who humbly accepted censure from Jesus Christ, Martha, the sister to Mary and Lazarus. Messages of Christ’s...
