Could ancient Americans really have known how to make cement? The Book of Mormon says yes. As recorded in Helaman 3:7, the people in the land northward “became exceedingly expert in the working of cement.” They built houses and even cities of the stuff. Yet only in recent decades have scholars widely recognized that pre-Columbian peoples actually knew about this invaluable building material...
John Hilton III explaining the Book of Mormon in five minutes.
In the October 1988 general conference, President Ezra Taft Benson declared, “I have a vision of flooding the earth with the Book of Mormon.” He said, “The time is long overdue for a massive flooding of the earth with the Book of Mormon,” and stressed the need to take advantage of “the electronic media and the mass distributions of the printed word” that was available at that time. As...

I’ll be honest, when I received my endowment, I didn’t have the greatest experience. I hadn’t taken a temple preparation class, and I had heard some misinformation about the temple that made me nervous. In short, I probably wasn’t ready to attend the temple. Fortunately, my parents encouraged me to go back, and after a few more visits to the temple I loved it, and felt its spiritual power. But...

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...

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:...
