3 Nephi 23

CLICK HERE to read 3 Nephi 23.

The Savior says that these things He has taught us are so important that we should search them and study them further.  He says that we should “search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah” (verse 1).  The Savior says that because the prophet was speaking to all people, that means he was speaking to us, too (verse 2).  The Savior says that everything will happen as it has been said (verse 3), so we should “give heed to my words” (verse 4).

And whosoever will hearken unto my words and repenteth and is baptized, the same shall be saved.  Search the prophets, for many there be that testify of these things (verse 5).

When the Savior finished teaching the people these things, and explaining the scriptures to them (verse 6), He asks for the records of the Nephites (verse 7).  Nephi brings them to the Savior (verse 8), and the Savior tells the people about when he commanded Samuel the Lamanite to prophesy to the people about the Savior’s birth (verse 9).  The people respond that they know Samuel did teach them these things (verse 10).  The Savior then asks why the people have not recorded this prophecy (verse 11), and even Nephi remembers this has not been done yet (verse 12).  The Savior reminded the people of the importance of keeping records, and the people write the story of Samuel the Lamanite (verse 13).

The Savior then continued teaching the people, and He commanded the people that they should teach others what He had taught them (verse 14).

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
