Passage: Alma 1:50 - Alma 1:60

50 Nevertheless, the law was put in force upon all those who did transgress it, inasmuch as it were possible.
51 And it came to pass that by thus exercising the law upon them, every man suffering according to that which he had done, they became more still and durst not commit any wickedness if it were known;
52 Therefore, there was much peace among the people of Nephi until the fifth year of the reign of the judges.
53 And it came to pass in the commencement of the fifth year of their reign there began to be a contention among the people, For a certain man, being called Amlici- He being a very cunning man, yea, a wise man as to the wisdom of the world, He being after the order of the man that slew Gideon by the sword who was executed according to the law-
54 Now this Amlici had, by his cunning, drawn away much people after him, even so much that they began to be very powerful; And they began to endeavor to establish Amlici to be a king over the people.
55 Now this was alarming to the people of the church, and also to all those who had not been drawn away after the persuasions of Amlici,
56 For they knew that according to their law, that such things must be established by the voice of the people;
57 Therefore, if it were possible that Amlici should gain the voice of the people, he, being a wicked man, would deprive them of their rights and privileges of the church, etc., For it was his intent to destroy the church of God.
58 And it came to pass that the people assembled themselves together throughout all the land- Every man according to his mind, whether it were for or against Amlici- In separate bodies, having much dispute and wonderful contentions one with another;
59 And thus they did assemble themselves together to cast in their voices concerning the matter; And they were laid before the judges.
60 And it came to pass that the voice of the people came against Amlici, that he was not made king over the people.

Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus

Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.

Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:

 

"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"

--Ether 1:112

 

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

--Zechariah 12:10
