Passage: Alma 16:30 - Alma 16:40

30 "Ye say that those ancient prophecies are true; Behold, I say that ye do not know that they are true.
31 "Ye say that this people is a guilty and a fallen people because of the trangression of a parent; Behold, I say that a child is not guilty because of its parents.
32 "And ye also say that Christ shall come; But behold, I say that ye do not know that there shall be a Christ;
33 And ye say also that He shall be slain for the sins of the world. "And thus ye lead away this people after the foolish traditions of your fathers and according to your own desires.
34 "And ye keep them down, even as it were, in bondage, That ye may glut yourselves with the labors of their hands, That they durst not look up with boldness, And that they durst not enjoy their rights and privileges;

38 And it came to pass that when he was brought before Alma and the chief judge, that he did go on in the same manner as he did in the Land of Gideon, Yea, he went on to blasphemy;
39 And he did rise up in great swelling words before Alma, And did revile against the priests and teachers, accusing them of leading away the people after the silly traditions of their fathers for the sake of glutting by the labors of the people.
40 Now Alma saith unto him: "Thou knowest that we do not glut ourselves upon the labors of this people, For behold, I have labored, even from the commencement of the reign of the judges until now, with mine own hands for my support; Notwithstanding my many travels round about the land to declare the word of God unto my 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
