Passage: Alma 16:253 - Alma 17:1

253 And thus ended the seventeenth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
254 And the people of Ammon departed out of the Land of Jershon and came over into the Land of Melek, And gave place in the Land of Jershon for the armies of the Nephites, that they might contend with the armies of the Lamanites and the armies of the Zoramites.
255 And thus commenced a war betwixt the Lamanites and the Nephites in the eighteenth year of the reign of the judges, And an account shall be given of their wars hereafter.
256 And Alma and Ammon and their brethren, and also the two sons of Alma, returned to the Land of Zarahemla after having been instruments in the hands of God of bringing many of the Zoramites to repentance, And as many as were brought to repentance were driven out of their land;
257 But they have lands for their inheritance in the Land of Jershon, And they have taken up arms to defend themselves and their wives and their children and their lands.
258 Now Alma, being grieved for the iniquity of his people, Yea, for the wars and the bloodsheds and the contentions which were among them, And having been to declare the word, or sent to declare the word among all the people in every city,
259 And seeing that the hearts of the people began to wax hard and that they began to be offended because of the strictness of the word, His heart was exceeding sorrowful;
260 Therefore, he caused that his sons should be gathered together, That he might give unto them, every one, his charge separately concerning the things pertaining unto righteousness.
261 And we have an account of his commandments which he gave unto them, according to his own record.

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
