And they said among themselves as they went: "Behold, now we will know of a surety whether this man be a prophet, And God hath commanded him to prophesy such marvelous things unto us-
Behold, we do not believe that He hath- Yea, we do not believe that he is a prophet; Nevertheless, if this thing which he hath said concerning the chief judge be true-that he be dead- Then will we believe that the other words which he hath spoken are true."
And it came to pass that they ran in their might and came in unto the judgment seat; And behold, the chief judge had fallen to the earth and did lie in his blood.
And now behold, when they saw this they were astonished exceedingly, insomuch that they fell to the earth, For they had not believed the words which Nephi had spoken concerning the chief judge;
But now when they saw, they believed; And fear came upon them lest all the judgments which Nephi had spoken should come upon the people; Therefore, they did quake and had fallen to the earth.

And behold, the people did gather themselves together unto the place of the judgment seat; And behold, to their astonishment they saw those five men which had fallen to the earth.
And now behold, the people knew nothing concerning the multitude which had gathered together at the garden of Nephi; Therefore, they said among themselves: "These men are they which have murdered the judge, And God hath smitten them, that they could not flee from us."
And it came to pass that they laid hold on them and bound them and cast them into prison;
And there was a proclamation sent abroad that the judge was slain and that the murderers had been taken and were cast into prison.
And it came to pass that on the morrow, the people did assemble themselves together to mourn and to fast at the burial of the great and chief judge which had been slain;
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;"
"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.
