For behold, Nephi was baptizing and prophesying and preaching, crying repentance unto the people, Showing signs and wonders, working miracles among the people, That they might know that the Christ must shortly come;
Telling them of things which must shortly come, That they might know and remember at the time of their coming that they had been made known unto them beforehand, to the intent that they might believe;
Therefore, as many as believed on the words of Samuel went forth unto him to be baptized, For they came repenting and confessing their sins.
But the more part of them did not believe in the words of Samuel; Therefore, when they saw that they could not hit him with their stones and their arrows, they cried out unto their captains, saying: "Take this fellow and bind him, for behold, he hath a devil;
And because of the power of the devil which is in him, we cannot hit him with our stones and our arrows; Therefore, take him and bind him and away with him!"
And as they went forth to lay their hands on him, Behold, he did cast himself down from the wall and did flee out of their hands, yea, even unto his own country, And began to preach and to prophesy among his own people; 120
And behold, he was never heard of more among the Nephites. And thus were the affairs of the people;
And thus ended the eighty and sixth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
And thus ended also the eighty and seventh year of the reign of the judges- The more part of the people remaining in their pride and wickedness, And the lesser part walking more circumspectly before God.
And thus were the conditions also in the eighty and eighth year of the reign of the judges.
And there was but little alteration in the affairs of the people, Save it were the people began to be more hardened in iniquity and do more and more of that which was contrary to the commandments of God in the eighty and ninth year of the reign of the judges.
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.
