Passage: 1 Nephi 1:78 - 1 Nephi 1:88

78 And all this he hath done because of the commandment of the Lord, For he knowing that Jerusalem must be destroyed because of the wickedness of the people-
79 For behold, they have rejected the words of the prophets-
80 Wherefore, if my father should dwell in the land after that he hath been commanded to flee out of the land, behold, he would also perish;
81 Wherefore, it must needs be that he flee out of the land.
82 "And behold, it is wisdom in God that we should obtain these records, that we might preserve unto our children the language of our fathers,
83 And also that we may preserve unto them the words which have been spoken by the mouth of all the holy prophets which have been delivered unto them by the Spirit and power of God since the world began, even down unto this present time."
84 And it came to pass that after this manner of language did I persuade my brethren, that they might be faithful in keeping the commandments of God.
85 And it came to pass that we went down to the land of our inheritance, And we did gather together our gold and our silver and our precious things;
86 And after that we had gathered these things together, we went up again unto the house of Laban.
87 And it came to pass that we went in unto Laban and desired him that he would give unto us the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, For which we would give unto him our gold and our silver and all our precious things.
88 And it came to pass that when Laban saw our property, that it was exceeding great, He did lust after it insomuch that he thrust us out and sent his servants to slay us, that he might obtain our property.

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
