Passage: 1 Nephi 5:231 - 1 Nephi 5:251

231 Not that I would excuse myself because of other men, But because of the weakness which is in me according to the flesh, I would excuse myself.
232 For the things which some men esteem to be of great worth, both to the body and soul, others set at naught and trample under their feet;
233 Yea, even the very God of Israel do men trample under their feet;
234 I say trample under their feet, but I would speak in other words-
235 They do set Him at naught and hearken not to the voice of His counsels.
236 And behold, He cometh, according to the words of the angel, in six hundred years from the time my father left Jerusalem.
237 And the world, because of their iniquity, shall judge Him to be a thing of naught; Wherefore, they scourge Him, and He suffereth it; And they smite Him, and He suffereth it;
238 Yea, they spit upon Him, and He suffereth it- Because of His loving-kindness and His long-suffering toward the children of men.
239 And the God of our fathers, which were led out of Egypt out of bondage, and also were preserved in the wilderness by Him,
240 Yea, the God of Abraham and of Isaac and the God of Jacob yieldeth Himself, according to the words of the angel, as a man into the hands of wicked men, To be lifted up, according to the words of Zenoch,
241 And to be crucified, according to the words of Neum,
242 And to be buried in a sepulcher, according to the words of Zenos which he spake concerning the three days of darkness,
243 Which should be a sign given of His death unto them who should inhabit the isles of the sea,
244 More especially given unto them which are of the house of Israel.
245 For thus spake the prophet: "The Lord God surely shall visit all the house of Israel eat that day-
246 Some with His voice, because of their righteousness, unto their great joy and salvation,
247 And others with the thunderings and the lightnings of His power-by tempest, by fire, and by smoke and vapor of darkness, and by the opening of the earth, and by mountains which shall be carried up.
248 "And all these things must surely come," saith the prophet Zenos;
249 "And the rocks of the earth must rend;
250 And because of the groanings of the earth, many of the kings of the isles of the sea shall be wrought upon by the Spirit of God to exclaim, 'The God of nature suffers!'
251 "And as for they which are at Jerusalem," saith the prophet, "they shall be scourged by all people," saith the prophet, "because they crucified the God of Israel and turned their hearts aside, rejecting signs and wonders and power and glory of the God of Israel.

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
