86 And it came to pass that after my father had spoken all the words of his dream or vision, which were many, He said unto us, because of these things which he saw in a vision, he exceedingly feared for Laman and Lemuel- 87 Yea, he feared lest they should be cast off from the presence of the Lord; 88 And he did exhort them then with all the feeling of a tender parent that they would hearken to his words, in that perhaps the Lord would be merciful to them and not cast them off. 89 Yea, my father did preach unto them; 90 And after that he had preached unto them and also prophesied unto them of many things, he bade them to keep the commandments of the Lord; 91 And he did cease speaking unto them. 92 And all these things did my father see and hear and speak as he dwelt in a tent in the Valley of Lemuel, And also a great many more things which cannot be written upon these plates. 93 And now as I have spoken concerning these plates, behold, they are not the plates upon which I make a full account of the history of my people, 94 For the plates upon which I make a full account of my people I have given the name of Nephi; 95 Wherefore, they are called the plates of Nephi after mine own name; And these plates also are called the plates of Nephi. 96 Nevertheless, I have received a commandment of the Lord that I should make these plates for the special purpose that there should be an account engraven of the ministry of my people, 97 And upon the other plates should be engraven an account of the reigns of the kings and the wars and contentions of my people; 98 Wherefore, these plates are for the more part of the ministry, And the other plates are for the more part of the reigns of the kings and the wars and contentions of my people; 99 Wherefore, the Lord hath commanded me to make these plates for a wise purpose in Him, which purpose I know not, 100 But the Lord knoweth all things from the beginning; 101 Wherefore, He prepareth a way to accomplish all His works among the children of men, For behold, He hath all power unto the fulfilling of all His words; 102 And thus it is. Amen.
1 Nephi 3 1 And now I, Nephi, proceed to give an account upon these plates of my proceedings and my reign and ministry; Wherefore, to proceed with mine account I must speak somewhat of the things of my father, and also of my brethren. 2 For behold, it came to pass that after my father had made an end of speaking the words of his dream, and also of exhorting them to all diligence, He spake unto them concerning the Jews- How that after they were destroyed, yea, even that great City Jerusalem, and that many were carried away captive into Babylon, That according to the own due time of the Lord they should return again, yea, even be brought back out of captivity; 3 And after that they are brought back out of captivity to possess again their land of inheritance, 4 Yea, even six hundred years from the time that my father left Jerusalem, a Prophet would the Lord God raise up among the Jews, Yea, even a Messiah, or in other words, a Savior of the world.
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.
