Passage: Alma 16:198 - Alma 16:218

198 "And now my brethren, I desire that ye should plant this word in your hearts, And as it beginneth to swell, even so nourish it by your faith;
199 And behold, it will become a tree, springing up in you unto everlasting life;
200 And then may God grant unto you that your burdens may be light through the joy of His Son; And even all this can ye do, if ye will. Amen."
201 And now it came to pass that after Alma had spoken these words unto them, he sat down upon the ground, And Amulek arose and began to teach them, saying: "My brethren, I think that it is impossible that ye should be ignorant of the things which have been spoken concerning the coming of Christ, who is taught by us to be the Son of God;
202 Yea, I know that these things were taught unto you bountifully before your dissension from among us, And as ye have desired of my beloved brother that he should make known unto you what ye should do because of your afflictions- And he hath spoken somewhat unto you to prepare your minds, Yea, and he hath exhorted you unto faith and to patience,
203 Yea, even that ye would have so much faith as even to plant the word in your hearts, that ye may try the experiment of its goodness. "And we have beheld that the great question which is in your minds is whether the word be in the Son of God, or whether there shall be no Christ.
204 "And ye also beheld that my brother hath proven unto you in many instances that the word is in Christ unto salvation;
205 My brother hath called upon the words of Zenos that redemption cometh through the Son of God, And also upon the words of Zenoch, And also he hath appealed unto Moses to prove that these things are true.
206 "And now behold, I will testify unto you of myself that these things are true;
207 Behold, I say unto you that I do know that Christ shall come among the children of men to take upon Him the transgressions of His people, And that He shall atone for the sins of the world, For the Lord God hath spoken it.
208 "For it is expedient that an atonement should be made; For according to the great plans of the Eternal God, there must be an atonement made, or else all mankind must unavoidably perish-
209 Yea, all are hardened, Yea, all are fallen and are lost and must perish, except it be through the atonement which it is expedient should be made.
210 "For it is expedient that there should be a great and last sacrifice, Yea, not a sacrifice of man, neither of beast, neither of any manner of fowl, For it shall not be a human sacrifice, But it must be an infinite and an eternal sacrifice.
211 "Now there is not any man that can sacrifice his own blood, which will atone for the sins of another.
212 "Now if a man murdereth, behold, will our law, which is just, take the life of his brother? I say unto you, Nay,
213 But the law requireth the life of him who hath murdered; Therefore, there is nothing which is short of an infinite atonement which will suffice for the sins of the world, Therefore, it is expedient that there should be a great and last sacrifice.
214 "And then shall there be, or it is expedient there should be, a stop to the shedding of blood, Then shall the law of Moses be fulfilled, Yea, it shall all be fulfilled, every jot and tittle, And none shall have passed away.
215 "And behold, this is the whole meaning of the law, every whit a pointing to that great and last sacrifice, And that great and last sacrifice will be the Son of God, yea, infinite and eternal. "And thus He shall bring salvation to all those who shall believe on His name,
216 This being the intent of this last sacrifice: To bring about the bowels of mercy, which overpowereth justice, And bringeth about means unto men that they may have faith unto repentance.
217 "And thus mercy can satisfy the demands of justice and encircles them in the arms of safety, While he that exerciseth no faith unto repentance is exposed to the whole law of the demands of justice; Therefore, only unto him that hath faith unto repentance is brought about the great and eternal plan of redemption.
218 "Therefore, may God grant unto you, my brethren, that ye might begin to exercise your faith unto repentance, That ye begin to call upon His holy name that He would have mercy upon you; Yea, cry unto Him for mercy, for He is mighty to save;
