20 "Behold, ye have breathed out many threatenings against me and my people; But behold, we fear not your threatenings. 21 "Nevertheless, I will grant to exchange prisoners according to your request, gladly, that I may preserve my food for my men of war; 22 And we will wage a war which shall be eternal, either to the subjecting the Nephites to our authority, or to their eternal extinction! 23 "And as concerning that God whom ye say we have rejected, Behold, we know not such a Being; Neither do ye; But if it so be that there is such a Being, we know not but that He hath made us as well as you; 24 And if it so be that there is a devil and a hell, Behold, will he not send you there to dwell with my brother which ye have murdered, which ye have hinted that he hath gone to such a place? But behold, these things mattereth not. 25 "I am Ammaron and a descendant of Zoram whom your fathers pressed and brought out of Jerusalem. And behold, I am now a bold Lamanite. 26 "Behold, this war hath been waged to avenge their wrongs and to maintain and to obtain their rights to the government; And I close my epistle to Moroni." 27 Now it came to pass that when Moroni had received this epistle, he was more angry because he knew that Ammaron had a perfect knowledge of his fraud- Yea, he knew that Ammaron knew that it was not a just cause that had caused him to wage a war against the people of Nephi- 28 And he said: "Behold, I will not exchange prisoners with Ammaron, save he will withdraw his purpose as I have stated in my epistle; For I will not grant unto him that he shall have any more power than what he hath got. 29 "Behold, I know that place where the Lamanites doth guard my people which they have taken prisoners; And as Ammaron would not grant unto me mine epistle, Behold, I will give unto him according to my words; Yea, I will seek death among them until they shall sue for peace." 30 And now it came to pass that when Moroni had said these words, he caused that a search should be made among his men that perhaps he might find a man which was a descendant of Laman among them. 31 And it came to pass that they found one whose name was Laman; And he was one of the servants of the king which was murdered by Amalickiah. 32 Now Moroni caused that Laman and a small number of his men should go forth unto the guards which were over the Nephites; 33 Now the Nephites were guarded in the City of Gid; Therefore, Moroni caused that Laman and a small number of men, which was appointed, to go with him. 34 And it came to pass that when it was evening, Laman went to the guards which were over the Nephites, And behold, they saw him coming and they hailed him; 35 But he saith unto them: "Fear not- Behold, I am a Lamanite; Behold, we have escaped from the Nephites and they sleepeth; And behold, we have taken of their wine and brought with us." 36 Now when the Lamanites heard these words, they received him with joy; And they said unto him: "Give us of your wine that we may drink; We are glad that ye have thus taken wine with you, for we are weary." 37 But Laman saith unto them: "Let us keep of our wine till we go against the Nephites to battle." But this saying only made them more desirous to drink of the wine; 38 For, said they: "We are weary, therefore, let us take of the wine, And by and by we shall receive wine for our rations which will strengthen us to go against the Nephites." And Laman saith unto them: "You may do according to your desires." 39 And it came to pass that they did take of the wine freely, And it was pleasant to their taste; Therefore, they took of it more freely; And it was strong, having been prepared in its strength. 40 And it came to pass they did drink and were merry; And by and by they were all drunken.
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.
