Passage: 3 Nephi 13:17 - 3 Nephi 13:37
17 And He saith unto them: "Behold, I know your thoughts; And ye have desired the thing which John My beloved, which was with Me in My ministry before that I was lifted up by the Jews, desired of Me;
18 Therefore, more blessed are ye, for ye shall never taste of death, But ye shall live to behold all the doings of the Father unto the children of men, Even until all things shall be fulfilled according to the will of the Father, when I shall come in My glory with the powers of heaven;
19 And ye shall never endure the pains of death; But when I shall come in My glory, ye shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye from mortality to immortality; And then shall ye be blessed in the kingdom of My Father.
20 "And again, ye shall not have pain while ye shall dwell in the flesh, Neither sorrow, save it be for the sins of the world;
21 And all this will I do because of the thing which ye have desired of Me, For ye have desired that ye might bring the souls of men unto Me while the world shall stand; And for this cause ye shall have fullness of joy and ye shall sit down in the kingdom of My Father;
22 Yea, your joy shall be full, even as the Father hath given Me fullness of joy; And ye shall be even as I am; And I am even as the Father, And the Father and I are one,
23 And the Holy Ghost beareth record of the Father and Me; And the Father giveth the Holy Ghost unto the children of men because of Me."
24 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spake these words, He touched every one of them with His finger, save it were the three which were to tarry; And then He departed.
25 And behold, the heavens were opened, And they were caught up into heaven and saw and heard unspeakable things;
26 And it was forbidden them that they should utter, Neither was it given unto them power that they could utter the things which they saw and heard;
27 And whether they were in the body or out of the body, they could not tell; For it did seem unto them like a transfiguration of them, That they were changed from this body of flesh into an immortal state that they could behold the things of God.
28 But it came to pass that they did again minister upon the face of the earth; Nevertheless, they did not minister of the things which they had heard and seen because of the commandment which was given them in heaven.
29 And now whether they were mortal or immortal from the day of their transfiguration, I know not; But this much I know, according to the record which hath been given- They did go forth upon the face of the land and did minister unto all the people, uniting as many to the church as would believe in their preaching, baptizing them,
30 And as many as were baptized did receive the Holy Ghost; And they were cast into prison by them who did not belong to the church,
31 And the prisons could not hold them, for they were rent in twain; And they were cast down into the earth,
32 But they did smite the earth with the word of God, insomuch that by His power they were delivered out of the depths of the earth; And therefore, they could not dig pits sufficiently to hold them;
33 And thrice they were cast into a furnace and received no harm;
34 And twice were they cast into a den of wild beasts, And behold, they did play with the beasts as a child with a suckling lamb and received no harm.
35 And it came to pass that thus they did go forth among all the people of Nephi and did preach the gospel of Christ unto all people upon the face of the land;
36 And they were converted unto the Lord and were united unto the church of Christ; And thus the people of that generation were blessed according to the word of Jesus.
37 And now I, Mormon, make an end of speaking concerning these things for a time.
