My Words Which Are My Voice

Preparing to teach gave me a greater understanding of what the Lord means when He admonished us to pay attention to “my words, which are my voice.” In 1997 I gave a presentation to Mormon educators called “The Miracle of the Doctrine and Covenants.”  As I studied in preparation for this lecture, I typed the […]

The Empty Tomb

After the crucifixion of Christ, the chief priests and Pharisees were terrified of the prospect of an empty tomb, and came to Pilate.  They claimed to be concerned that someone might steal the body of Christ from the tomb where He had been laid, and then announce that He had been resurrected as He had […]
