Christ: Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophets testified shall come into the world.

Christ: And behold, I am the light and the life of the world.

Voice: Mandy?

Christ: I have drunk out of that bitter cup which the Father hath given me, and have glorified the Father in taking upon me the sins of the world.

Voice: Mandy! Do you hear me?

Christ: Arise and come forth unto me, that ye may thrust your hands into my side, and also that ye may feel the prints of the nails in my hands and in my feet.

Voice: Answer me, Mandy! Where are you?

Mom: Oh, you’re in the land Bountiful. Sorry I interrupted.

Christ: Have ye any that are sick among you? Bring them hither.*
