“And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives! For we saw him, even on the right hand of God.”*

Thank you, Matt. Joseph Smith first saw Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, in the Sacred Grove. He and Oliver Cowdery later saw Jesus Christ in the Kirtland Temple. Jesus isn’t just a character in the Bible. He lives today!

Joseph wrote, “After the many testimonies which have been given of him.” What testimonies?

The testimonies of prophets in the Old Testament.

And His disciples in the New Testament.

And how can we have our own testimonies of Jesus Christ?

Through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Yes! If we stay close to the Holy Ghost we too can know that Jesus Christ lives and is our Savior and Redeemer.

So tell me, were Joseph and all the prophets telling the truth about Jesus?
