    “He rose from the grave to ‘become the firstfruits of them that slept’ (1 Cor. 15:20). As Risen Lord, He visited among those He had loved in life. He also ministered among His ‘other sheep’ (John 10:16) in ancient America. In the modern world, He and His Father appeared to the boy Joseph Smith, ushering in the long-promised ‘dispensation of the fulness of times’ (Eph. 1:10).”

    Three Important Visits

    Take turns pointing to a picture and telling about a time when Jesus came back to visit people. Then you could sing “I Know That My Redeemer Lives” (page 17).

    “Peace be unto you.”John 20:18–22

    Jesus’s disciples were glad when they saw Him. How do you think you will feel when you see the Savior someday?
