December 3 – Jesus prophesies of His resurrection! Matthew 20:17-19; “And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, 18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, 19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.”
This has to be one of the most incredible prophecies of the entire Bible! Can you place yourself there, and imagine walking alongside our dear Lord when He said this? What would your reaction be upon hearing this?
This would be an a great bible passage to share with the Mormon in your life! Be sure to ask if they believe Joseph did a greater work than Jesus laying down His life, and taking it up again.
History of the Church 6:408; “History of the Church 6:408; “I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him; but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet.” – Joseph Smith, 26 May 1844
