1 Timothy 4:1; “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”

Matthew 22:41-42; “While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them 42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.”
As we’re coming closer to Easter and Holy Week, I’ve been pondering on events in Jerusalem at this time 2,000 years ago. It’s easy to get caught up in my own traditions and lose sight of the long range ideals of the Lord, so to slow down I plop myself into 33 AD.
With that in mind, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the prophetic events of that first Easter, so over the next few weeks we’ll be exploring the significance of several events. We’ll see how they all pointed directly to their fulfillment in just one person, that being Christ Jesus our Lord. The goal is to find out what people at that time thought of Jesus. What were the concerns of different groups like the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Scribes? What about the average Jew living at the time?
Moreover, what about the Mormons of today? What do they think of Christ, and what are their thoughts on the events 2,000 years ago? So here we go!
Matthew 15:9; “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
Today we’re asking how the Church uses this all important name. We’re looking at Mormon Doctrine, written by Bruce McConkie, once a leading authority in the LDS Church.
Mormon Doctrine, p. 269; “See CHRIST, VIRGIN BIRTH. Christ is Immanuel, Emmanuel the King Immanuel (D. & C. 128:22), signifying literally, God is with us. This designation used by Isaiah in a great Messianic prophecy (Isa. 7:14), alluded to by Micah as referring to the birth of our Lord (Mic. 5:3), and specifically named by Matthew as having reference to the Virgin Birth (Matt. 1:18-25), signifies that Christ as God would be born into mortality of a virgin and would be with men to save and redeem them.”
Note: the reference for the link above comes from the online version of Mormon Doctrine, p. 269. Gospelink, and other versions of Mormon Doctrine list ‘Immanuel’ on p. 376.

We could sit at our computers all day, every day of the year to write and publish articles and that’d be okay. However, none of those articles mean anything or can do anything if we don’t have the right understanding of Jesus.

The Mormon Jesus
Along with our look at the occult symbols on the Mormon temples, we’re going to be taking a look at the Mormon Jesus for the next few days. Who is or was he? What does he represent? Where is this Jesus from? When did he live and why? What is his purpose for the Mormon people?
