Key to Theology, pp. 35,Baal and El from the Ugarit 44; “Jesus Christ…was filled with the divine substance or fluid called the Holy Spirit, by which He comprehended and spake the truth in power and authority, and by which He controlled the elements and imparted health and life to those who were prepared to partake of the same…The purest, most refined and subtle of all these substances and the one least understood or even recognized by the less informed among mankind is that substance called the Holy Spirit.” – Parley P. Pratt

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.”

Woes to the Scribes and PhariseesAs 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!

Luke 4:17-21; “And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.”

The Occult in Mormonism and the Life of Joseph SmithLiahona, ‘Commonly Asked Questions,’ October 2010; “Why is symbolism used in the temple?

During His earthly ministry, the Savior often taught in parables to represent eternal truths symbolically. He has directed that we be taught in a similar way in the temple. There is symbolism in the temple ordinances and covenants, their presentation, the physical setting, and the clothing worn. If you ponder the meaning of these symbols with the guidance of the Holy Ghost, they can help you recognize truth, learn about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and grow spiritually.”

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 Bruce McConkieMormon Doctrine, p. 343; “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), bruce mcconkiealluded 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. 343.

Christ

Mormon Decisions 10Encyclopedia of Mormonism, pg 257; “CHRIST. According to Catholic belief, Jesus was born of a virgin, and is the “Incarnate Son of God.” As both God and man, he is the “Savior of the World.” For Latter-day Saints Christ was not, is not now, and never will be united in nature or substance with the Father. His oneness with the Father is spiritual in spirit, purpose, and mind. Jesus, in LDS belief, is the Only Begotten Son of the Father in the flesh. He entered mortality, subject to growth as well as being, and fulfilled the will of the Father as exemplar, savior, and mediator. He was not given all power on earth and in heaven until he received the fulness of the glory of the Father (see –>Godhead).”

Hebrews 1:3; “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.”

January 4 – “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.   John 14:6

So it’s not because you’re a Pentecostal, or the neighbor’s a Baptist or maybe your aunt is a Methodist.  It’s because He is the Savior of man, not the name over the doorway.

Mormons believe “because the Lord called Joseph Smith, salvation is again available to mortal men”.  Mormon Doctrine pg. 396-Bruce McConkie
