I’m Bryan Weight, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Church members are called Latter-day Saints (LDS) or sometimes Mormons because we believe the Book of Mormon is scripture in addition to the Bible. I was raised in this faith since both my parents were active members of this Church. During my teenage years I wanted to find out if God was real. I also wanted to know if Jesus Christ was the Son of God and if the Church of my parents was as special as they claimed or just another denomination...
The ancient prophets in the Holy Bible wrote about our Savior in what amounts to be a Messianic code. Our Savior Jesus Messiah, A Portrait of Jesus Christ with Mormon Perspective is a scripture centered study on the Messianic Christ.
The unified testimonies on Jesus Messiah in the Old and New Testaments (the Holy Bible), the Book of Mormon and modern scripture verify that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb. 13:8). The Book of Mormon, Another Witness of Jesus Christ (Book of Mormon) is published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). When modern scriptures are used in conjunction with the Holy Bible, the Messianic prophesies on Jesus Christ become clear.
The threefold purposes of Jesus The Messiah,A Testament to Jesus Christ are:
To publicize Jesus Christ as the Only Begotten Son of God. The Redeemer and the Savior of the world.
To demonstrate that God continues to testify to the divinity of His Son through scripture (Holy Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price).
To present a uniquely Mormon perspective on Jesus Messiah as presented by this lay church member.
The above objectives are accomplished in Volumes I, II and III by presenting an abundance of quotations and references that enhance study of the Messianic Christ.
Volume I begins by sharing a personal experience followed by a stimulating definition for Holy Scripture. The manuscript then introduces the resources relied upon in this study. The first volume explores the Father’s plan for the salvation of His children and our relationship to Him. It portrays life before coming to earth, the purpose of mortality, what happens after death, and our limitless potential in eternity. The key role of the “Anointed One” is discussed in the Father’s plan; that is, the Messiah would atone for the sins and follies of man so that the effects of physical and spiritual death could be nullified...
Volume II opens by providing a brief overview of the Father’s plan for our salvation and His gift of agency, which are more fully explained in Volume I. Thereafter the second volume in this series continues to demonstrate that the ancient prophets of God believed in Jesus before the label “Christianity” existed. The Hebrew revelators not only spoke of the Messiah’s birth, they also wrote about events in His life and millennial reign. Volume II targets “in-life” prophecies or personal experiences in the lives of the prophets that foreshadow the mission and teachings of Jesus the Messiah...
Volume III examines the last week in the mortal Messiah’s life and closes with glorious views of the resurrected Savior’s return to earth and millennial reign. The third volume devotes considerable attention to the final days that preceded Jesus’ crucifixion. There is analysis of days“six” through “two” in the countdown towards Christ’s death. There is exploration into events surrounding the Last Supper, the Messiah’s arrest and trial, and expressions from the sacrificial Lamb of God as He languished on the cross.....
