ABOUT THE AUTHOR

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.

Our Savior Jesus Messiah
Volume I


The subject of this three-volume work is expressed on the title page, Our Savior Jesus Messiah. The subtitle, A Portrait of Jesus Christ with Mormon Perspective, personifies the picture in this manuscript.

I, Bryan Young Weight am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as The Church of Jesus Christ, The Mormon Church, The LDS Church, or simply The Church). Although there may be room for alternate opinions, my personal perspective and assertion that Jesus is everyone’s Savior and Messiah is based upon scripture. Come with me and together we will explore the scriptures that identify our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ as the Messiah.

Masiah (Messiah) in Hebrew and Christos (Christ) in Greek are identical in meaning and both signify “anointed.” Our Savior Jesus Messiah attempts to bridge what some people perceive as a gap between the Old and New Testaments by aligning their respective witnesses. Our Savior Jesus Messiah explains what it is that Jesus was “anointed” to do before birth and what He did in mortality to initiate grace, forgiveness of sin, and make salvation possible. The Old and New Testaments are unified on these subjects.

Volume I in the book series Our Savior Jesus Messiah explores the Father’s plan of salvation for His children and our relationship to Him. It portrays life before coming to earth, the purpose of mortality, life after death, and our unlimited potential in eternity. The key role of the “Anointed One” is discussed in the Father’s plan of salvation; that is, the Messiah would offer grace, salvation, and forgiveness in exchange for sin so the Devil / Satan could be vanquished for eternity. In summary, Christ would enter mortality to nullify the effects of physical and spiritual death. What’s more, the first volume addresses special contingencies in the plan for those who do not have fair opportunity to learn of Jesus Christ in this life. The text includes discussion on eternal life for all little children who die without baptism because Jesus would atone for original sin. Moreover, scriptural information is provided on those spirits that opposed the Father’s plan, and how Satan and his devil angels became fiends of the infernal pit.

The first volume provides a scriptural foundation for understanding the benefits of Adam and Eve’s fall (transgression or original sin) in the Garden of Eden; the grace God extended to mankind after “the fall” through “the Anointed One;” the true nature of the Holy Trinity or, more accurately, the individual identities of the three Members in the quorum of God and their respective functions; the law of witnesses is clarified; details are given on how to discern between genuine priesthood authority from God and feigned authority plagiarized by man; and why it is important in eternity to fulfill priesthood ordinances such as baptism.

The first volume identifies surprising parallelisms between Jehovah in the Old Testament and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. These comparisons lead to the conclusion that Jehovah is the pre-mortal Jesus Christ. In addition, the Messianic birthright is explained and apparent conflicts in the genealogical accounts of Matthew and Luke are resolved. The role and mission of John the Baptist is defined. Volume I also contains analysis of Jesus’ preparations for the ministry, events at birth, early life, baptism, ordination, temptations, His initial gathering of disciples, and of course correlation with prophetic utterance.

After more than thirty years of personal research on the Messianic prophesies, Volume I is shared in hope that the reader will benefit from my own study. This enjoyable learning process was line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little (Is. 28:10). I enjoyed a sweet spirit of reverence, enlightenment, and inspiration during this delightful labor. I now invoke these same blessings upon those who delve into the pages beyond the foregoing overview. “And I pray the Father in the name of Christ that many of us, if not all, may be saved in his kingdom at that great and last day” (2 Ne. 33:12). May God bless all of us in our efforts to learn more about His Dearly Beloved Son, Our Savior Jesus Messiah.
