#BOMSummer DAY 18, 2 Nephi 27-28: “The Principal and Commanding Figure”

#BOMSummer Day 18, Jeffrey R. Holland, Christ and the New Covenant

2 Nephi 27-28

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland:

The principal and commanding figure in the Book of Mormon, from first chapter to last, is the Lord Jesus Christ. … The book centers upon that which scriptural testaments have always centered since the days of Adam and Eve—the declaration to all that through the atonement of the Son of God, ‘as thou hast fallen thou mayest be redeemed, and all mankind, even as many as will’ [Moses 5:9]. …

… The Book of Mormon is the preeminent statement of God’s covenant with and his love for his children here on earth. It is his definitive latter-day declaration regarding the atoning sacrifice of his Son (Christ and the New Covenant: The Messianic Message of the Book of Mormon [1997], 3–4).
