#BOMSummer DAY 30, Mosiah 14-17: “A Wonder World of Complexity and Beauty”

#BOMSummer Day 30, Neal A. Maxwell, “Joseph, the Seer,” Ensign, Nov. 1983

Mosiah 14-17

Elder Neal A. Maxwell:

Theology and beauty combine, again and again, in the pages provided through Joseph, as when the resurrected Christ appeared in the Western Hemisphere:

‘And when [Jesus] had said these words, he himself also knelt upon the earth; and behold he prayed unto the Father, and the things which he prayed cannot be written. …

‘And no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto the Father.’ (3 Ne. 17:15–17.)

Serious study of the blessed Book of Mormon admits one to a wonder world of complexity and beauty, even in the midst of the book’s simple, but powerful, spiritual refrain. We are given that which we most need—yet we are athirst for more! (“Joseph, the Seer,” Ensign, Nov. 1983)
