The Brother Of Jared
“Behold, I am he who was prepared from the foundation of the world to redeem my people. Behold, I am Jesus Christ. I am the Father and the Son. In me shall all mankind have life, and that eternally, even they who shall believe on my name; and they shall become my sons and my daughters.” ~Ether 3: 14
Many years before Lehi and his family were commanded to leave Jerusalem, the Lord led away another branch of Israel to the Promised Land. Traveling by boat again, barges, this time, the Brother of Jared asks,”…O Lord…thou hast all power, and can do whatsoever thou wilt for the benefit of man; therefore touch these stones, O Lord, with thy finger, and prepare them that they may shine forth in darkness; and they shall shine forth unto us in the vessels which we have prepared, that we may have light while we shall cross the sea.” (Ether 3: 4)
So great was his faith in Jesus Christ that he beheld the Lord’s finger and also that the Redeemer has a body of flesh and blood.
