None Were with Him

This video shows an excerpt from my favorite talk from General Confernece that happened last week. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, a modern day apostle, describes and testifies of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. He speaks vividly and specifically about the loneliness of our Savior as He performed His greatest miracle, the ransom of our souls. How thankful I am for His sacrifice and for modern witnesses of His divinity.

The rest of the talk can be found here.

The Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and his counsellors also released the following reaffirming witness:

At this Easter season of hope and renewal we testify of the glorious reality of the atonement and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The empty tomb brought comforting assurance and provided the answer to the question of Job, “If a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14).

Because of the Savior’s resurrection we will overcome death and become the beneficiaries of His mercy and grace. In a world of trouble and uncertainty, His peace fills our hearts and eases our minds. Jesus is in very deed “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).

We give our sure witness that Jesus is the Christ. Though He was crucified, He rose triumphant from the tomb to our everlasting blessing and benefit. To each member of the human family He stands as our Advocate, our Savior, and our Friend.
