Product Description

  • What impact did conversion to the gospel have for first century Gentiles?
  • How were the words of Jesus transmitted prior to the writing of the Gospels?
  • How do the epistles from Peter and John relate to those from Paul?
  • How can we know what messages the book of Revelation has for us today?
  • If you’ve wondered about such questions, you’ll value the answers in this book. A follow-up to the three-volume work The Life and Teachings of Jesus Christ, this book includes fourteen chapters by faithful Latter-day Saint scholars trained in various New Testament disciplines (ancient history, Greek and Latin, Roman civilization, geography). They share up-to- the-minute research on the ministry of these remarkable missionaries and leaders. The risen Lord commanded His disciples to take the message of His suffering, death, and resurrection to all the world. This book helps readers see how that commandment was fulfilled — and inspires in us a desire to be witnesses of the Savior in our day.
