Product Description

While Jesus and his disciples were at or near Caesarea Philippi, Peter testified that Jesus was "the Christ, the Son of the living God." Martha had a similar divine testimony, proclaiming, "I believe that thou are the Christ, the Son of God." In much the same way, a standard part of Latter-day Saint discourse includes bearing testimony that "Jesus is the Christ," but what do we mean when we say that Jesus is the Christ?

This volume compiles essays given at BYU Sidney B. Sperry Symposium that uniquely address such questions from a Latter-day Saint perspective, bringing together both biblical scholarship and Restoration insights that invite us to come to Christ and apply gospel teachings to real life.
