Getting to know Jesus Christ

Late 2010, I was taking a short class on Public Domain materials, or what was available for free reading.  I came across a book in the Public Domain that I had read over 35 years ago called, "Jesus The Christ" by James E. Talmage and decided it was time to read it again.  When I read it years ago, I remember the feeling it gave me, and how I loved getting to know the Savior better.  I wanted to have that spiritual feeling all over again. 

James Talmage was an Apostle of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the early 1900's. He wrote this study of the Messiah and His Mission under the request and appointment of the presiding authorities of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  He wrote this sacred book in an upper room office while in the Salt Lake City Temple.

Most of you are not members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called "Mormons"), but I promise that you won't be disappointed with what you read, if you choose to read Jesus the Christ.  You will never be the same in your spirit and in your knowledge of Jesus Christ.  You will understand more about Jesus Christ and love Him more than than you ever thought possible.

There are 42 chapters in this book.  I've added my thoughts and underlining and bolding, so you will be getting a bit of my take on what I'm reading and feeling as I read.  I recommend that you keep a journal of your thoughts and feelings too.  This is my gift to you.  May the blessings of a testimony of our Savior, His life and His Atonement, be yours.

Dear God, 
So far, today, I've done all right.  I haven't gossiped or lost my temper.  I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, or self centered.  I'm really happy about that so far.  But in a few minutes I'm going to be getting out of bed and then I'm going to need a lot of help.  Thank you!   Amen
 

 

THE MEANING OF LIFE  WHAT IS THE PLAN OF SALVATION?

Life Before Birth   Where do we come from?
What's the Purpose of Life?   Why are we here?
Where do we go when we die?   What will happen to us when we die?
Everyone will have an opportunity   What about people who didn't know?
The Full Blessing  Life can be short for some.  What about babies who die?
