First Book of Nephi Chapter 12

Jesus-Christ-Apostles-mormon
Christ Anointing His Twelve Apostles 

 

1 Nephi 12

1. 

Here’s Daniels commentary.

2. 

Thou rememberest the twelve apostles of the Lamb? Behold they are they who shall judge the twelve tribes of Israel

Apparently Christ’s Apostles were called to serve as judges to the Tribes of Israel. This is actually new knowledge to me. And, evidently, the Bible supports it. (Matthew 12:9)

3.

Because of their faith in the “Lamb of God,” they were made “righteous forever” and their garments “are made white in his blood.” (1 Nephi 12: 10)

One Mormon dogma teaches that we must have faith in Christ “first” before anything else can happen. (Articles of Faith 1:4)

If we don’t have faith in Christ, then nothing we do really matters.

Christ tells us that “If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” (Matthew 17:20)
