And now Father, I pray unto thee for them . . . that I may be in them as thou, Father, art in me, that we may be one.
Generations of prophecy are fulfilled when Jesus Christ visits the people of the Book of Mormon following his crucifixion and resurrection. In his short time among these other sheep, Christ teaches about the path of discipleship, inaugurating a centuries-long period of righteous peace and prosperity in Nephite society.
In this brief theological introduction, Daniel Becerra enlists 3 and 4 Nephi as aids in the disciple s pursuit of Christ and Christlikeness. What do these books reveal about divine nature, human nature, and the means of bridging the gap between the two?
Becerra places Christ at the center of all theological thinking in his interpretation of these remarkable books of scripture. He proposes that the fullest expression of discipleship Christlikeness can only be found in community and collaboration.
Daniel Becerra is an assistant professor of ancient scripture at Brigham Young University and is a scholar of early Christianity.
