The Prophet Isaiah Foretells Christ's Birth -By Harry Anderson

Jesus Came As a Tiny Babe Just Like the Rest of Us. -by Greg K. Olsen

Mosiah, Chapter 14:1 YEA, even doth not Isaiah say: Who hath believed our report, and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?

2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground; he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, How Oft I Would Have Gathered you." -by Greg K. Olsen
4 Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we, like sheep, have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquities of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb so he opened not his mouth.

The Crucifixion -by Harry Anderson
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment; and who shall declare his generation? For he was cut off out of the land of the living; for the transgressions of my people was he stricken.

The Burial of Christ -by Carl Heinrich Bloch

9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no evil, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief; when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. (emphasis added)

"He Shall See His Seed." Jesus Teaching the Nephites in Ancient America After His Resurrection -By John Scott
Abinadi , a prophet from the Book of Mormon quoted the above words of TODAY'S THEME to wicked King Noah and his court. Abinadi may have first learned about the saving grace of Jesus Christ from King Benjamin which was also taught by the Prophet, Isaiah.
King Benjamin, who had access to the scriptures that were recorded on the Plates of Brass which were brought by Lehi and his family to Central America would have known well the words of Isaiah we have given above. Those words in TODAY'S THEME were a part of the Nephite's scriptures as well as a part of our Old Testament. The prophesies of Isaiah were both in the Nephite scriptures and in the Old Testament.

There will be at least one more post featuring prophecies from the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ regarding our Savior's mission here on earth and in the future too.

I just wanted to let you know how much I love your blog. I love the pictures and the insight that you share! I left it up the other day and my four year old climbed up to look at the picture of Jesus and when I came into the room he was telling his younger brother about Jesus and the Book Of Mormon. So thank you!
