Passage: 1 Nephi 1:102 - 1 Nephi 1:122

102 Let us go up; the Lord is able to deliver us, even as our fathers, and to destroy Laban even as the Egyptians.
103 Now when I had spoken these words, they were yet wroth, and did still continue to murmur; nevertheless they did follow me up until we came without the walls of Jerusalem.
104 And it was by night: and I caused that they should hide themselves without the walls.
105 And after they had hid themselves, I, Nephi, crept into the city, and went forth towards the house of Laban.
106 And I was led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which I should do.
107 Nevertheless I went forth, and as I came near unto the house of Laban, I beheld a man, and he had fallen to the earth before me, for he was drunken with wine.
108 And when I came to him I found that it was Laban.
109 And I beheld his sword, and I drew it forth from the sheath thereof, and the hilt thereof was of pure gold, and the workmanship thereof was exceeding fine: and I saw that the blade thereof was of the most precious steel.
110 And it came to pass that I was constrained by the Spirit that I should kill Laban;
111 But I said in my heart, Never at any time have I shed the blood of man, and I shrunk and would that I might not slay him.
112 And the Spirit said unto me again, Behold the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands; yea, and I also knew that he had sought to take away mine own life; yea, and he would not hearken unto the commandments of the Lord; and he also had taken away our property.
113 And it came to pass that the Spirit said unto me again, Slay him, for the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands.
114 Behold the Lord slayeth the wicked to bring forth his righteous purposes.
115 It is better that one man should perish, than that a nation should dwindle and perish in unbelief.
116 And now, when I, Nephi, had heard these words, I remembered the words of the Lord which he spake unto me in the wilderness, saying, That inasmuch as thy seed shall keep my commandments, they shall prosper in the land of promise.
117 Yea, and I also thought that they could not keep the commandments of the Lord according to the law of Moses, save they should have the law.
118 And I also knew that the law was engraven upon the plates of brass.
119 And again, I knew that the Lord had delivered Laban into my hands for this cause, that I might obtain the records according to his commandments.
120 Therefore I did obey the voice of the Spirit, and took Laban by the hair of the head, and I smote off his head with his own sword.
121 And after I had smitten off his head with his own sword, I took the garments of Laban and put them upon mine own body; yea, even every whit; and I did gird on his armor about my loins.
122 And after I had done this, I went forth unto the treasury of Laban.

Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus

Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.

Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:

 

"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"

--Ether 1:112

 

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

--Zechariah 12:10
