42 And it came to pass that I, Jacob, began to be old; and the record of this people being kept on the other plates of Nephi, wherefore, I conclude this record, declaring that I have written according to the best of my knowledge, by saying,
43 That the time passed away with us, and also our lives passed away, like as it were unto us a dream, we being a lonesome and a solemn people, wanderers, cast out from Jerusalem;
44 Born in tribulation, in a wilderness, and hated of our brethren, which caused wars and contentions; wherefore, we did mourn out our days.
45 And I, Jacob, saw that I must soon go down to my grave; wherefore, I said unto my son Enos, Take these plates.
46 And I told him the things which my brother Nephi had commanded me; and he promised obedience unto the commands.
47 And I make an end of my writing upon these plates, which writing has been small;
48 And to the reader I bid farewell, hoping that many of my brethren may read my words. Brethren, adieu.
Enos 1 1 Behold, it came to pass that I, Enos, knowing my father, that he was a just man: for he taught me in his language, and also in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
2 And blessed be the name of my God for it.
3 And I will tell you of the wrestle which I had before God, before I received a remission of my sins;
4 Behold I went to hunt beasts in the forest; and the words which I had often heard my father speak, concerning eternal life, and the joy of the saints, sunk deep into my heart.
5 And my soul hungered; and I kneeled down before my Maker, and I cried unto him in mighty prayer and supplication, for mine own soul;
6 And all the day long did I cry unto him; yea, and when the night came, I did still raise my voice high, that it reached the heavens.
7 And there came a voice unto me saying, Enos, thy sins are forgiven thee, and thou shalt be blessed.
8 And I, Enos, knew that God could not lie; wherefore, my guilt was swept away.
9 And I said, Lord, how is it done?
10 And he said unto me, because of thy faith in Christ, whom thou hast never before heard nor seen.
11 And many years pass away, before he shall manifest himself in the flesh; wherefore, go to, thy faith hath made thee whole.
12 Now, it came to pass that when I had heard these words, I began to feel a desire for the welfare of my brethren, the Nephites; wherefore, I did pour out my whole soul unto God for them.
13 And while I was thus struggling in the spirit, behold, the voice of the Lord came unto my mind again, saying,
14 I will visit thy brethren, according to their diligence in keeping my commandments.
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;"
"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.
