Happy Easter!

(excerpt from a talk given by Gordon B. Hinckley in 2000)
"When all is said and done, when all the legions of the ages have passed in review, when man’s terrible inhumanity to man has been chronicled, when God’s great love for His children has been measured, then above all stands the lone figure of Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the world, the Savior of mankind, the living Son of the living God, the Prince of Peace, the Holy One.
... He came to earth. He walked the dusty roads of Palestine, teaching the people, healing the sick, causing the blind to see, raising the dead, giving His life on Calvary’s cross, and rising on the third day to “become the firstfruits of them that slept” (
1 Cor. 15:20).
...Declared the Prophet [Joseph Smith], without equivocation, without uncertainty, but with the confirmation that came of actual experience:
“And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him,
this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives!
“For we saw him, even on the right hand of God; and we heard the voice
bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father—
“That by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created,
and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God”
