Unit 4: Jesus Christ as Our Savior
Chapter 11: The Life of Jesus Christ
Comments and Resources "President David O. McKay stated: "The gospel teaches that Christ is the Son of God, the Redeemer of the world. No true follower is satisfied to accept him merely as a great Reformer, the ideal Teacher, or even as the one perfect Man. The Man of Galilee is not figuratively, but literally, the Son of the living God." (Gospel Ideals, p. 46) "Whether descriptively designated as Creator, Only Begotten Son, Prince of Peace, Advocate, Mediator, Son of God, Savior, Messiah, Author and Finisher of Salvation, King of Kings-- I witness that Jesus Christ is the only name under Whereby one can be saved!  D&C 18:23"Behold, Jesus Christ is the name which is given of the Father, and there is none other name given whereby man can be saved;" "I testify that He is utterly incomparable in what He is, what He knows, what He has accomplished, and what He has experienced. Yet, movingly, He calls us His friends. John 15:15"Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you." "We can trust, worship, and even adore Him without any reservation!  As the only Perfect person to sojourn on this planet, there is none like Him!  Isaiah 46:9"Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me," (Neal A. Maxwell, "O, O Divine Redeemer," Ensign, Nov. 1981, p. 8) During the study of this topic, we will review some of the highlights of the Savior's Life and ways in which his life is a model of our own life.

Moroni 10:4-5
  "4 And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.
  5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things."
