Mormon Identities is a program about real Latter-day Saints as they live the restored gospel of Jesus Christ in the world today. We explore how the gospel shapes our identities in episodes dealing with our communitites, culture, scriptures, doctrines, life experiences, and challenges.
Brent Top is once again our guest as he and Robert Millet discuss the doctrine of the redemption of the dead. They begin by quoting a New Testament scripture from 1st Peter, chapters three and four. As noted in these chapters Jesus Christ visited the spirit world to redeem those who had lived before His death. Bob and Brent explore the difficulty of fully understanding these scriptures without latter-day revelation. They also talk of President Joseph F. Smith's clear and defining vision of the "Redemption of the Dead," from section 138 of the Doctrine and Covenants.
