Jesus Christ

Jesus, the Son of God, is our Savior.

Jesus lived to teach us, and He died to save us from sin and death. Because of Him we can be forgiven, we can overcome challenges, and we can live with God again.

...

See what's possible because of Him. (2:45)

Common Questions

Yes. Jesus is the foundation of the gospel. In fact, members of the Church call it The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to both honor Him and to signify whose Church it is and whose example to follow.

Jesus has many names and titles. Learning them can help us better understand who He is and what He did for us. A few of His names and titles are Jehovah, the Savior, the Redeemer, the Son of God, the Messiah, the King of kings, and so on.

Jesus was born in a stable in Bethlehem, a city in Palestine. Because He was born far from home where no inns were available, Jesus was born in a humble stable and laid to rest in a manger (Luke 2:11).

As was custom at the time in Jerusalem, Jesus was laid to rest in a tomb, a small cave in the side of a rock. His body was wrapped in clean linen “with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury” (John 19:40). The tomb was in a garden not far from where Jesus was crucified. A large stone was rolled against the tomb to seal it shut.

Jesus performed many miracles during His life on earth and still does to this day. Miracles are a beautiful part of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and all who have faith qualify to receive them.

No one really knows when Jesus’s Second Coming will be. What we do know is that He will come again. Angels declared to His Apostles, “This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11). In Matthew 24:7 we learn that we can expect famines, earthquakes, and wars before He comes again.
