RE: “the Son of man” must suffer many things, and be rejected of the
elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three
days rise again.(Mark 8:31)“the Son of man” came with the
clouds of heaven, and came to the “Ancient of days”=(God the
Father)…(Daniel 7:13). The Son of man is a Messianic title. Jesus
was fully God (John 1:1), but He was also a human being (John 1:14). Hypostatic
union.Re: User41,What a great world this would be if we would all
sincerely try to follow that divine Christ, spoken of in our scriptures see:
D&C 27:11; 116:1; 138:38 all state that “ Adam is the Ancient of Days.
Interesting, Thanks Dr. Peterson. Your articles are always my favorite part of
this site.We're very blessed to have the clarity of the Gospel
by way of the Book of Mormon. You can't sincerely read it & miss the
fact that Jesus Christ is the divine Son of God and paid the price for our sins.
The Bible states as much, but with the additional witness of the Book of Mormon
-- it's too clear to miss. What a great world this would be if we would all
sincerely try to follow that divine Christ, spoken of in our scriptures.
RE: Jesus' predictions of his own death must have been inserted into the
Gospel accounts after his crucifixion, because, they say, no such ideas existed
in Judaism: For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have
inclosed me: they pierced my hands and feet.(Psalm 22:16) .But he
was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the
punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are
healed.(Isa 53:5) “I will pour out on the house of David and
on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, ]the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so
that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him,
as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the
bitter weeping over a firstborn Zech (12:10)Re: “Son of
man” came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the “Ancient of
days”=(God)…(Daniel 7:13) Explained in the (Talmud, sanhedrin
98a)that if Israel behaved worthily, the Messiah would come in the clouds of
heaven; if otherwise, humble and riding upon an (donkey).
