Wow!! So powerful and touching! Thank you to my Savior!

Wonderful! We all need to remember this each day,

They both look like Coke commercials. Blending in, becoming mainstream, obviously the point here, but for an Easter video? I felt no spirit. Give the world some Mo Tab and some scripture and leave the Coke commercials to Coke.

one must understand the video and understand that Jesus Christ was much more than a carpenter, a teacher or a leader. He was the Son of the Living God and thus the Savior of the world. This video helps you to learn that above all else. One must accept that on faith and live your life accordingly but the greatest thing is that we can repent and be forgiven for our sins. The video makes that pretty clear. WOW and absolute hope.

Loved this! Very moving and so good to remember!

Jack, what both? Its one video....

Did you watch?

Chardon, OH

I agree with Jack. I thought I was watching a Youtube commercial until the real video was supposed to start. The first 40 seconds didn't seem to go with the last 2 minutes. I'm missing the connection.

Hey Jack,

I think that the ability or inability to feel the spirit is influenced just as much by the state of the heart of the individual as it is by the medium. If truth is presented, the Spirit can testify of it, regardless of the style in which it is presented. We can reject certain styles and say, I prefer a different style of conveying the truth. But why should we? Why can't the truth be presented in a wide variety of styles? If we are to argue that truth is only properly presented if done so the Motab and scriptures, aren't we limiting ourselves in the same way that some embrace the Bible as the only source of truth, while rejecting the Book of Mormon or other sources of revelation? What I love about our beliefs is our mission to discover truth where ever it can be found, not just in our preferred vehicles. Why then not embrace the presentation of the truth in a multitude of ways, including after the manner of a coke commercial?

The connection is that Christ's atonement and resurrection was more amazing than anything else that has happened in history. More amazing than any of those advances in technology: going to the moon, electricity, a laptop, etc... This is the single event in the history of the world that affects all of us on earth. It's pretty amazing, and this ad is perfect as is and I don't see a Coke commercial.

The violin work seems reminiscent of Lindsey Stirling's.

Centerville, UT

If ever there was a time in mankind's history when hope for a better world were needed it is now. What a remarkable film about the most remarkable man in history, even our Savior and Redeemer, who is the hope of all creation for this world and all the other worlds. He is the Captain of our Salvation and I testify that He lives! This Easter should be a great celebration of life; eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Glendora, CA

In today' new world of trendy discourse, Jesus Christ is rapidly becoming relegated to a mere "clever teacher", "just another prophet", etc. If this appears too much like a "Coke commercial", so be it. It still speaks the truth.

Hayden, ID

We need to remember that all people see the world,(and everything else) not as it is, but as they are!

Joan Watson

A greatly worthwhile and wonderful message that is charged with emotion and meaning that enters directly into the very soul of those who love our Savior, and redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Tooele, UT

Amen, and Amen. It is so. My whole soul loves Him. May he help me to be kinder to others...ALWAYS.

True Megalomaniac

Great video! But what about the headline? Aren't we supposed to stop referring to the Church as the LDS Church?

Jack, I'm so sorry you missed the point. This is an inspiring message we all need to remember. It gives hope to so many who struggle with life every day.

RE: bj-hp, Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.( Phil 2:5-8 NLT)). God becomes man not man become God.

E.g.. the virgin birth is unique: The Protevangelium, And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and HER seed(sperma,4690); it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel" (Genesis 3 :15).

But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent his Son- (G1096 – ginoma)= made of a Woman- born under law(Joseph)(Galatians 4:4 NIV).“

I was beginning to wonder if they still taught this sort of thing.
