"Of all things of heaven and earth of which we bear testimony, none is so important as our witness that Jesus, the Christmas child, condescended to come to earth from the realms of his Eternal Father, here to work among men as healer and teacher, our Great Exemplar. And further, and most important, he suffered on Calvary's cross as an atoning sacrifice for all mankind."

President Gordon B. Hinckley, "The Son of God," Ensign, December 1992, p. 2
