When did Jesus Christ Understand His Mission as Savior?

You made it to the second episode of the Mormon Messenger Podcast. Our show is designed to promote faith, devotion, and greater gospel scholarship for members of the church and provide a faithful perspective on some of today’s most interesting topics facing Latter-day Saints.


In this episode we discussed two points:

  • Opportunities to serve online from wherever your are regardless of your skills and background through www.vineyard.lds.org (click on the link to see a 44 second video explaining what Jim and I tried to explain in the podcast)
  • At what point during His earthly ministry, did Jesus Christ realize his mediating role as the Savior of all mankind?
  • A reminder that Jim and I do not represent any official opinion of the Church. We have no authority or responsibility to declare the doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Thank you for the download and taking the time to increase your gospel knowledge with us this week.  While we do our best to promote the church on this show, this is not an official publication of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  So don’t take what we say as the gospel truth.  See you next Sunday!
