Jesus Christ: Life and Mission
On this website about Jesus Christ, we hope you’ll find posts that speak about who Jesus Christ really is, who He has revealed Himself in ancient and modern times, to be–even the Savior of the World, the Son of God, who sits at the right hand of God, and who knows each of us and is personally involved in our lives. We hope you come to know Jesus as your personal Advocate, who atoned for each of us and who stands in a position to plead our cause before the Father and to intercede in our daily lives through his grace and power.
This website on Jesus Christ, and corresponding Christ.org Facebook page are intended as a place for you to join with others in conversation about who the Savior Jesus Christ is, how He impacts your life, and to reach out to others who may have questions about Him or the reality of His life, ministry, atoning sacrifice, and resurrection. We invite thoughtful questions from honest seekers and followers of Jesus Christ.
Jesus.Christ.org is a site to which you can refer your friends and family of any faith–including those who may not be Christian–and, as well, any who may be asking what Mormons believe about Jesus Christ.

The Synoptic Gospels-Matthew, Mark, and Luke-contain a significant number of similarities in wording and order of events as they relate the life of Jesus Christ. Some of those similarities are rather distant, but other parallels are so significant that it appears that...read more
The New Testament contains the earliest sources for information about Jesus Christ-- Jesus of Nazareth. Some of the material, such as Paul's letters, was written as early as AD 48 or 49 and shortly thereafter (Galatians, 1-2 Thessalonians, and 1-2 Corinthians). The...read more
The Dead Sea Scrolls, an unknown number of ancient Jewish texts discovered near the Dead Sea beginning in 1947, were preserved by a group of Jews who did not accept Jesus' call to "repent" and "believe" the "good news" (Mark 1:15). Despite sensational claims, the...read more
