"The challenge of Jesus was to replace the rigid, technical 'thou shalt not' of the law of Moses that the spiritually immature children of Israel needed with the spirit of the 'better testament,'" writes President James E. Faust in his chapter "A Surety of a Better Testament."
Drawn from more than three decades of Sidney B. Sperry Symposia held at Brigham Young University, twenty-six authors expand our understanding of the life of Jesus Christ, the culture in which He lived, and the obstacles He and His Apostles confronted in trying to teach the higher law of Jesus Christ. These insightful essays written by General Authorities and religious educators illuminate the New Testament as they testify that Jesus is the Christ, the Risen and Redeeming Lord, the Savior of the world.
