The Atonement of Christ (D&C 19)

“Atonement of Jesus Christ,” Jeffrey R. Holland, Encyclopedia of Mormonism

“Bowels of Mercy,” John Durham Peters, BYU Studies, Vol. 38, no. 4 (1999)
Christ died to awake a moral transformation of our beings; the Atonement not only reconciled humanity to God but God to humanity. The Atonement is in this view less a settling of cosmic accounts than part of God’s education, so to speak, an experience he needed to conceive empathy with the human family, an immersion in pain not unlike what all in their second estate must experience—a condescension.

The roles, attributes, and titles of Christ

“Man Was Also in the Beginning with God,” Matthew McBride, Revelations in Context
Section 93 (received May 6, 1833) teaches us much about Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ, Joseph Smith was told, had progressed to become like His Father. He “received not of the fulness at the first” but “continued from grace to grace” until He received His Father’s fulness. Likewise, humankind had godlike potential.
