We Rejoice in Christ: A Bibliography of LDS Writings on Jesus Christ and the New Testament




Toward the end of his life, the ancient prophet Nephi summarized his spiritual ministry in the following words: ⿿And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins⿿ (2 Nephi 25:26). Nephi⿿s joy in Christ motivated generations of his faithful descendants. That same spirit also resonates in the messages and testimonies of modern Latter-day Saints, as this collection of books and articles abundantly demonstrates. Part I of this bibliography lists a broad range of talks, essays, and studies by Latter-day Saints about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ as reported in the New Testament Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. In some cases, the articles listed elaborate on a single phrase or a specific event in the Gospels; in other cases, these works discuss a broad concept or an extended segment from the ministry of Jesus. Part II of this publication covers the writings of Latter-day Saints about the New Testament from Acts to Revelation. This smaller, yet still significant, number of LDS books, papers, and speeches focuses on the lives and teachings of the early Apostles of Jesus Christ, particularly Paul, Peter, James, and John. The materials encompassed here range from scholarly to devotional. Collectively, they show that Latter-day Saints have always had a deep interest in the life of the Savior and a profound reverence for his words of eternal life found in the New Testament. While we have attempted to be inclusive as we have assembled this data, many more items could be added. Despite inevitable shortcomings, BYU Studies is pleased to distribute this information. Additions, corrections, or other suggestions to help expand and improve subsequent versions of this bibliography are always welcome.
