Enjoying The Feelings Of The Spirit

Just before the last General Conference of the Mormon Church, the church made available for purchase “The Testaments of One Fold and One Shepherd.”


Previously, this movie was only shown at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building on Temple Square. “This film depicts events from the life and ministry of Jesus Christ as recorded in the New Testament and the Book of Mormon. The story culminates with a portrayal of the resurrected Savior’s visit to the ancient Americas as seen through the eyes of a fictional family.”

The movie is well done. The actors are good and the scenery is beautiful. But more than anything else, there is such a calming feeling while watching this movie. As it shows different miracles and events in the life of Christ, you can feel the Spirit cradle your heart. In the last scenes of the movie, the viewer is shown a depiction of Christ visiting His people in the Americas. The visit really took place and is described in a chapter of the Book of Mormon. This is a wondreful depiction of it.

I actually found this section of the movie on youtube here. It picks up just after Jesus was crucified and the whole world mourned in darkness. Christ visits the people, including the fictional family. There is one scene that especially overpowers me each time. I love it.


If you aren’t familiar with the teachings of the Mormon church and would like to learn more about it, please use my contact page and let me know. I’d love to talk with you about it. I’d be happy to send you this video on DVD and a Book of Mormon as a gift.
