Jesus Christ gives the power to baptize in newest episode of Book of Mormon Videos

Friday’s release marks the first of eight episodes to be released each week until the end of November

Before attending the set of the Book of Mormon Videos in June, Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles prepared for his visit by watching a preview of the series’ fourth season. 

“The Book of Mormon itself, and the Book of Mormon Videos are produced with the express purpose of bringing people closer to their Lord Jesus Christ,” Elder Rasband said in June.

He said he was excited to transition from watching the videos to seeing the sets, the crew and the actors who brought the series to life. 

Four months later, President Russell M. Nelson showed a trailer of the newest season in general conference and encouraged members of the Church to watch and share the videos with their family and friends. 

Jesus Christ teaches and gives power to baptize

Friday’s video covers 3 Nephi 11-12 from the Book of Mormon where the Savior taught the doctrine of baptism and gave the power to baptize to His Apostles.
