What does it mean to take upon ourselves the name of Jesus Christ? Near the end of his life, King Benjamin delivered a final message to his people. As he explained to his son Mosiah, who would succeed him as king, his primary purpose in calling the people together was to give them “a name that never shall be blotted out, except it be through transgression” (Mosiah 1:12). An angel had given him the good news that Jesus Christ, the Son of God would come to save His people, and Benjamin wanted his people to be among those that were saved (Mosiah 3:8-9).
Here is an outline of King Benjamin’s sermon with my takeaways.
