"While Jesus and his disciples were at or near Caesarea Philippi, Peter testified that Jesus was ¿the Christ, the Son of the living God.¿ Martha had a similar divine testimony, proclaiming, ¿I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God.¿ In much the same way, a standard part of Latter-day Saint discourse includes bearing testimony that ¿Jesus is the Christ,¿ but what do we mean when we say that Jesus is the Christ? This volume compiles essays given at a BYU Sidney B. Sperry Symposium that uniquely address such questions from a Latter-day Saint perspective, bringing together both biblical scholarship and Restoration insights that invite us to come to Christ and apply gospel teachings to real life."
