The Crucifixion

Learning more about the Savior’s Crucifixion can help us come closer to Jesus Christ and find increased peace and happiness through him. President James E. Faust taught, “Any increase in our understanding of [Christ’s] atoning sacrifice draws us closer to Him.” Better understanding any aspect of Christ’s Atonement—including his Crucifixion—can deepen our relationship with him. And the stronger our relationship with the Savior, the more we can feel his mercy and grace. Through him, we can experience greater love, joy, and strength in our lives.

Among Christ’s first words when he visited the Nephites were “Come forth…that ye may know that I…have been slain for the sins of the world” (3 Nephi 11:14, emphasis added). When defining his gospel he said, “My Father sent me that I might be lifted up upon the cross” (3 Nephi 27:14, emphasis added).

Some of us might not have yet carefully studied the Savior’s gift from Golgotha, perhaps focusing on other important aspects of his Atonement. The purpose of this page is to provide resources to deepen your study of the life-changing power of Christ’s Crucifixion.

Considering The Cross

Over the past three years I’ve been writing the book Considering the Cross: How Calvary Connects Us with Christ. It’s been an exhilarating process, in which I’ve felt continual inspiration—I hope you’ll feel inspired as you read it.

This study of the cross in the restored gospel is a must-read!

This book truly deepened my love for and appreciation of the Savior.
