The Living Christ

"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." (John 16:33)

Jesus Christ will someday return to earth (Isaiah 40:5)
An old army saying reminds soldiers in combat that "The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing."  

But what is the main thing?  As far as faith is concerned, the Prophet Joseph Smith eliminated any doubt as to what the main thing is:

"The fundamental principles of our religion are the testimony of the Apostles and Prophets, concerning Jesus Christ, that He died, was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended into heaven and all other things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to it." (TPJS, 121)

The Prophet Joseph Smith

This was true in Joseph Smith's time, and it is true today.  

On January 1, 2000, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints published the testimony of the Apostles and Prophets concerning Jesus Christ in a document entitled The Living Christ: The Testimony of the Apostles.  

Like the prophetic document The Family: A Proclamation to the World (published in 1995), The Living Christ: The Testimony of the Apostles was prepared ahead of time for when we will need it most.
