Mother of God

is mary the mother of god


1 Nephi 11:18: “And he said unto me, Behold, the virgin which thou seest, is the mother of God, after the manner of the flesh.” 1 Nephi 11:21: “And the angel said unto me, behold the Lamb of God, yea, even the Eternal Father!” 1 Nephi 11:32: “And I looked and beheld the Lamb of God, that he was taken by the people; yea, the Everlasting God, was judged of the world…” 1 Nephi 13:40: “…and shall make known to all kindreds, tongues, and people, that the Lamb of God is the Eternal Father and the Savior of the world…” –from the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon. In modern editions, “the Son of” has been inserted into each of these verses.

COMMENTARY: Of course, had the first vision actually occurred, Joseph would have recognized immediately that the trinitarian view of god was incorrect. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
