“Confer the Kingdom Upon One of His Sons”

Benjamin knew of no greater honor that could be conferred upon his people than that they bear the name of their master and Savior, the Christ, and that they through the adoption of righteousness become his sons and daughters. Such was the setting in which Mosiah was consecrated (anointed) as their king in the stead of his father. How like that great and grand council of heaven this must have been, where the Eternal Father chose his most righteous Son to be our king, and where we placed ourselves under covenant to sustain him as such!
