“I Am the God of Israel”

Alan C. Miner

The resurrected Jesus, whom the Nephites heard and saw, was and is the same Jehovah who was seen and heard by Moses and other ancient prophets. He is the great "I Am" (see Exodus 3:14; John 8:56-58); the "Holy One of Israel" (see Isaiah 45:11-15; 2 Nephi 25:29); the "Shepherd of Israel" (see Psalm 80:1; Isaiah 40:11; John 10:11,14-18).
