“All Things Had Become New”

W. Cleon Skousen

In this chapter Jesus refers to two of God's great secrets which are not found in any other scripture. First, however, he wants to explain something he had mentioned earlier which was very disturbing to some of the people.

The things which Jesus had said which some of the Nephites found disturbing are in 3 Nephi 12:46-48 wherein he stated: "Those things which were of old time, which were under the law, in me are all fulfilled. [These] old things are done away, and all things have become new. Therefore, I would that ye should be perfect even as I, or your Father who is in heaven is perfect."
