“He Did Show Himself Unto Them Oft”

Brant Gardner

Mormon continues with his personally testimony. In this he gives us important information about the Savior’s visit to the Nephites in Bountiful. There were three days in a row in which the Savior was with them, but the experience of the New World saints was not limited to three days. The Savior also appeared “oft.” We do not know what “oft” means, other than it certainly indicates a continuation of the experience. Interestingly, Mormon tells us very little of the events of the third day. Verses 14 and 16 below comprise our only information. In contrast that third day, we have all of chapters 27 and 28 that refer to events from Jesus subsequent appearances to the apostles only.
