“According to the Word of Jesus”

W. Cleon Skousen

This last verse would indicate that the miraculous manner in which the lives of the three transfigured disciples were preserved actually did convert their persecutors. This is supported by 4 Nephi 1:2 where it says: "the people were all converted unto the Lord, upon all the face of the land." There is also the statement of the Savior in 3 Nephi 27:31 where he refers to all of "them who are now alive of this generation; and none of them are lost."
