Why is baptism necessary for us to receive eternal life? How does understanding the Savior’s life increase our appreciation for the covenants of baptism? Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles testifies that the Savior’s Atonement makes possible the cleansing of our sins through baptism. “That is an absolute requirement for every soul that would receive a fulness of the blessings offered us,” he says. “The Master Himself was baptized to fulfill all righteousness. He is our perfect example in all things.” Elder Scott bears witness of the Savior’s divinity, affirming that His sacrifice allows us to make redeeming covenants that enable us to return to our Heavenly Father.
As we celebrate the Easter season, the testimonies of prophets and apostles called as special witnesses of the Savior, always relevant, become particularly poignant. In this series, those testimonies are presented, beginning with the First Presidency and continuing through the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Powerful individually, when presented as a group these testimonies provide an undeniable witness that the Savior lives.
