What if Moroni had met his demise before he could hide the sacred gold plates in the Hill Cumorah? And what if William Tyndale’s translations of the Holy Bible had been destroyed by King Henry VIII?
Throughout ancient and modern history, prophets and disciples have made tremendous sacrifices, even with their own lives, to preserve the scriptures we have today. Without these individuals, our access to holy writ would be much more limited. In honor of these sacrifices, the Church has produced a 30-minute program that will air over general conference weekend April 5 on KSL-TV, Channel 5, in Salt Lake City at 1:30 p.m. and nationally on April 6 on BYUtv cable at noon MDT. KSL.com and BYUtv.com will also have live streams available.
The program is narrated by Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and was inspired by his April 2010 general conference talk, “The Blessing of Scripture.” The video focuses on the sacrifices made throughout history to preserve the word of God.
