President Russell M. Nelson, President Dallin H. Oaks, and President Henry B. Eyring have included a special First Presidency Easter message in the April 2023 Liahona magazine. You can find their message now on, in the Gospel Library mobile app, and in this article below.

“Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of our loving Father, is ‘the resurrection, and the life.’ His birth, life and death brought the promise that ‘he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live’ (John 11:25). During this Easter season, we invite all to ponder this glorious promise. Because He broke the bands of death, we each have the assurance of immortality and the hope of life eternal.

“The Savior’s great atoning sacrifice can give us hope for joy and peace not only in the life to come but also in the here and now as we face life’s inevitable challenges. Because of Him, we know that death is not the end. We know that our adversities will not last forever. We receive peace as we put our trust in Him. We have faith that eternal joy is possible.

“We testify that Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, lives! ‘He marked the path and led the way’ back to our Heavenly Father (‘How Great the Wisdom and the Love,’ Hymns, no. 195). How grateful we are for the gift of His Son, through whom we can qualify for His greatest gift—that of eternal life.”

President Nelson has also shared his personal testimony of the Atonement, Resurrection and hope in eternal life, in an article titled “Jesus Christ Is Our Savior” in the April 2023 Liahona magazine.
