Robert D Hales October 2006 Holy Scriptures: 'The Power of God unto Our Salvation.'

If the Savior were among us in the flesh today, He would teach us from the scriptures as He taught when He walked upon the earth. In the synagogue at Nazareth, “there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. … And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” Luke 4:17-21 Later when the Sadducees and Pharisees posed a difficult question, “Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.” Matthew 22:29 And after His Resurrection, on the road to Emmaus, His disciples “said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?” Luke 24:32 To His disciples then and now, His words ring out: “Search the scriptures; for … they are they which testify of me” John 5:39 —a testimony borne by the Holy Ghost, for “by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.” Moroni 10:5
