Abstract

Our Heavenly Father’s plan to give immortality and eternal life to His children required a Savior (see Moses 1:39). In the premortal council in heaven, the Beloved Son volunteered to be this Savior with the words, “Father, thy will be done” (Moses 4:2). The Beloved Son is called Jehovah in the Old Testament. He is the one who created the heavens and the earth, who gave the law on Mount Sinai, and who communicated His will through the prophets.
