    After His Resurrection, the Lord ministered unto many in the Holy Land and in the Americas. Many in ancient times bore testimony of the living Christ as did the Prophet Joseph Smith in modern times: "And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives!" (D&C 76:22).
