Good Cross References That Aren’t There

29 Apr

Andrew Miller gives us some good scripture cross-references not in the current LDS scriptures –

On a message board that I frequent someone started a post asking for people to give good cross references that are not in the LDS edition of the scriptures. I added a few of my own and found some of the others really interesting. I add them here for your enjoyment.

1 Nephi 4:13
the Lord slayeth the wicked to bring forth his righteous purposes. It
is better that one man should perish than that a nation should dwindle
and perish in unbelief).


Matthew 5:29

(And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee:
for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish,
and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.)

Jacob 1:19 (And
we did magnify our office unto the Lord, taking upon us the
responsibility, answering the sins of the people upon our own heads if
we did not teach them the word of God with all diligence; wherefore, by
laboring with our might their blood might not come upon our garments;
otherwise their blood would come upon our garments, and we would not be
found spotless at the last day.)


Ezekiel 3:18
(When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him
not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to
save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his
blood will I require at thine hand.)

Hebrews 10:26-27 (26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.)


Mosiah 2:36-37 (36
And now, I say unto you, my brethren, that after ye have known and have
been taught all these things, if ye should transgress and go contrary
to that which has been spoken, that ye do withdraw yourselves from the
Spirit of the Lord, that it may have no place in you to guide you in
wisdom’s paths that ye may be blessed, prospered, and preserved—
I say unto you, that the man that doeth this, the same cometh out in
open rebellion against God; therefore he listeth to obey the evil
spirit, and becometh an enemy to all righteousness; therefore, the Lord
has no place in him, for he dwelleth not in unholy temples.)


2 Nephi 25:23 For
we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our
brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we
know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.


Alma 24:11

And now behold, my brethren, since it has been all that we could do,
(as we were the most lost of all mankind) to repent of all our sins and
the many murders which we have committed, and to get God to take them
away from our hearts, for it was all we could do to repent sufficiently
before God that he would take away our stain—


Below are the cross references I contributed to the list:

Matthew 5:48
–Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.


Luke 6:40
–The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.

John 5:29–And
shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of
life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.


D&C 76:15-18–For
while we were doing the work of translation, which the Lord had
appointed unto us, we came to the twenty-ninth verse of the fifth
chapter of John, which was given unto us as follows—
16 Speaking of the resurrection of the dead, concerning those who shall hear the voice of the Son of Man:
And shall come forth; they who have done good, in the resurrection of
the just; and they who have done evil, in the resurrection of the
18 Now this caused us to marvel, for it was given unto us of the Spirit.


John 6:44, 65
man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and
I will raise him up at the last day…And he said, Therefore said I
unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him
of my Father.


2 Nephi 26:24-28, 33
doeth not anything save it be for the benefit of the world; for he
loveth the world, even that he layeth down his own life that he may
draw all men unto him. Wherefore, he commandeth none that they shall
not partake of his salvation.
25 Behold, doth he cry unto any,
saying: Depart from me? Behold, I say unto you, Nay; but he saith: Come
unto me all ye ends of the earth, buy milk and honey, without money and
without price.
26 Behold, hath he commanded any that they should
depart out of the synagogues, or out of the houses of worship? Behold,
I say unto you, Nay.
27 Hath he commanded any that they should not
partake of his salvation? Behold I say unto you, Nay; but he hath given
it free for all men; and he hath commanded his people that they should
persuade all men to repentance.
28 Behold, hath the Lord commanded
any that they should not partake of his goodness? Behold I say unto
you, Nay; but all men are privileged the one like unto the other, and
none are forbidden.
….For none of these iniquities come of the
Lord; for he doeth that which is good among the children of men; and he
doeth nothing save it be plain unto the children of men; and he
inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he
denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male
and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God,
both Jew and Gentile.


John 12:32
–And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.


3 Nephi 27:13-15
Behold I have given unto you my gospel, and this is the gospel which I
have given unto you—that I came into the world to do the will of my
Father, because my Father sent me.
14 And my Father sent me that I
might be lifted up upon the cross; and after that I had been lifted up
upon the cross, that I might draw all men unto me, that as I have been
lifted up by men even so should men be lifted up by the Father, to
stand before me, to be judged of their works, whether they be good or
whether they be evil—
15 And for this cause have I been lifted up;
therefore, according to the power of the Father I will draw all men
unto me, that they may be judged according to their works.

2 Corinthians 3:18–But
we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the
Spirit of the Lord.


2 Corinthians 4:4
–…the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God,…


Col. 1:14
–[Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature


Philippians 2:6— [Christ], being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:


John 5:18–Therefore
the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken
the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself
equal with God.

Revelation 22:18-19— For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy,
God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the
holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.


Revelation 1:1-3,11
Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his
servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and
signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand…
11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia;


John 3:16–For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


D&C 34: 1-3
–My son Orson, hearken and hear and behold what I, the Lord God, shall say unto you, even Jesus Christ your Redeemer;
2 The light and the life of the world, a light which shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not;
3 Who [Jesus Christ] so loved the world that he gave his own life, that as many as would believe might become the sons of God.

My most often used reference I’ve written into my scriptures is…
John 10:30
I and my Father are one.
John 17:11,21
now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come
to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast
given me, that they may be one, as we are…
That they all may be
one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be
one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
