Christopher Columbus

"And I looked and beheld a man among the Gentiles,[Christopher Columbus], who was separated from the seed of my brethren by the many waters; and I beheld the Spirit of God, that it came down and wrought upon the man; and he went forth upon the many waters, even unto the seed of my brethren, who were in the promised land."  (1 Nephi 13:12)


  << Proposed portrait of Christopher Columbus 

 "They firmly believed that I, with my ships and men, came from heaven...."  "They are still with me and still believe that I come from heaven. They were the first to declare this wherever I went, and the others ran from house to house, and to the towns around, crying out, "Come ! come! and see the man from heaven!"  (The Letter of Columbus to Luis De Sant Angel Announcing His Discovery, 1493)


"Columbus was convinced that the key to his enterprise was the spiritual gifts given him by the Lord: “He bestowed the arts of seamanship upon me in abundance, and has given me what was necessary from [astronomy], geometry, and arithmetic; and has given me adequate inventiveness in my soul.” Columbus was certain that God provided these gifts to be used in His service, “encouraging me to go forward, and without ceasing they inflame me with a sense of great urgency.”  (Columbus and the Hand of God,  By De Lamar Jensen, October 1992 Ensign)
