2021-06-03 Religion Today – Prof. Dan Peterson on the Interpreter Foundation’s the Witnesses film

The Interpreter Foundation’s new film “Witnesses” is now playing in over 350 movie theaters in the United States.  Witnesses is about the original three witnesses, Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer and Martin Harris.  In this episode of Religion Today, host Martin Tanner explains how this film is an uplifting, yet complete film, including trials and doubts of the witnesses.  It portrays Oliver, David and Martin as true believers, but also as people with human frailties.  All three left the Church.  Two returned.  None ever denied they saw an angel and the golden plates.  Until their dying day, they affirmed they had truly seen an angel and had actually seen the plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated.  Martin Tanner suggests all who may be interested see the Witnesses film.  (Find theaters and show times online)
