And it came to pass that [Jesus] stretched forth his hand and spake unto the people, saying:

Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophets testified shall come into the world.

And behold, I am the light and the life of the world; and I have drunk out of that bitter cup which the Father hath given me, and have glorified the Father in taking upon me the sins of the world, in the which I have suffered the will of the Father in all things from the beginning.

And it came to pass that when Jesus had spoken these words the whole multitude fell to the earth; for they remembered that it had been prophesied among them that Christ should show himself unto them after his ascension into heaven.

And it came to pass that the Lord spake unto them saying:

Arise and come forth unto me, that ye may thrust your hands into my side, and also that ye may feel the prints of the nails in my hands and in my feet, that ye may know that I am the God of Israel, and the God of the whole earth, and have been slain for the sins of the world.

And it came to pass that the multitude went forth, and thrust their hands into his side, and did feel the prints of the nails in his hands and in his feet; and this they did do, going forth one by one until they had all gone forth, and did see with their eyes and did feel with their hands, and did know of a surety and did bear record, that it was he, of whom it was written by the prophets, that should come.

3 Nephi 11:9-15

The story behind Other Sheep I Have

Other Sheep I Have depicts the appearance of the resurrected Messiah to people who inhabited ancient America at the time of His crucifixion and resurrection from the dead.  As recorded in the Book of Mormon, the resurrected Messiah appeared to a multitude of people gathered at the site of a temple in a land then known as Bountiful, and invited them to come forward, one by one, that each person might affirm for his or her self that He was, indeed, the Messiah of whom the prophets had testified and written.

The model used for the woman appearing in the painting is descended from the peoples of ancient America, and her hairstyle and clothing are reminiscent of such cultures throughout Central and South America.

Symbolism in Other Sheep I Have

The figure of the Savior appears clothed in white, as described in the ancient account.  It is devoid of shadow and casts its own light on the figure of the woman.  Such powerful whiteness is also described in the ancient narrative:  And his countenance did smile upon them, and the light of his countenance did shine upon them, and behold they were as white as the countenance and also the garments of Jesus; and behold the whiteness thereof did exceed all the whiteness, yea, even there could be nothing upon earth so white as the whiteness thereof (3 Nephi 19:25).

The rock upon which the Savior is depicted as standing is intended to remind the viewer that He speaks of Himself as the Rock of Heaven (see Moses 7:53) and, as one ancient American disciple declared:  Remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall (Helaman 5:12).

The grasses and wildflowers surrounding the figures bloom in the purest white, typifying the surety of the resurrection and the hope of eternal life.
