A Book of Mormon Christmas
The Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ. It provides another witness of His life, divinity, and mission. All Book of Mormon prophets, including Nephi, the brother of Jared, Samuel, Alma, Mormon, and many others, shared their testimony of Jesus Christ, whether they lived before His time on earth or after.
At Christmastime, we place special focus on the prophesies and the event of the birth of Jesus Christ. Prophecies of the Savior’s birth and life can be found in the following passages from the Book of Mormon: 1 Nephi 11:13–23; Mosiah 3:5–10; Helaman 14:1–13; 3 Nephi 1:4–22. Most importantly, these passages testify of the mission of Jesus Christ to redeem those who will believe on His name and repent of their sins. This message of hope, peace, and joy is what the gospel of Jesus Christ is about, and why Christmas is celebrated throughout the world.
As we finish our study of the Book of Mormon this year, contemplate how your faith in Jesus Christ has been strengthened and how you can share your testimony and joy with others.
