Jesus Christ in the Book of Mormon

Elaine couldn't believe how much this book talked about Jesus.

Jesus spent His mortal life near Jerusalem, teaching the Jews of His gospel. However, Jesus also taught people in another land: the American continents. That visit was life-changing for them then. Knowing about it can be equally meaningful to you today.

"Other sheep I have"

Jesus frequently compared Himself to a shepherd. He often spoke of his love for those who follow Him, whom he referred to as His sheep. In John, chapter 10, while speaking to the people in ancient Palestine, He declared, “And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd” 

Who were the other sheep Christ spoke of in that parable? The history of some of these “other sheep” is recounted in the Book of Mormon.

The Book of Mormon and the Bible work together to tell the story of Jesus

The Book of Mormon is a book of scripture that details Godʼs teachings to people who lived in the ancient Americas. It serves as a companion to the Bible, reinforcing the witness of Jesus Christ, and adding new insights into His sacred mission.

The Bible tells the story of Jesusʼs life and ministry in the Holy Land, from His birth to His resurrection. But in the Book of Mormon, we read of His visit to the Americas after He died and rose again. He taught the people there, blessed them, called people to serve in His name, and then ascended to heaven.

Together, the Bible and the Book of Mormon tell a more complete story of Jesus Christ than either one could tell alone. When we read both books, we can gain a better understanding of Christʼs teachings and of Godʼs plan for our lives.

What the Book of Mormon means for you

Jesusʼs appearance in the Book of Mormon was important because it means God extends the same blessings and opportunities to all of His children. It shows that Godʼs love isnʼt confined to people from a single area of the world. No matter where we live or who we are, no matter what language we speak or what we may look like, God loves us and wants us to hear His truth.
