Jesus’s Name Examined In The Book Of Mormon

The Book of Mormon has many references to the name, Jesus, Christ or Jesus Christ.  See 2 Nephi, chapters 25,26,30,31,33.  There are many other chapters as well.  The point of the matter is that the Lord’s Name is being used before His birth, in most of these instances.  1Where the Bible doesn’t bring up His Name, Jesus Christ, until his genealogy was written in Matthew 1:1.  Then when the angel Gabriel comes to Joseph and tells him to name their baby, Jesus, in the same chapter.  After understanding that the Lord’s Name never got officially out until His birth tells me that Joseph Smith and his editors must have added His Name, in their book. Think about this for a minute. Sure, Jesus’s Name sounds good to have in a book.  However, for a book to say that it is “Another Testament of Jesus Christ”.  About a supposed real people that lived before and after Christ.  This Name is no longer good, in its reference, if it appears before Jesus’s birth.  Having this reference before His birth was not possible. This is a clear sign that the book was falsified. This is evidence that the Book of Mormon is false. Don’t trust it. Test it with what the Bible teaches and you will know this for yourself. My evidence is below… God bless you.

Here is the timeline of the Book of Mormon. (Click Here) From this timeline, the search results that reference the Name Jesus, Christ or Jesus Christ, before 3 Nephi, would be before Jesus’s Birth. You can see there are many references.

In the Bible, you will see that there are no references to the Name, Jesus, Christ or Jesus Christ, until Matthew 1:1. Nowhere in the Old Testament, are these names used. These names started to appear with His genealogy in Matthew.  I conclude that the Bible is true and the Book of Mormon is false.

Let us read the Bible:

1Matthew 1:1,18-21 (KJV)
1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.
