Alma 7:10 And behold, he shall be born of Mary, at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God.
‘Jesus was the son of Mary, a mortal woman. And he was the son of Elohim, the Eternal Father. He was not the son of the Holy Ghost, as some have supposed from the New Testament account (Matthew 1:18).’ (McConkie and Millet, Doctrinal Commentary on the Book of Mormon, vol. 3, p. 51)
Many who have sought to show that the Book of Mormon is a fraud have seized on this verse as evidence of an error by Joseph Smith as everybody knows that Jesus was born in Bethlehem and not Jerusalem. (Do they think that Joseph Smith didn’t know that Jesus was born in Bethlehem?)
