2 Nephi 25: 19 For according to the words of the prophets, the Messiah cometh in six hundred years from the time that my father left Jerusalem; and according to the words of the prophets, and also the word of the angel of God, his name shall be Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
The Book of Mormon truly is ‘Another Testament of Jesus Christ’. Its prophets foretold his birth and ministry, some saw it in vision, and his name was revealed to them.
600 years before his birth, 6000 years before his birth, an eternity before his birth, our Elder Brother Jesus Christ was foreordained to come to this world to redeem us from sin. This is the good news of the Gospel that has been preached through the ages.
