The Book of Mormon Teaches about Jesus Christ

Listen Download Print Share

As you read the Book of Mormon, you’ll go on many adventures. You’ll travel in the wilderness with Lehi and Sariah’s family and watch Nephi build a boat. You’ll also meet many prophets—like Lehi, Nephi, Abinadi, Samuel, and Mormon. All of the prophets in the Book of Mormon taught about Jesus. Some of them even saw Him. In fact, that’s why Heavenly Father gave us this special book: to help people everywhere learn more about Jesus!
