December 21–27. “He Shall Come into the World to Redeem His People”
Recommended Resources on Christmas from Book of Mormon Central
This year for Christmas, we invite you to learn about the birth of Christ from the Nephite perspective. Ancient prophets in the New World prophesied of the coming of Jesus Christ hundreds of years before his birth. We can draw closer to the Savior this Christmas as we study what he meant to Book of Mormon peoples. Provided here are several videos from our regular Come, Follow Me contributors such as Taylor Halverson, Tyler Griffin, and John Hilton III. You can also find many articles that give unique, concise insight into the Christmas-related passages of the Book of Mormon.
