We Have Come to Worship Him

Matthew 2 and Luke 2

Commentary by Lynne Hilton Wilson Ph.D. 

The Book of Mormon and the Nativity

Without the Book of Mormon’s witness, biblical scholars have doubted Matthew and Luke’s nativity stories as they discuss different ideas, contradict each other at times, and have no second source within the Bible. Yet, we find references to Jesus’ nativity narratives scattered across the Book of Mormon. This study guide highlights several details that confirm Matthew and Luke’s accounts, including 1 Nephi 1:8; Mosiah 3:15; Alma 7:10, 25:15; 3 Nephi 1:13. With the Book of Mormon as a second witness, the world has two prophetic voices confirming Jesus’ birth.
