Abstract

Scholars have long discussed the exact timing of Christ's birth, but uncertainty still remains. The Book of Mormon adds information that helps clarify the issue, but does not settle the timing with exact precision. Regardless of when Christ was born, it is important that he was born and is the Savior and Redeemer of the world.
