Abstract

New Testament scholars have long debated the year Christ died, with some favoring AD 30 while others prefer AD 33. The Book of Mormon helps resolve this controversy by documenting the exact time the Nephites witnessed the sign of Christ's death. The Book of Mormon also surprisingly favors a Thursday for the day of his death, instead of the traditional Friday.
