Abstract

There are over 100 different names used in reference to Christ in the Book of Mormon. Different prophets prefer different names, depending on their own personal background. Jacob, for example, uses names related to his role as high priest among the Nephites. The high priest was to wear the name of God on his forehead, and an angel tells Jacob the name shall be “Christ,” which means “anointed one.” Studying the names for the Savior used by different Book of Mormon prophets allows us to better get to know both the Savior and his prophets, relate to them on a more personal level.
