This chart illustrates the penchant of Book of Mormon authors to use multiple names for the Lord Jesus Christ. Nephi1 was especially creative in this regard, though all of these authors demonstrate an intimate, impressive understanding of the Lord's redemptive mission and many divine attributes. Indeed, the Book of Mormon makes clear that these prophets learned of Christ through the scriptures and divine revelation. For example, King Benjamin was a dedicated student of the scriptures, and his stirring words regarding Christ's saving mission were delivered to him by an angel (see Mosiah 3:2–4:1). The particular names that Book of Mormon authors used as they bore witness of the Savior are documented in chart 44.
