As Nephi was teaching the people concerning the Jews and their eventual acceptance of the Messiah, he declared: And after they have been scattered, and the Lord God hath scourged them by other nations for the space of many generations, yea, even down from generation to generation until they shall be persuaded to believe in Christ, the Son of God, and the atonement, which is infinite for all mankind—and when that day shall come that they shall believe in Christ, and worship the Father in his name, with pure hearts and clean hands, and look not forward any more for another Messiah, then, at that time, the day will come that it must needs be expedient that they should believe these things.
Wherefore, he shall bring forth his words unto them, which words shall judge them at the last day, for they shall be given them for the purpose of convincing them of the true Messiah, who was rejected by them; and unto the convincing of them that they need not look forward any more for a Messiah to come, for there should not any come, save it should be a false Messiah which should deceive the people; for there is save one Messiah spoken of by the prophets, and that Messiah is he who should be rejected of the Jews.
For according to the words of the prophets, the Messiah cometh in six hundred years from the time that my father left Jerusalem; and according to the words of the prophets, and also the word of the angel of God, his name shall be Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
The continued use of the name Jesus Christ in the Book of Mormon, in view of all the other names and titles used in the scriptures, shows it had an important influence on the Nephites throughout their history.
Centuries later the prophet leader Benjamin taught what the future name of the Lord would be: And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary. Mosiah , emphasis added; see also Mosiah King Benjamin further taught that a special name should be bestowed upon all the faithful who made covenants with the Lord Mosiah , and later he identified what the name would be: Therefore, I would that ye should take upon you the name of Christ, all you that have entered into the covenant with God that ye should be obedient unto the end of your lives.
And it shall come to pass that whosoever doeth this shall be found at the right hand of God, for he shall know the name by which he is called; for he shall be called by the name of Christ.
Mosiah —9 Other Book of Mormon prophets also bore testimony that the Savior would be known by these names in future records. In teaching the people, he often reminded them of the future atonement and mission of this Christ see Alma ; ; —13; [his son Alma]. Alma ; emphasis added The Savior continued to use this designation during his ministry to the Nephites for all those who covenanted in the newly established order of the kingdom.
Jesus the Christ by James E. Talmage
When the question arose about what name to call the Church, the Lord reaffirmed the use of the name he would be best known by. He instructed the Nephites that this would be the case particularly for those who had taken his name upon them if they were to be found faithful and worthy at the judgment day. Have they not read the scriptures, which say ye must take upon you the name of Christ, which is my name?
For by this name shall ye be called at the last day; Therefore, whatsoever ye shall do, ye shall do it in my name; therefore ye shall call the church in my name; and ye shall call upon the Father in my name that he will bless the church for my sake.
And how be it my church save it be called in my name? They delighted to teach and testify of Christ. And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.

What's new: 'Jesus the Christ Study Guide' commemorates 100th anniversary of book
I was unsure as to how to read this book. Usually a book begins with an introduction and then works toward proving a thesis. In this book Piper provides fifty equal points with no real progression from one to the next. There seems to be little rhyme or reason to the order of their presentation and there is no sense of moving towards a dramatic conclusion.
I believe it would make an excellent basis for a devotional book. In fact, with the addition of a short meditation to each chapter, and perhaps a prayer, it would be a devotional book.
Doctrinally or perhaps editorially , there were a few small concerns. The old self that loved sin died with Jesus.
Sin is like a prostitute that no longer looks beautiful. She is the murderer of my King and myself…Sin, the prostitute who killed my friend, has no appeal, she has become an enemy.
We have been saved, and we are dying to sin, but it still lives within us, constantly trying to draw us back to our old ways.He was subsequently asked by the church's First Presidency to publish the lectures in book form. We could examine my psychology to figure why that is, but frankly, I think it is more interesting to talk about the women I discovered when I finally read while paying attention.
And I believe the authors introduced a few errors of their own. It is, as you can tell, a study of each of the many questions Jesus asked. It is a critical study and biography of the life of Christ from his pre-mortal existence, through his continuing mortal ministry, and into his role at the end of days.
In the year last named he resigned the presidency, but retained the chair of geology, which had been specially endowed; and ten years later he resigned the professorship to follow the practical work of mining geology, for which his services were in great demand. Showing I can see that I will want to re-read this again in the future because there is so much great information but I couldn't retain it all!
In his journal entry dated April 19, , he wrote:
