“Thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” —Matthew 1:21
“It is a matter of history that, at or near the beginning of what has since come to be known as the Christian era, the Man Jesus, surnamed the Christ, was born in Bethlehem of Judea. The principal data as to His birth, life, and death are so well attested as to be reasonably indisputable; they are facts of record, and are accepted as essentially authentic by the civilized world at large. ” —James E. Talmage, Jesus the Christ
