Christ in America
"In "the Bible," in John 10:16 Jesus told His Apostles:
"Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold and one shepherd."
When the Lord visited these "other sheep" –the inhabitants of ancient America, His appearance had a powerful, long-lasting impact on the people.
During His visit, Jesus Christ:
- Invited them to feel the wound marks in His hands, feet, and side
- Taught them His gospel
- Called twelve disciples to teach His gospel
- Healed the sick
- Prayed for the people
- Performed miracles
Christ's visit to ancient America is recorded in "the Book of Mormon" in 3rd Nephi Chapter 11-28.
Although many believe this story is unique to the Book of Mormon, many parallelisms discovered through tales, legends, and myths recorded by the ancient inhabitants of the continent display possible evidence of Christ´s visit.
Ancient documents such as the Popul Vuh or the Chilam Balam, two surviving Mayan records, both testify of the coming of a White-Bearded God known as Kukulkan. His story had such great impact not only to those who were blessed with his visit but also for the upcoming generations until it all ended with the Spanish invasion. For over 2000 years he became the center of their religion. Venerated for bringing miracles, unifying rival empires, healing the sick, teaching sciences and bringing peace.
