Where does the Bible talk about the Book of Mormon?
Isaiah 29:11-12 contains an oracle of a book that the recipient could not read because he was illiterate. If this is to be read as a prophecy of a book yet to be compiled, it could be a prophecy of the Hebrew Bible or the Christian Bible, but Mormons prefer to read it as a direct reference to the Book of Mormon.

"Jesus Christ" is mentioned 64 times "Jesus" (not followed by "Christ") is mentioned 116 times "Christ" (without "Jesus") is mentioned 302 times Please note that Jesu…s Christ is mentioned hundreds if not thousands of times in the Book of Mormon by other names, such as "Messiah", "Son of God", "Redeemer", "Lord", "Lamb of God" and "Jehovah". I didn't count any of those.. In a broader sense, every verse in the Book of Mormon is about Jesus Christ, since the entire book is meant to be "Another Witness of Jesus Christ". The Book of Mormon is a testimony of the faithfulness of God and the divinity and necessity of Jesus Christ as our Savior..
It could be arguable, but IMO there is no other writing/book in the Bible that expounds upon the depth of God's love as does the Gospel of John. Concerning a human 'love' st…ory, the unique book, 'The Song of Solomon' is most likely the best candidate. In an overall sense though, the entire Bible reflects God's love for all mankind.
In the King James version the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke place the crucifixion at "the sixth hour" and his death as occurring at "the ninth hour". These "hour…s" would most likely be referring to "hours since sunrise". * Mat 27:45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. * Mat 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? * Mar 15:33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. * Mar 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? Which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? * Luk 23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

The Bible used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) is the King James Version. It contains 39 Books in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament…. Some mistakenly refer to The Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ as the "Mormon Bible" or the "Golden Bible." This is inaccurate and should be avoided. Nevertheless, for those meaning the Book of Mormon, when using the term, "Mormon Bible", there are fifteen 'books' in The Book Of Mormon: The First Book of Nephi (1 Nephi)The Second Book of Nephi (2 Nephi)The Book of Jacob (Jacob)The Book of Enos (Enos)The Book of Jarom (Jarom)The Book of Omni (Omni)The Words of Mormon (Words of Mormon)The Book of Mosiah (Mosiah)The Book of Alma (Alma)The Book of Helaman (Helaman)The Third Book of Nephi (3 Nephi)The Fourth Book of Nephi (4 Nephi)The Book of Mormon (Mormon)The Book of Ether (Ether)The Book of Moroni (Moroni) Overall, the accepted standard works treated as 'scripture' by the Church, comprise: The Holy Bible [KJV] - both Old and New Testaments The Pearl of Great Price The Book of Mormon, and The Doctrine and Covenants The so-called "Mormon Bible" is actually the Book of Mormon. It is a book of scripture that contains Christ's dealings with some of the inhabitants of the ancient Americas. It covers a span of time of about 1000 years. As stated above, it contains 15 books of scripture [also cited above]
Gen. 19, 5-8, Gen. 22.19, Lev. 18.22-23, Lev. 20.13, Ezek. 16.49, 1 Kings 14.24, Judges 19.22, Romans 1.24, Romans 1.27, Jude 7, 1 Cor. 6.9, 1 Tim 1.9-10
The first verse of the book of Revelation answers this question well - The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must …shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: additionally: The "things which must shortly come to pass" are a series of "global events" [written as one of Jesus' famous public meaning-hiding 'parables'; Matt.13] that will lead up to "Jesus' return to earth" and the "completion of God's plan." [for instance, see the concluding chapters 19 through 22 that picture Jesus' return, His thousand year rule on earth, Judgment Day, the New Heavens and Earth, the Father's descent from heaven onto the New Earth, and the "New Beginning"]. "...Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these Words are True and Faithful.... IT IS DONE..." (Rev.21:5-6). The main thrust of the Book of Revelation is the events that surround the "seventh seal" Jesus strips away from the "scroll" that no man but He can open and look into [chapter 5:2-5]. The first six seals are all opened in chapter 6... leaving a whopping 16 of Revelation's 22 chapters left to explain "seal seven" [beginning in chapter 8]... which is the "Day of the Lord" ["...I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day - Rev.1:10]-- the time of Jesus' return with the Kingdom of God, spoken of as the "gospel" [good news of God] and in dozens of prophecies throughout the Bible. The "seventh seal" is composed of "seven trumpet" plagues of God [Rev.8:1-2]. Bible prophecies reveal Jesus' return with the Kingdom of God to earth and to gather His elect, will occur at the "last" trumpet sound [I Cor.15:52; I Thess.4:16; Matt.24:31]. Which Revelation sees fulfilled in chapter 11: "...the seventh [and last] angel sounded; and... The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever." (verse 15) And while Jesus Christ, then, finally reunited with His saints [at the last trump], and His angelic army that gathered them [Matt.24:31] hover above the earth in the clouds -- the final "seven vial plagues of God's wrath" are "poured out" on the earth [chapter 15:7-8 & 16]... before He makes His final descent onto the earth to defeat the armies of man gathered at Armageddon to fight Him[chapter 19]. "...These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are Called, and Chosen, and Faithful." [chapter 17:14] The book of Revelation talks specifically about the [seventh seal], the global events surrounding "the return of Jesus Christ to the earth with the Kingdom of God"... better known in Bible prophecy as "the Day of the Lord." "...it is the Day of the Lord's vengeance..." (Isa.34:8). "...proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the Day of vengeance of our God..." (Isa.61:2) "...For the Day is near, even the Day of the Lord is near, a cloudy day [see Rev.6, seal 6; Matt.24:29]..." (Ezek.30:2). "...the Day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand..." (Joel 2:1) "Woe unto you that desire the Day of the Lord!..." (Amos 5:18). "...the Day of the Lord is near..." (Obadiah 15). "Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth... it may be ye shall be hid in the Day of the Lord's anger." (Zeph.2:3) "Behold, the Day of the Lord cometh... For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle..." (Zech.14:1-2). The book of Revelation talks about world events just ahead of us that shall see the fulfillment of all these [and more] prophecies regarding the Day of the Lord. The LORD'S DAY! The Day that Jesus Christ returns to earth with God's Kingdom. "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the Words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand." (Rev.1:3) "...behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be." (Rev.22:12)

The Bible testifies of Jesus Christ. Likewise the Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ. It gives the account of Christ coming to the American continent, and organizing his… church among the people there, along with the history of many ancient peoples who settled the American continent long before Columbus arrived. The timeline is from about 600 B.C. to around 421 A.D. The Bible underwent several translations thereby losing many doctrinal points given by prophets. The Book of Mormon was translated once from reformed Egyptian by the power of God through Joseph Smith, so it has retained its doctrine. This and geographic location of the peoples involved are the major differences. It is called the Book of Mormon, because a prophet named Mormon abridged several records, and added words of his own, and engraved them on the gold plates, which Joseph Smith translated them from. I would suggest to you a free copy of The Book of Mormon, so you can find out for yourself. If you read it and pray about it with sincerity, God will reveal to you the truthfulness of this book. If you see missionaries from The Church of Jesus of Latter Day Saints they can teach you more and give you a copy. Anyone may request a free Book of Mormon if they would like to learn more by calling this number 1-888-537-7111 or google search Free Book of Mormon and you will find it.

The Mormon Bible is the exact same as the regular King James Version of the Bible which other Christian religions use. The LDS, or as it's more commonly known, "Mormon" Church… has another Testament of Jesus Christ called The Book of Mormon, which was, according to LDS gospel, written by people around the same time as the Bible, and restored after being lost in the Dark Ages by Joseph Smith. The individual book of Mormon within The Book of Mormon, is the the third to last book, preceeding Moroni and Ether. Mormons accept the King James Version of the Bible as their "Bible". A separate book, The Book of Mormon, is also believed to be scripture in the Mormon faith. The word "Bible" means a "collection of books." The Book of Mormon is also a "collection of books" just written by different prophets in a different part of the world. Suppose you had 3 teenagers, all of whom wanted to go to college. The oldest one, a son, goes to Yale. While there he keeps a journal of his experiences. It tells both the good and the bad about going to college. He graduates with honors. The next child, a daughter, decides to go to UCLA. To prepare her, she reads her brothers journal prior to heading West. She too keeps a journal while in school. She graduates successfully too. Now your third child is headed off to college. To prepare her, is she better off just reading the son's journal or do you think she should also read the journal of the daughter? Both journals together better outline how to prepare for and make it through college successfully; they were just kept in different parts of the country. So it is with the Bible and The Book of Mormon. Mormons believe they are both valuable, because they teach the same doctrine but also help amplify each other. They were just written and recorded in different parts of the world by different groups of people. Hope that's helpful. For a free copy of either the King James Version of the Bible or The Book of Mormon, contact any local Mormon church or call church headquarters in Salt Lake City. They'll send you one or both for free.
Two differing opinions presented below Opinion 1: No! the reference to Ezekiel 37:15-17 below is misinterpreted. The Hebrew word used by Ezekiel is ets, wh…ich means "wood, tree, stick"; translated in this passage asstick, ets is also used in Numbers 15:32; 1 Kings 17:10; 2 Kings 6:6, and Lamentations 4:8, to name a few places. Had God meant "scroll" or "book" here in Ezekiel He would have used the word cepher, which appears in Joshua 1:8; Isaiah 30:8; Jeremiah 36:2; Daniel 12:1, and Malachi 3:16 to cite a few examples.The logical conclusion is that Ezekiel 37:15-17 is to be understood literally. The Lord told Ezekiel to take one stick and carve on it, "For Judah", etc. Then to take another stick and carve into it, "For Joseph", etc. This was all Ezeliel was to write on these sticks and then join them together; it's not at all referring in any way to The Book of Mormon. The union of the two rods (sticks) was a prophecy in action of the brotherly union which is to reunite the ten tribes (Israel) and Judah. Opinion 2: Yes, to answer shortly, keep reading. The Bible does not say directly "from the Book of Mormon" or anything like that. After the death of Christ the church was persecuted and the apostles were killed. The church that Christ established did not last more than a hundred years or so. This was prophesied about many times, one reference is 2 Thessalonians 2:3. The period of time that the Church of Jesus Christ was not on the earth is called the apostasy. During this time many evil men took the writings of the apostles and prophets and changed them to fit their beliefs. They started their own churches and taught whatever they wanted. They changed the Bible and took out many things. For this reason the Bible does not speak very clearly about the Book of Mormon. See Ezekiel 37:15-17 It says 15 ¶ The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, 16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: 17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. The "stick" it talks about is a book. The stick of Judah refers to the book of the Jews, or the Bible. Much of the bible was written by descendants of Judah, one of the 12 sons of Israel. We know from the book of Book of Mormon that Lehi was a descendant of Joseph (1 Nephi 5:14). The sons of Lehi married the Daughters of Ishmael. Ishmael was from the tribe of Ephraim, Ephraim being a son of Joseph. The Book of Mormon was passed down through the generations starting with Nephi, son of Lehi, with each generation adding more to the record. We can safely say that the Book of Mormon comes from the descendants of Ephraim, making the Book of Mormon "the stick of Ephraim". Ezekiel prophesied in this scripture that one day these two books would come together as one. Today in the LDS church we use both The Bible and the Book of Mormon to further our knowledge of Christ. Other references to the Book of Mormon in the Bible include. Isaiah 29:4 (4-11) Malachi 3:1-3 (references Joseph Smith, the translator of the Book of Mormon) John 10:16 (also see 3 Nephi 15:17) Jesus tells his apostles he has to leave them to go visit other people that are not from a place they know of. == The debate seems to be about whether the metaphor of the stick refers to joining two groups of people or joining two books of scripture. Either way you are looking at a metaphor or a symbolic prophecy, not a literal inscribed stick.
