The above painting is a composite of historical events associated with the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. His coming brought hope of eternal life to all the world. “Lift up your head and be of good cheer,” the Lord told Nephi the day before His birth; “for behold, the time is at hand. … Behold, I come unto my own, to fulfil all things which I have made known unto the children of men from the foundation of the world.” (3 Ne. 1:13–14.)
