Who Is King Benjamin?

King Benjamin on the tower

King Benjamin was a prophet of God and a righteous king. He gathered his people to teach them. He stood on a tower so more people could hear him. The people set up tents around the tower to listen. It was like general conference!

Jesus Christ

King Benjamin taught that Jesus Christ would be born on the earth. Jesus would perform miracles. He would suffer and die for the sins of all people. He would then be resurrected so we could all live again!

People listening to King Benjamin

King Benjamin invited the people to take upon them the name of Christ. That means they made a covenant, or promise, to follow God and keep His commandments.
