  1. Doesn’t the Book of Mormon require that Jesus was born in 4 or 5 CE?
    According to 3Nephi 1, the sign of Jesus’s birth is given in the year following the completion of 600 years since Lehi left Jerusalem, and according to 1Nephi, Lehi left Jerusalem in the first year of the reign of Zedekiah. The first year of the reign of Zedekiah was 597 BCE, according to wikipedia. So 600 years after that would be 4 CE (there was no year 0). The year after that would be 5 CE.

    This is, of course, not reconcilable with the death of Herod in 4 BCE.

    They say there are no smoking guns that refute the historicity of the Book of Mormon, but I think there are many.
