Book of Mormon, Mosiah 16:7, (emphasis added)…
“And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no sting, there could have been no resurrection.”
This verse is purported to have been written about 148 B.C., yet it is delivered in the past tense.
