This article states that the Nephite people knew of Christ, his birth, mission, and death. When Mexico was conquered in 1520, Cortez found a fallen Christian Church, but the descendants of Lehi had not entirely forgotten their great white god and his wondrous miracles and teachings, which had become the worship of Quetzalcoatl. Thinking he had returned, the people welcomed the Spaniards.
