The Book of Mormon is another testament that Jesus is the Christ, in addition to the Bible. The Old Testament prophet Ezekiel predicted that this record would be kept, "Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, for Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions [This is the Bible]: then take another stick, and write upon it, for Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions [This is the Book of Mormon]." Ezekiel 37:16

Read the Book of Mormon 1 Nephi 18 - The Ship is Finished, The Crossing Made With Some Contention
The ship is finished—The births of Jacob and Joseph are mentioned—The company embarks for the promised land—The sons of Ishmael and their wives join in revelry and rebellion—Nephi is bound, and the ship is driven back by a terrible tempest—Nephi is freed, and by his prayer the storm ceases—The people arrive in the promised land. About 591–589 B.C.
