How many people did Jesus kill in the Book of Mormon?


Everyone in sixteen great cities

Assuming a population of 10,000 for each city, that would be 160,000 people.

This all happened on the day that Jesus died in the year 34 CE.

Behold, that great city Zarahemla have I burned with fire, and the inhabitants thereof. 3 Nephi 9:3

And behold, that great city Moroni have I caused to be sunk in the depths of the sea, and the inhabitants thereof to be drowned. v.4

And behold, that great city Moronihah have I covered with earth, and the inhabitants thereof. v.5

And behold, the city of Gilgal have I caused to be sunk, and the inhabitants thereof to be buried up in the depths of the earth. v.6

Yea, and the city of Onihah and the inhabitants thereof, and the city of Mocum and the inhabitants thereof, and the city of Jerusalem and the inhabitants thereof; and waters have I caused to come up in the stead thereof. v.7

And behold, the city of Gadiandi, and the city of Gadiomnah, and the city of Jacob, and the city of Gimgimno, all these have I caused to be sunk, and made hills and valleys in the places thereof; and the inhabitants thereof have I buried up in the depths of the earth. v.8

And behold, that great city Jacobugath ... have I caused to be burned with fire because of their sins and their wickedness, which was above all the wickedness of the whole earth, because of their secret murders and combinations v.9

And behold, the city of Laman, and the city of Josh, and the city of Gad, and the city of Kishkumen, have I caused to be burned with fire, and the inhabitants thereof v.10

And because they did cast them all out, that there were none righteous among them, I did send down fire and destroy them. v.11

And many great destructions have I caused to come upon this land. v.12

Behold, I am Jesus Christ the Son of God. I created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are. v.15

The previous chapter (3 Nephi 8) tells us that this occurred on the fourth day of the first month in the year 34 CE --

It came to pass in the thirty and fourth year, in the first month, on the fourth day of the month. 8:5

And there was not any light seen, neither fire, nor glimmer, neither the sun, nor the moon, nor the stars ... for the space of three days that there was no light seen. 8:21-22

which, according to Book of Mormon prophecy, was the day that Jesus died.

But behold, as I said unto you concerning another sign, a sign of his [Jesus's] death, behold, in that day that he shall suffer death the sun shall be darkened and refuse to give his light unto you; and also the moon and the stars; and there shall be no light upon the face of this land, even from the time that he shall suffer death, for the space of three days, to the time that he shall rise again from the dead. Helaman 14:20

To sum up then. When Jesus died:

He burned to death the people in six cities: Zarahemla, Jacobugath, Laman, Josh, Gad, and Kishkumen.

He buried alive the people in six cities: Moronihah, Gilgal, Gadiandi, Gadiomnah Jacob, and Gimgimno.

And he drowned the people of four cities: Moroni, Onihah, Mocum, and Jerusalem.

For a grand total of 16 cities -- or 160,000 people, assuming the cities had an average population of 10,000.

There are other killigs in the Book of Mormon that could be attributed to Jesus, but these are the most explicit.
