Even more blatant, is that Joseph identified specific characters on the facsimiles and gave their translations that Egyptologists say are completely in error.Introduction Member beliefs The 1856 challenge The 1912 challenge Facsimile comparisons Not all papyri destroyed Joseph's Egyptian Grammar BOA doctrine RLDS BOA perspective The Book of Joseph Joseph's translating accuracy BOA's astronomy The Book of Abraham text Smith's 5 BOA sources Responses by LDS faithful Official LDS response LDS Scholars not leadership Final LDS argument?This 23 minute video is one of the best, most concise and neutral overviews of the Joseph Smith papyri.He gives an excellent summary of the history of the Book of Abraham, the problems and the apologetic explanations.LDS critics point out that, since the original Papyri have been examined by both LDS and non-LDS Egyptologists and both groups have indicated clearly that the scrolls are funerary texts that have nothing to do with Abraham or anything mentioned in the LDS scripture, the Book of Abraham cannot have been translated from the scrolls as Joseph Smith claims and is therefore a false book of scripture.Also, since the translations of the facsimiles were taken from copies of the original papyri and each contains such blatant translation errors as listing drawings of women as men and canopic jars as idols, critics reject the claim made by apologists that the Book of Abraham was translated from scrolls that were lost.After Smith's death in 1844, the papyrus became the property of his first wife, Emma.In the dispute over who was to inherit the role of Prophet in the LDS Church, Emma Smith refused to recognize the leadership of Brigham Young.
The book contains three facsimiles from the original papyri and Joseph Smith's translations of their images and characters.And at some point, Emma donated the papyrus to a museum in Chicago.When the museum burned down in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, it was assumed by all that the papyrus had been burnt up with it.So the logical question that many Latter-day Saints, living in more modern times, have had is 'why don't we let Egyptologists, who now understand Egyptian, look at the papyri and see if Joseph was correct in his translation?' The answer usually given is that the papyri were destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
- The writings of Abraham while he was in Egypt, called the Book of Abraham, written by his own hand, upon papyrus." began publishing regular bi-weekly installments of the text of the Book of Abraham, including woodcuts of three "Facsimiles" of the most significant illustrations in the collection of material that had been with the mummies. And in 1880, the Book of Abraham, by unanimous vote of LDS authorities, was "canonized" as official scripture of the LDS Church.
