Research into the Book of Abraham

Here’s a video, posted on Youtube.com about the Book of Abraham. Mormons have a significantly larger set of holy books that do most Christians. Not only do they hold to the Old and New Testaments of the word of God (“insofar as they are translated correctly”), but in addition they hold to the Book of Mormon, Doctrines and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price.

The supposed Book of Abraham is one of the texts that make up the Pearl of Great Price. Founder of the Latter-day Saints (LDS), Joseph Smith, claimed to have translated this document from an ancient Egyptian scroll.

The evidence against Joseph Smith as a legit translator (and prophet of God) is seriously called into question by this documentary. It’s an hour well spent. 🙂
