Egyptian Papyri and the Book of Abraham: A Faithful, Egyptological Point of View
Papyri, Egyptian Papyri, Book of Abraham. Pearl of Great Price
Many critics have claimed that Joseph Smith’s translation of Egyptian papyri and his interpretation of Egyptian drawings do not match with what Egyptologists would say about these things. Such critics thus call into question his ability to translate ancient records. A more careful examination reveals that these claims are based on false assumptions and bad information. Solid research supports Joseph Smith’s claims.
