      Cloward, “Isaiah 29 and the Book of Mormon,” For examples of other scholars taking this view, see the works mentioned in John S. Thompson and Eric Smith, “Isaiah and the Latter-day Saints: A Bibliographic Survey,” in Isaiah in the Book of Mormon, , , , and The earliest example is from An indispensable resource for LDS students of scripture The Isaiah chapters are difficult for most readers of the Book of Mormon, however this work helps the reader better understand what's going on, and conveniently has a chapter on each Isaiah chapter in the Book of Mormon so they become more easily organized and manageable. Each chapter goes through both the ancient context and how it /5.

      The Book of Mormon sermon, therefore, clearly echoes this poetic refrain from Isaiah The passage in Isaiah is a reversal. Captive Judah will arise from the dust and sit down upon a . And understand Isaiah. Often when we are reading Isaiah in the Old Testament and the Book of Mormon (that quotes Isaiah,) we skip a lot of it. I think it’s partly because we believe Isaiah is only talking about his time — and thus something we needn’t be concerned about.

    There is thus something profound still to be realized about the writings of Isaiah and how they interface with the Book of Mormon. Perhaps this book, Studies in the Book of Mormon, will bring us a little closer to that understanding and to a greater appreciation of the sublime message these scriptures contain. pages. Mormon chose to keep about one third of Isaiah’s writings. Nephi, a Book of Mormon prophet from around B.C., said the following: “Now I, Nephi, do speak somewhat concerning the words which I have written, which have been spoken by the mouth of Isaiah.

There is no question that the Isaiah passages in the Book of Mormon are in the language of the King James translation of the Bible. It seems that if Nephi had copied them from the plates of brass in Hebrew onto his own record and that if Joseph Smith had then received the English translation by the gift and power of God, the Isaiah passages would read more like the Book of Mormon and less.

The extensive use of Isaiah poses several problems: Plagiarism The Book of Mormon narrative says that the Jews who left Jerusalem for the New World had with them the scriptures written up until that point ( B.C.).

That the Book of Mormon quotes from Isaiah is not a problem, except that Joseph Smith's translation reads nearly verbatim to the King James Translation.

Of the verses in the Book of Mormon quoted from the book of Isaiah, agree with the King James reading while show variations. Some 58 are paraphrased and 11 others are variants and/ or paraphrases. It is to the variants that we will give our attention here.

Two factors led to my study of the Isaiah variants in the Book of Mormon. Quoted in the Book of Mormon are nearly all of Isaiah chapters 2–14, 29, and 48– A helpful listing is found in LeGrande Davies’s “Chart of Isaiah Citations in the Book of Mormon,” in Daniel H.

Ludlow, ed., Encyclopedia of Mormonism, 5 vols. (), A complete identification of all chapters and verses of Isaiah quoted in the Book of Mormon along with an analysis of each.

Deutero-Isaiah Verses in the Book of Mormon Overview of the Deutero-Isaiah Problem in the Book of Mormon: In the Book of Mormon, there are many chapters of Isaiah directly incorporated from the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible, complete with translation errors that were obviously not possible to have been recorded on the gold plates since the KJV was not available until thousands of years.

This chart lists Book of Mormon passages that quote or paraphrase the words of Isaiah, which held great meaning for the Nephites and also apply to us today. The main Nephite prophets who quoted Isaiah were Nephi, Jacob, and Abinadi.

Next to the Book of Mormon references in this chart are corresponding references in the book of Isaiah. Nearly all academics, even some in the Church, doubt that Book of Isaiah comes from one prophet and maybe not even from God. They date the last third of the Book of Isaiah to the 6th century BC nearly years after Isaiah’s death and after Lehi’s family left Jerusalem with the brass plates—that is the “Isaiah Problem,” as it is called, in the Book of Mormon.

Mormon founder Joseph Smith is said to have “unsealed” the Book of Mormon document when he was given the ancient plates by the angel Moroni in order to translate and print the scripture in However, the passage in Isaiah has nothing to do with Mormonism or the Book of Mormon.

A side-by-side comparison of the text found in Isaiah and the Book of Mormon. Pages. Welcome; Full List of Side-By-Side Comparisons; Full List of Side-By-Side Comparisons I will update this list as I complete more side-by-side comparisons.

Ordered by appearance in the Book of Mormon: 1 Nephi. 3 Nephi – Isaiah (D) If you accept the Book of Mormon as true, there is no Deutero-Isaiah “problem.” However, I feel that the Book of Mormon can not only withstand the challenge, but the issue can actually be used to illuminate the nature of Isaiah and shed light on why this is such a profound book.

A question of Book of Mormon scholarship is whether the several chapters or passages of Isaiah cited or paraphrased in the book derive from an ancient text or whether they have been copied with some revision from the King James Version.

1 The BM 2 narrative would have us believe the former, that its citations of Isaiah come directly or. About one-third of Isaiah’s sixty-six chapters are found in the Book of Mormon. Two large blocks of Isaiah chapters ( and ) are scattered among four books (1 Nephi, 2 Nephi, Mosiah, and 3 Nephi).

In addition, Isaiah 29 is quoted in 2 Nephi. The following chart shows where these twenty-one Isaiah chapters are found in the Book of Mormon:Author: Victor Ludlow. Internal evidences of the unity of the book include imagery, repetition, expressions peculiar to Isaiah, and song.

Changes in style can be attributed to mood. The differences between the Book of Mormon and the King James Version support the authenticity and literary unity of Isaiah.

Isaiah is called "The Book of Salvation." The name Isaiah means "the salvation of the Lord" or "the Lord is salvation." Isaiah is the first book containing the writings of the prophets of the the author, Isaiah, who is called the Prince of Prophets, shines above all the other writers and prophets of Scripture.

However, by applying various interpretive tools, the authors of the nineteen articles in Isaiah in the Book of Mormon offer readers a clearer understanding of the function and message of Isaiah as presented by the Book of Mormon authors. "Overviews," the first of four parts in the volume, presents four essays.

THE ISAIAH PASSAGES IN THE BOOK OF MORMON A NON ALIGNED TEXT The above title (and link) refers to a Master’s thesis. This thesis reviews the Isaiah variants found in these four texts: the Masoretic Text (MT), the Septuagint (LXX), the Qumran (Q) or Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS), and the Book of Mormon MT, LXX, Q, and BoM Isaiah.

A second reason why the Book of Mormon Isaiah passages differ from similar passages in the Dead Sea Scrolls is that the translation of the Book of Mormon may not always reflect a minute and highly detailed analysis of every word on the gold plates.

It is evident that Joseph Smith was closely allied to the text of the King James Version, and it. Isaiah is the most quoted Old Testament prophet in the Book of Mormon volume, and this tome does justice to the essential role Isaiah plays in the volume, with many essays dedicating to exegeting the Nephite midrash of Isaiah periocpe and whole chapters in the Book of Mormon text/5(4).

The Book of Mormon is a remarkable book, filled with exciting adventures of heroic men and women, beautiful doctrines of the gospel, and uplifting passages of poetry and wisdom.

But it seems that in our desire to get to those adventures and doctrines, we all too often skip vital portions of the Book of Mormon - the writings of Isaiah/5(9). Indeed, after quoting much from Isaiah 52 (3 Ne. ;) and repeating Isaiah 54 in its entirety, the resurrected Jesus Christ admonished his Book of Mormon disciples to study Isaiah's words and then said, "A commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah.

Isaiah was both a prophet and a poet, so one of the things you can do to make his prophecies easier to grasp is to read Isaiah as poetry. BYU Professor Donald W. Parry published a book called Poetic Parallelisms in the Book of Mormon (available to read for free online!).Understanding Isaiah in the Book of Mormon thus presumes an understanding of the terms house of Israel, covenant, and gentile, which predominate in the Isaiah commentaries in the Book of Mormon and do not occur elsewhere in the book.

4. The scope of this paper does not allow a detailed explication of the Isaiah chapters in the Book of Mormon. The essays in this book, written by some of the finest LDS scholars, take a variety of approaches to help readers make the most of the Isaiah passages in the Book of Mormon.

These scholars use the prophets of the Book of Mormon as knowledgeable guides, examining how and why those ancient writers used and interpreted Isaiah in order to clarify for modern readers what the Isaiah Author: Donald W.
