In this riveting interview, scholar David Bokovoy takes a deep dive into the historicity of Mormon scripture – pulling no punches on controversial topics like the Book of Abraham and the Book of Moses. Bokovoy methodically lays out evidence that Joseph Smith’s scriptural translations and revelations, while profoundly inspiring to believers, do not stand up to historical criticism and were likely creative midrash-style interpretations rather than literal ancient documents. He navigates issues like the lack of source material for the Book of Moses, the discrepancies between the Book of Abraham and ancient Egyptian texts, and the incorporation of KJV biblical sources into the Book of Mormon – all with refreshing candor and biblical scholarship. Whether you’re a believer or a skeptic, this interview provides a fascinating insider’s look at how modern religious texts can still hold spiritual meaning even after being scrutinized through the lens of secular historicity.
