The Golden Plates

Updated on July 23, 2009

On September Twenty First 1823, Joseph Smith recieved a revelation from the angel Moroni. He was told that there was a book deposited in a hill, and written on Gold plates, giving an account of the former inhabitants of this continent. this book, we believe to be prophecized of by Isaiah;

29:4; "And thou shalt be brought down, and shall speak out of the ground, and thy speach shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as one that hath a familiar spirit." 11: "And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed," 14; therefore I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder." 18; and in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness."

The copper scroll was discovered as part of the dead sea scrolls in Qumran and contains a list of locations of which various items of Gold and silver are hidden. One of those locations being on the property of, "The house of Hakkoz" which is where the second temple was built in Jerusalem during the time of Ezra and Nehemiah.

 

The oldest multi page book written in the lost Etruscian language of Bulgaria was discovered in the 1960's and contains six sheets of twenty four carat gold, bound by two rings and dates back to 600 BC. it has illustrations of a horse rider, soldiers, a harp, and a mermaid.

When the concept of a metal book bound by rings was first presented by Joseph Smith, people thought of it as historically inaccurate and unheard of. Although a rare instance, one could only wonder at the striking similarities in design.

The plates of Pyrgie are another example of ancient writings of the Etruscian people on golden plates, and was discovered in 1967. The one on the left is written in phohesian and the one on the right is in the origional etruscian language. both have the same meaning as follows;

To [our] Lady Ishtar. This is the holy place // which was made and donated // by TBRY WLNSH [= Thefaries Velianas] who reigns on // Caere [or: on the Caerites], during the month of the sacrifice // to the Sun, as a gift in the temple. He b//uilt an aedicula [?] because Ishtar gave in his hand [or: raised him with her hand] // to reign for three years in the m//onth of KRR [=Kerer], in the day of the burying // of the divinity. And the years of the statue of the divinity // in his temple [might be ? are ?] as many years as these stars.
