    Will they also show the Papyri Joseph Smith used to translate the Book of Abraham? He said it was ther personal writing of Abraham, Aaron and Noah - and as such is the oldest biblical writing in the world.
    Shouldn't it be there?

    DN readers might wish to familiarize themselves with the Nag Hammadi Gnostic scrolls, which were found in 1945 and experienced a fascinating post-discovery history involving intrigue, treasure, illegal transfer and international negotiation. LDS readers who believe that some vital scriptures were lost, mistranslated or changed will find support in a careful reading of translations of the scrolls. I noticed many passages that reflect LDS theology that is found in the doctrine of traditional Christian sects. I highly recommend Pagel's "The Gnostic Gospels."
