Dear Gramps,

We enjoy your website. Really sorry to hear that you are no longer physically with us, but I guess we can assume you are still here in spirit. My question: There are over 120 verses in the Book of Mormon that appear to exactly copy quotations from Isaiah in the King James version of the Bible. How can this be considering that this version of the Bible was written a long time after the plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated, were inscribed. Best regards.






Thank you for your question and I’m glad that you are enjoying the website.

Now to answer your question.  I hope you don’t mind if I refer you to an answer that was given in 2007. I believe it holds the answers to your question.

Why is some of the Book of Mormon identical to the Bible?
