"OK, so the LDS sect broke off from the mainstream mormons of the day because of the JST. Then, they incorporated a book of the JST into some other book. Is that right?"

There is not book of Abraham in the Bible. Chapter 4 anyway seems to be a copy of Genesis chapter 1 with the word God changed to Gods.

There is a book Called the "Pearl of Great Price" in mromonism which includes "Abraham", "Moses" "Joseph Smith-Matthew" and "Joseph Smith-History". Joseph Smith-Matthew was an attempt by Joe to "re translate the bible" to see if the members would accept it, and after he saw that they did, he embarked on the whole bible. Funny thing is the Joseph Smith Matthew version the lds sect uses does not match the Joseph Smith Translation version of Matthew.....However, lds mormons are quick to point out when asked about JST that they use it, referring actually to JS-Matthew in the POGP, in other words, THEY LIE ABOUT IT.

Ok. Your first post was very confusing then. You quote a book of Abraham and then talk about the JST. I had assumed that Smith had written a book of Abraham into the JST and that’s what you were talking about. So, the JST was really nothing more radical than the NIV or NLT of its day?
