In this small tract we cannot discuss all the evidence that now exists regarding the Book of Abraham, the papyri that have been found, and the various explanations put forward by defenders of Joseph Smith.
The words above Figure 2 read: Egyptologist Klaus Baer provides this information about facsimile No. Note, even LDS apologists admit that this figure, with the erect penis, is the god Min. Isaiah saw God upon His throne in Isaiah 6: The words above Anubis read: What likely happened was that the person that first made the engraving plate copied the image exactly as shown on the original papyri.
Min is the god of the procreative forces of nature. The scene comes from a mortuary papyrus and is similar to, but not identical with the scenes showing judgment of the deceased before Osiris such as P.
He has helped the deceased complete his journey, and assisted him in the use of the spells that were contained in his funeral book. God reveals the worship of these gods to be an abomination that brings His wrath Jeremiah Incredible as it may seem, intelligent, well-read LDS are fully aware of the true nature of the hypocephalus, including the presence of Min and Nehebka the vast majority of LDS, however, are not.
Instead, we wish to look at just one aspect of the Book of Abraham, Facsimile 2 found on the front of this tractand even more specifically, one section of this drawing and what it really means. Joseph said it represents God sitting upon his throne. Behind Osiris stands Isis 2and in front of him is an offering-stand 3 with a jug and some flowers on it.
Pearl of Great Price, marked and explained by Joseph Smith as figure 7: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Autumnpp. Many examples of this kind of hypocephalus are to be found. As far as it can be made out, the line of hieroglyphics below the scene reads.
This is a woman, not a man, and she is the goddess Maat, goddess of justice — identified by the feather on her head and the writing above her hand. Enlarged photos of the engraving plates seem to indicate that the snout of the jackal head was scraped away.
This figure is not only a woman, instead of a man, but it is the goddess Isis, wife of Osiris. Min is Not God! In the process he demonstrated his own inability as a "prophet, seer and revelator," for he grossly misidentified each of the items not only in this Facsimile, but in the other two as well.
The object that Joseph Smith included in the Book of Abraham is, in reality, a "hypocephalus," a common item of Egyptian funeral literature all of the facsimiles in the Book of Abraham are drawn from common Egyptian funerary documents.
The deceased, after successfully undergoing judgment is welcomed into the presence of Osiris. Again, Joseph got the gender wrong. True to his 19th-century American point of view, Joseph identified the only "black" person in the drawing as a slave.
Three-fourths of the original hieroglyphics inscription appears to have survived, and counterclockwise reads: Figure 2 King Pharaoh, whose name is given in the characters above his head. The figure to the right provides us with the proper scene from another hypocephalus Leyden AMS Figure 6, which Joseph declared is Olimlah, a slave belonging to the prince, was in fact the jackal-headed god Anubis.
One should note that it is also found in Facsimile 2, figures 2 and 3, who are also gods. As the supreme sex symbol of gods and men, Min behaves with shocking promiscuity, which is hardly relieved by its ritual nature…His sacred plants were aphrodisiacal…and he is everywhere represented as indulging in incestuous relationships with those of his immediate family; he had the most numerous and varied religious entourage of all the gods, consisting mostly of his huge harem…The hymns, or rather chanting of his worshippers were accompanied with lewd dancing and carousing…to the exciting stimulus of a band of sistrum-shaking damsels Abraham in Egypt, p.
