Radio Free Mormon: 130: Backdating Prophecy

Bible scholars use tools of textual analysis to identify backdated prophecies.  RFM  points out several examples in Isaiah, Daniel and the New Testament.  Then he uses those same tools on the Book of Mormon.  The results are startling!

  1. This was superb analysis and conclusion, it’s funny because I had drawn the same conclusion but much appreciated it having in a articulated fashion.

    Sir RFM, now deserves an honorary degree or PhD in biblical scholarship and BoM history. Let’s not forget his masters in theology and his bachelor in law. Did I miss something?

  2. I loved this, RFM. Your explanations and scholarship are very good. I prefer to send periodic $25.00 donations. I hope that’s OK. Deacon Blues/Boyd Ricks

    1. Anything you can send is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your contribution!

      No job is too big! No fee is too big!

  3. The Biblical prophecies that do genuinely impress me are those which predict the second gathering of the Jews to Jerusalem in the last days. They are quite specific in places and are very seemingly filled by events between 1900 and the founding of Israel in 1948 and onward. We know that these Biblical passages were written long before the modern era.

    1. I appreciate your making that comment because, as you know by now, I did an entire segment on the following podcast as to how I used to feel the same way as you, but why it is I no longer do so.

      I see you left a follow up comment and I will try to get to that as I move my way through the different comments.

      Thanks for listening!


  4. A faithful perspective would be that the original bible did have the mention of “the words out of the book” as well as “the words of those that slumber”, and “the words would come forth to all the world” etc.

    It used to be easy for me to think there were evil people, or at least people being influenced by the adversary, that meddled with things. Now that I think of it, this would require Satan to have almost as much foresight as God to know exactly what parts of the bible to tarnish. There are those that believe that ouija boards and other demonic things are real because Satan has a lot of power and knows us better than we know ourselves. But I find the idea that Satan knows that future or even that he knows our thoughts to be outside his scope of reach.

    Great episode, Consiglieri!
