Uncovering Truth from the Sands of Egypt | Meridian Magazine

Prophet-writers of the Book of Moses, the Old Testament and the Qur’an made similar predictions for our day: truth would come forth from out of the earth.1 In addition to the coming of heavenly messengers from above to announce, reveal and bestow, the Last Days would also see the coming forth of Truth from the dust of the past. And, of course, even before the re-establishment of the church, the plates that gave us the Book of Mormon – the keystone of our religion – literally came forth from their hiding place in the earth. Later, the dusty tombs of Egypt would give us the Book of Abraham.
Since then an abundance of other truths, revelatory and confirmatory, have also come forth for those who have eyes to see, and ears to hear. The list is now quite long. The Dead Sea scrolls, the Nag Hammadi texts, the Nahom altars and a multitude of other writings and inscriptions have emerged, confirming the existence of various persons, places and events.
Together they have built a magnificent mosaic that sheds light on the past and also supports the literalness of our scriptures. But that mosaic still has some pieces missing.
