Children's book demonstrates funeral scroll appearance of Abraham Facsimile 1

My son who is in 1st grade checked out a children's book from the local library called "Mummies" by Joyce Milton (1996). In it are pictures of preparing a body for mummification. Below I have included scans of these two images. Notice the stark similarities between these images and Facsimile 1 from the book of Abraham, also appearing below.

Here's Facsimile 1 from the Book of Abraham in the Pearl of Great Price:

To see Joseph Smith's interpretation of this image see the official source here:

The jars under the altar in Facsimile 1 match those in the children's book and were used to store the removed lungs, liver, stomach and intestines.

We know that the original papari were found in the '60s and found to be funeral scrolls. This children's book further demonstrates this facsimile as being part of the funeral scrolls preparing the body for mumification. See this link for more information on the book of Abraham:

If you choose to come on exmo sites and try to bring people back to the church then you have a problem. Get a life...

Waata, I'm sorry you're still in the brainwashed state like I was for so long.

"You don't hear us running other churches down."


Hey Waata, read your own doctrine.


What part of "Every other church is of the devil" don't you understand? Sounds like the ultimate "rundown".


Watta, pull yer head out of yer colon and breathe in the fresh scent of reality.

Waata must be joking guys....even the site link  at the bottom takes you to a mostly critical almost anti mormon site.

(There are a bunch of pop up though.)
