How would Joseph Smith know that Abraham experienced two famines during his life and not just one?
The Book of Abraham claims that Abraham experienced two famines during his lifetime. This is opposed to just one found in the Bible.
Jeff Lindsay notes how this is consistent with other ancient texts such as:
- The Midrash Rabbah
- The seventh-century writings of Jacob of Edessa
- The writings of Bar Hebraeus
- The Muslim Qisas al-anbiya
How would Joseph Smith know this?
