My Coming Out pt4 – Plagiarism

Plagiarism

​I am aware of the many alternate authorship stories that exist for the Book of Mormon. I am partial to the Spalding/Rigdon theory, myself, but for the sake of this letter I will assume Joseph Smith is the author. How could a verse or block of text from different languages, different time periods, and different authors be translated into text that is, in most cases, word for word the same paragraph? A list of the evidence:

• 1 Nephi 20, 21​ Isaiah 48, 49
• Mosiah 14​ Isaiah 53
• 3 Nephi 12-14​ Matthew 5-7
• 3 Nephi 24-25​ Malachi 3-4
