Abstract

Sacred works other than those contained in the Bible exist, as biblical authors have recorded—the Book of Jasher, Book of the Acts of Solomon, Book of Nathan, Book of Gad, and others. Using Old Testament references, the author claims that the seed of Abraham occupied the American Continent as well as the Old World. The stick of Joseph and the stick of Judah are combined in the Book of Mormon and the Bible.
