Great Waters

The Abraham account is the most interesting of the three temple creation versions we have.  One interesting thing about it is this: the waters under the veil are called Great Waters rather than Seas.  This unavoidably reminds us of Nephi's name for the sea at Bountiful, Many Waters.


  1. I've long suspected that Joseph's translation of Abraham stops where it does because he saw that it was detailing things that were best conveyed within the temple under covenant, not on the front page of the Times & Seasons.

  2. Or that we're simply not ready to have in our scriptures yet... because we haven't understood what we have.
