It is sometimes amazing to me how many things that I just don’t know (or, at least, don’t remember). For example, the language of this chapter makes plain that the Plates of Brass (at least partially) were written in Egyptian. I suppose that makes sense – after all, it is the record of Joseph, includes his prophecies, and he made these prophecies while in Egypt. So it is understandable that they would be written in Egyptian – it is just surprising to me.
