As mentioned earlier, the title PHARAOH
used in the context of Smith's Book of Abraham is an anachronism (See here
). This is proven conclusively by nonMormon Egyptologists (such as Ritner) although a pair of APOSTATE Egyptologists (Gee & Muhlestein) have been known to deny it and defend Smith's ignorant use of the term found in the Book of Abraham wherein this dynastic era must
belong to the Middle Kingdom.
Smith uses the word "Pharaoh" a total of 13 times in chapter 1 of the Book of Abraham:
1. Pharaoh, king of Egypt;
2. Elkenah was also the priest of Pharaoh
3. Pharaoh, the king of Egypt
4. god of Pharaoh
5. priest of Pharaoh offer upon the altar
6. god like unto that of Pharaoh, king of Egypt
7. and the god of Pharaoh, king of Egypt
8. court of Pharaoh
9. Pharaoh signifies king by royal blood.
10. Egypt was established by Pharaoh, the eldest son of Egyptus
11. Pharaoh, being a righteous man, established his kingdom
12. Pharaoh being of that lineage
13. notwithstanding the Pharaohs would fain claim it
Smith IGNORANTLY corrupts the word "Pharaoh" in his Grammar and Alphabet of the Egyptian Language to form bogus words and definitions:
eh. The first man, or Adam coming from Adam. Kigs or right over Patriarchal right by appointment.
. The largest riegn, the greatest dominian, possessions or power.
ho e oop— A king who has universal dominian, over all the earth.
4. Ha e oop hah

Extending the Dominion, possession and power state further.

All of this is coming from the mind of the man who wrote the Book of Abraham! I'd have to say that chapter 1 of the Book of Abraham has shown to be utter rubbish. How much longer can stubborn Mormon leaders allow this horrific forgery to remain in their canon? How embarrassing.
