The Lead Books Found in Jordan: Areas of Special Interest for Latter-day Saints

Margaret Barker

Presented at

The 2022 Temple on Mount Zion Conference

Saturday, November 5, 2022

Sponsored by The Interpreter Foundation, BYU College of Humanities, and BYU Religious Education


The tiny lead books found in Jordan are written in various forms of Hebrew script and may be copies of pre-Christian artefacts – or even originals. They are illustrated with temple symbols and describe the world of the first temple. Written in patterns rather than lines, the vocabulary has clear links to Isaiah.
