NOSSA MISSÃO

Divulga artigos de pesquisas científicas escritos por cientistas e pesquisadores SUD.s e não SUD.s, profissionais e amadores, a respeito da arqueologia, antropologia, geografia, sociologia, cronologia, história, linguística, genética e outras ciências relacionadas à cultura de “O Livro de Mórmon - Outro Testamento de Jesus Cristo”, uma das quatro obras padrão de “A Igreja de Jesus Cristo dos Santos dos Últimos Dias”.

O Livro de Mórmon conta a história dos descendentes do povo de Leí, (profeta da casa de Manassés), que saiu de Jerusalém no ano 600 a.C. (pouco antes do Cativeiro Babilônico) e viajou durante 8 anos pelo deserto da Arábia às margens do Mar Vermelho, até chegar na América (após 2 anos de navegação), desembarcando provavelmente em algum lugar da Mesoamérica (região que inclui o sul do México, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicarágua e parte de Costa Rica), mais precisamente a região vizinha à cidade de Izapa, no sul do México, onde, presumem os estudiosos, tenha sido o local de assentamento da primeira povoação desses colonizadores hebreus .

ARQUEOLOGIA - Reexplorando O Livro de Mórmon - Prefácio, Biografia e Bibliografia

John W. Welch

Traduzido e publicado com autorização do autor a Elson C. Ferreira – Curitiba/Brasil – Junho/2011 elsonferreira@gmail.com - de.jerusalem.as.americas@gmail.com

Nas semanas subsequentes estarei postando minha tradução dos 85 capítulos do livro “Reexplorando O Livro de Mórmon” (até agora disponível somente em inglês), de autoria de John Woodland Welch. Ele é advogado e professor de religião Santo dos Últimos Dias, e atualmente leciona na J. Reuben Clark Law School da Brigham Young University (BYU).

Biografia

John W. Welch foi o diretor fundador da Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies (F.A.R.M.S.), uma organização informal sem fins lucrativos formada na Califórnia em 1979 por acadêmicos devotados ao estudo histórico de “A Igreja de Jesus Cristo dos Santos dos Últimos Dias”.

A F.A.R.M.S. Apoia e patrocina o que considera o “estudo fiel”, o que inclui estudo acadêmico e pesquisas que apoiam o cristianismo e o mormonismo, e em particular, onde possível, a posição oficial d'A Igreja. Essa pesquisa se preocupa primordialmente com o que concerne com O Livro de Mórmon, o Livro de Abraão, o Novo Testamento, a história dos primeiros cristãos, templos antigos e outros assuntos relacionados. Enquanto organização, permite algum grau de liberdade acadêmica dentro desses tópicos, a F.A.R.M.S. está comprometida com a conclusão de que as escrituras dos Santos dos Últimos Dias são autênticas; textos históricos escritos por profetas de Deus. A F.A.R.M.S.

A F.A.R.M.S passou a fazer parte formal da Universidade Brigham Young por convite de Gordon B. Hinckley, Presidente d'A Igreja de Jesus Cristo dos Santos dos Últimos Dias e diretor da B.Y.U. Board of Trustees. Em extensão ao seu convite, o Presidente Hinckley observou:  “A F.A.R.M.S. representa os esforços de sinceros e dedicados estudiosos. Ela tem crescido para providenciar forte apoio e defesa à Igreja numa base profissional. Eu desejo expressar minhas fortes congratulações e apreciação por aqueles que começaram esse esforço e que o têm pastoreado até esse ponto.”

O Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship (N.A.M.I.R.S. - Instituto Neal A. Maxwell Para Estudos Religiosos) é operado pela Universidade Brigham Young, a qual consolidou a F.A.R.M.S. com o Center for the Preservation of Ancient Religious Texts (C.P.A.R.T. - Centro Para Preservação de Antigos Textos Religiosos) e o Middle Eastern Texts Initiative (M.E.T.I. - Iniciativa Textos do Oriente Médio) para formar o Institute for the Study and Preservation of Ancient Religious Texts (I.S.P.A.R.T. - Instituto Para o Estudo e Preservação de Antigos Textos Religiosos), que foi renomeado como Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship em 2006.

O irmão Welch é o atual Editor Chefe do periódico BYU Studies. Foi o diretor de publicações do Joseph Fielding Smith Institute For Latter-day Saint History (Instituto Joseph Fielding Smith Para História dos Santos dos Últimos Dias).

Welch é professor de leis e um dos principais eruditos Santos dos Últimos Dias. Trabalhou como advogado em Los Angeles com O'Melveny & Myers. De 1988 a 1991 serviu como um dos editores da Macmillan's Encyclopedia of Mormonism, e tem servido como Editor Geral da Collected Works of Hugh Nibley (Coleção de Obras de Hugh Nibley). Ele organizou a conferência do bicentenário de Joseph Smith Jr. para a Biblioteca do Congresso dos Estados Unidos e tem servido no comitê executivo da Biblical Law Section of the Society of Biblical Literature (Seção de Lei Bíblica da Sociedade de Literatura Bíblica).

Welch está entre os mais proeminentes alunos de Hugh Nibley, tendo feito várias e importantes descobertas e avanços com respeito a estudos bíblicos, estudos Santos dos Últimos Dias, história e cultura. Suas publicações cobrem uma grande variedade de tópicos, incluindo leis romanas e hebraicas no julgamento de Jesus Cristo, o uso das leis bíblicas na América Colonial, quiasmas na antiguidade e comentários sobre o Sermão da Montanha e do Discurso do Rei Benjamin.

Quando jovem missionário na Alemanha, o então Elder Welch discobriu muitas instâncias da forma literária chamada quiasma no Livro de Mórmon. Seu achado, publicado no BYU Studies com o título Chiasmus in the Book of Mormon em 1969,[1] e publicações subsequentes, moldaram pesquisas acadêmicas nos aspectos linguístico e histórico do Livro de Mórmon.

John W. Welch recebeu seu bacharelado e mestrado na BYU (B.A. Em História, M.A. em latin e grego).[2] Depois ele estudou na Oxford University como Woodrow Wilson Fellow.[3][4] A Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation é uma organização sem fins lucrativos com sede em Princeton, New Jersey, que administra programas que apoiam o desenvolvimento de liderança e constrói capacidades organizacionais no campo da educação.

Welch recebeu seu J.D. (Juris Doctor, grau jurídico concedido a advogados) na Duke University.[5] (http://www.law2.byu.edu/faculty/profiles2009/profile_fancy.php?id=35). Foi membro do quadro de editores da Encyclopedia of Mormonism[3] e co-autor da obra intitulada Religion and law: Biblical-Judaic and Islamic Perspectives (ISBN 0931464390). Ele foi editor da série The Collected Works of Hugh Nibley e autor de muitos livros e artigos que tratam da história e escrituras dos Santos dos Últimos Dias.
