FARMS Preminary Reports
(1981 — 2013)

The Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies (FARMS) was organized by John W. Welch in California in 1979 as a private, not-for-profit educational organization, and Welch brought the foundation with him to Utah when he came to teach at BYU in 1980. Insights began as the FARMS Newsletter in July, 1981. It mentions a previous Newsletter: "The first Newsletter announced the ambitious goal of raising $20,000 by June 30, 1981. For practical purposes that goal has been reached, culminated by recent donations of an IBM typewriter and a small computer system. The computer, a TRS-80 system with 48K capacity, includes CPU, expansion interface, monitor, two disc drives, printer and custom desk." In March, 1984 it became Insights, An Ancient Window and then Insights, A Window on the Ancient World in January, 1999. In 2013, it was replaced by the Maxwell Institute blog.

Abstract: From 1921 to 1922 B. H. Roberts wrote three papers that listed parallels between the Book of Mormon and the second edition (1825) of Ethan Smith's View of the Hebrews. Roberts constructed the possible argument that the Book of Mormon relied upon Ethan Smith's book. John Welch responds to that claim by addressing the issues Roberts raised and by listing over eighty differences between the two works.

Abstract: John Welch considers what records were brought together to form the book of Ether and examines which parts of the book might have been composed by Moroni. He looks for paraphrases included in the book and seeks to discover what influenced Moroni's rendition of the Jaredite story. He concludes that stating comprehensively who wrote the book of Ether is no simple matter.

Abstract: John Welch argues that all possible chiasms are not equal.

To further that end, Welch proposes fifteen criteria for appraising examples of chiasmus in literature.

He suggests that there are many spiritual and intellectual implications to this study.

Welch, John W. "Theft and Robbery in the Book of Mormon and in Near Eastern Law." Provo, UT: FARMS, 1989.
Abstract: There is good evidence that most legal systems in the ancient Near East distinguished between crimes of theft and robbery. A thief was a local person who stole from his neighbor and was dealt with judicially, whereas robbers were outsiders who attacked in open force and were dealt with militarily. John Welch explores the extent to which similar legal and cultural perceptions of thieves and robbers are evidenced in the Book of Mormon.

Abstract: Stories about Abraham circulated in ancient times and were continued into the medieval period. Many of these accounts were then lost and have come to light only recently.
