John S. Kselman, Associate Professor of Semitic Languages at the Catholic University of America, made these observations about Welch's work in a review published in Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought:
In evaluating this contribution, it seems to me that the point Welch makes (i.e., that the presence of chiastic structures in parts of the Book of Mormon indicates their status as ancient scripture) is weak, or at least is explainable in other ways . After all, if one wants to repeat a list of items not haphazardly, but in some sort of order, there are only two ways to do it: by mirroring the first instance (ABCD = ABCD), or by reversing it (ABCD = DCBA) ("Ancient Chiasmus Studied," by John S. Kselman, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought , Vol. 17, No. 4, Winter 1984, p. 147).
One example of the way he expanded the text can be seen in John 1:1.
In fact, an early Greek manuscript of John 1:1, known as Papyrus Bodmer II, P66, is dated about 200 A.D. and translates like the King James Version. [35]
