3 Nephi : 15
From the beginning of this chapter, it's obvious that Christ means business when he makes covenants. Causing entire books to be written, and then keeping 100% of everything that is written means something.
I wonder why the people thought that Christ's coming "destroyed" the prophets? Interesting.
I love verse 9. "Behold, I am the law, and the light. Look unto me, and endure to the end, and ye shall live; for unto him that endureth to the end will I give eternal life."
Interesting also, that two things listed kept the people in Jerusalem from knowing about the people in the Americas: 1. Stiffneckedness, and 2. Unbelief. Would it be unreasonable to say that those two things are things which generally can cause one to not understand, or is this more of a specific cause / effect situation? My guess would be it is applicable generally. (verse 18)
