Ye Have Both Heard My Voice, and Seen Me

Having conducted them through the Worship of the Shalems, Christ tells his disciples that they have heard his voice, and seen him.  This reminds me of what I pointed out the other day about Nephi's take on the Isaiah chapters: that he knows them as things that are spoken and witnessed, and not just as words on a page.  Nephi also tells us that he and Jacob both saw "the Redeemer," as Isaiah did, in the context of introducing the arc of Isaiah chapters in 2 Nephi.  Of course, in the climax of the Worship of the Shalems, the participants entered the strait gate and narrow way and met the Lord in person.
