Ye Shall Write These Sayings
Christ commands the Nephites to write his "sayings." The purpose is that the sayings will circulate through the Gentiles and bring the descendants of Christ's "people at Jerusalem" to a "knowledge" of him as their "Redeemer." It's interesting that the sayings in question, to this point, consist of a fulsome account of the Worship of the Shalems, including the pre-covenant creation and call scenario, because that indicates that an understanding of the practices of the visionary men has missionary value.
