There Shall One Be Ordained
In blessing the sacrament, Christ tells his Nephite disciples that "one" among them will be ordained to break and bless bread. Does this mean that the table-offering of bread in the Worship of the Shalems was the province of the high priest alone? In Matthew 6 and 3 Nephi 13, it's Christ who performs this ordinance. In Genesis 14, it's Melchizedek.
