Ye Are Built Upon My Rock

The echo of the Sermon at the Temple / Worship of the Shalems continues: if the participants "do these things," they will be "built upon the rock."

Then Christ exhorts the participants to stay faithful, with light imagery employed in various permutations (remember that Nephi and Lehi allude to the Worship of the Shalems culminating in coming out of darkness into the light).

At the end, Christ goes to the Father: a cloud overshadows him and he ascends.

All three of these are images of being inside, seeing into or entering into the Holy of Holies.
