I Unfold Unto You a Mystery
I read this with the kids this week. Alma's doctrine of revelation clearly comes from or informs the Worship of the Shalems. He's unfolding a "mystery," he twice describes resurrection in the language of dressing, and he identifies it as something that doesn't happen until Christ comes. This corresponds to the action in the Hekal, when the Lord-Melchizedek descends (Christ arrives) and dresses the initiates.
