A More Excellent Sacrifice
We begin to "witness" the "elders" and we see that their stories have temple dimensions. Abel's sacrifice is of the firstlings -- it's the same as God's own sacrifice, which is laid on the table for consumption in the Worship of the Shalems. Enoch ascends to heaven and overcomes death, which Alma shows us is God's gift to the shalems.
