Back from vacation, and picking up right where I left off. 2 Nephi 11. (As I read, I jot notes down, and highlight things, even before finishing the sentence or even the line...) >Reading v2 and started v3, I underlined that Isaiah had seen Christ, Nephi had seen Christ and that Jacob had also seen Christ. I numbered each of these and put 3 WITNESSES in the margin. The next line is "Wherefore, by the words of three, God hath said, I will establish my word." ->I feel that the important significance of The 3 Witnesses is mainly the reason that Isaiah is quoted and Jacob is featured in Nephi's works. -->I mean, Jacob gets his own time at the chisel. And I'm sure there was other stuff going on in Nephi's city. But these 2 additions (Jacob & Isaiah) to Nephi's writings is HUGE.
>(v1)...only these things have I caused to be written, for the things which I have written sufficeth me.
->So there was so much he could have written about, but these are the words that mattered to him to include.
------>What words matter to us to write down? When I write- what matters to me? What do I include?
