What’s happening? Alma quotes the prophets to testify of Jesus Christ.
Why does it matter? Testimony increases by listening to a prophet, but it is also reinforced when there is more than one witness.
Between the lines: Alma is handing us the path to salvation by pointing us to our Brother, Jesus Christ.

33:16 Why is it important to understand Jesus’ mercy for us?
“I have learned there are many who believe Jesus is the Son of God and that He is the Savior of the World, but they do not believe that He can save them. They believe in His identity, but not in His power to cleanse and purify and to save…. As our understanding of the Atonement increases, our ability to forgive ourselves and others increases as well. When we more fully understand the depths to which the Savior descended, the breadth to which He reached, and the heights to which He ascended, we can more readily accept that our own sins are within that vast sphere of his conquered domain. ~ TR Callister
33:22-23 What do we receive when we trust the Lord with our burdens?
