Words and phrases from Christ’s sermon in 3 Nephi 12–14 are scattered throughout Mormon’s speech in this chapter. Mormon does not quote the sermon at random; the chapter was written to shed light on the Sermon and on Christ’s explanation of it. The fact that Mormon wove the sermon at the temple so seamlessly into his speech suggests that he knew this speech very well. He internalized Christ’s great speech such that he could effortlessly integrate it into his own address. In the same way that Mormon carefully studied and internalized the scriptures, modern readers should make the scriptures a part of themselves.
