The lack of time related references in the record of Christ’s visitation at Bountiful may be due to the sacred temple-related symbolism of His ministry. With Mormon as a guide, it’s as if readers get to enter a scriptural holy of holies, a place where time stands still and eternal principles and truths are manifested unto all who are spiritually prepared.
