I love this article. It seems to me that we can’t possibly exert too much time and study to not only the Book of Mormon, but to key concepts such as the vision of the Tree of Life found therein.
In a short but sweet explanation, we learn that not only does the vision of the Tree of Life in all probability extends directly to the Holy of Holies, but that where only the High Priest had access to view this “almond tree” menorah within, all mankind has accessibility to the path which leads to the Tree of Life during mortality. And specifically, the temple ordinances of the restored Gospel lead one to a higher understanding of what assurances one might secure by obtaining a free-will covenant with God.
