I was struck in my reading today of Nephi’s delight in “proving” the Christ. Nephi does not prove the Christ in the manner that we typically expect him to – there is no argumentation or evidences or rhetoric. He ‘merely’ quotes Isaiah. But if his purpose was to prove it to our spirits (awakening us), then perhaps what he wrote did exactly what he said it would – prove the Christ.
