strtoupper('“t')he Truth Which Is in Christ”

At the end of his life, the seminal event for Enos was still the initial encounter with God in the forest. Indeed, how could it not be? For however much Enos received revelation from the Lord thereafter as he fulfilled his commission to prophesy, that first experience was transcendental, both in the great effort which accomplished it, and the power of the experience itself.

As with Jacob, Enos testifies of Christ. The potential conflict between the law and the preaching of Christ that Sherem proposed is certainly not present in Enos' understanding. He understands the coming Messiah, and preached that understanding.
