Mormon sealing up Small plates, witness for Amaleki


At times in the small plates, people say they witness the person before them writing their addition. What if part of what Mormon is doing in the Words of Mormon is to be that witness for Amaleki? No one has said that they saw Amaleki write. But Mormon can say, “I wasn’t there, but I know who was! I have large plates where King Benjamin describes that event! I can vouch for Amaleki.”

(Also, if my creative reading is correct, Mormon goes on to write about the prophecies and their fulfillments between Amaleki and himself, so in a sense he witnesses for all of those prophets as well!)
