I've been studying Ether chapter 3 for the last week or so. In verse 9, Christ tells him that no one before him has had such exceedingly great faith. I can understand the difference between someone who has faith and someone who has little to no faith. The one with faith believes Christ although he has never seen Him. The person who has little to no faith either has tons of doubt or completely doubts.
But, if you're comparing Noah, for example, to the brother of Jared, what might be the difference? Obviously, Noah demonstrated great faith. What was it about the brother of Jared that set him apart from the previous Prophets? And, more importantly, what does such exceeding great faith look like today such that we can gain such faith??? Any thoughts?
