"BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, I AM."

In Christian Science faith grows out of an understood Principle, while the world's philosophies and sciences have all begun with the phenomena of experience and reasoned therefrom. In very large measure Christian belief also has found its beginning not in a demonstrable apprehension of the spiritual meaning of Scripture statement, but in that literalism of verbal interpretation which has given birth to the many conflicting creeds of Christendom.

As defined in our text-book (p. 579), the term Abraham stands for "fidelity; faith in the divine Life," and when this meaning is substituted in Christ Jesus' declaration, "Verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am," the identity of the teaching of Christian Science with the teaching of Christ Jesus is made clear, and the significance of these words of the Master begins to grow apace for all who meditate upon them.
