Jesus of Nazareth realized the Christ

The Christian Science Monitor

Jesus of Nazareth realized the Christ. He made real to human sense "the divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error." The quoted words are the definition of "Christ," found on page 583 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Because the manifestation of God is infinite, its realization is not limited but applies to every individual as it did to Christ Jesus, which is a fundamental fact of Christianity that mankind must recognize.

Christian Science states so simply the universal, eternal Science of being and its Principle, God, that every one may understand it and realize the Christ,—may make real and practical here and now the expression of God that exalted Jesus. Christian Science shows that as Christ, Truth, is realized, all that is not like Truth loses all semblance of reality,—is seen to be error, the opposite of Truth. Thus the Messianic works, commonly called miracles, are explained and shown to be inseparable from the realization of the Christ, the Truth; for full recognition of the infinitude of righteousness eliminates sin, adherence to the fact of health dispels disease, knowledge of the reality of life excludes death, understanding of the allness of good reveals the nothingness of evil.
