At once Jesus turned thought from himself by propounding the question. "Unto what is the kingdom of God like?" And then he likened this kingdom to the leaven "hid in three measures of meal," which is to leaven the whole. Not all of his hearers understood, but they had seen the kingdom come, the eternal Christ made manifest. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, proved the divine beatitude that the pure in heart shall see God; for through her pure affection for God and man she beheld the divine Principle and rule which governed the Master's marvelous ministrations. Through her discovery a great light has again broken upon human consciousness before which sin, disease, death—all inharmony—are fleeing. Are not these "signs following" the promised evidence of the leaven which leaveneth the whole? Is not this the forever coming of God's kingdom on earth?
