Christ Jesus

As we approach the season which commemorates the birth of Jesus, who was to show us the way or plan of salvation from materiality, our thoughts naturally turn to the records of those who spiritually foresaw and prophesied his coming and his mission among men. Isaiah heralds the appearing of the Christ in unmistakable and triumphant language with which all Bible students are familiar: "Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

Christendom has always loved the story of the Bethlehem babe and held in profound reverence the wondrous career of the Master that followed his youthful years. Jesus realized very early what his work was to be; and without doubt even then he pointed the way of salvation which has been largely misunderstood. His compassion was great; and when he found receptivity, his healing of suffering was immediate. Daily and hourly he was found teaching, preaching, healing—living and proving the true way of life, the way of life eternal.

"Truth has furnished the key to the kingdom, and with this key Christian Science has opened the door of the human understanding. None may pick the lock nor enter by some other door." Thus writes Mary Baker Eddy, the revelator of Truth to this age, on page 99 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Her writings interpret and make plain the way Christ Jesus taught, so that all may understand.
