For nearly twenty centuries the hearts of all Christian people have been made glad by the life-story of their beloved Master, Jesus of Nazareth. They have lifted their voices in gratitude and praise to their heavenly Father for having sent into the world such a manifestation of divine goodness, and because, with the passing of time, it is becoming ever clearer that Christ Jesus is indeed the exemplification of eternal Truth. Greater, however, than all other causes for gratitude is the conviction that reigns in the consciousness of the Christian who has learned, through the final and complete revelation of Christ, Truth, as given to this age by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, that every spiritual victory won by the personal Jesus may be won by all mankind.

If we would indeed earn the right to call ourselves by the name of Christian Scientist, we must joyously accept the great responsibility implied by the name. We must give to the world concrete evidence that with the new-old light of divine Science shed upon our path we find ourselves equipped, not merely to gaze upon the historic epochs of Jesus' matchless life, but, step by step, to do the works he did in overcoming the false beliefs of sin, disease, and death.

We are furnished in the Bible with but little authentic information of the early years of our great Way-shower; but surely no such consummation of a life-work as we here see portrayed, could have been built on a foundation of less than the highest and holiest qualities. We may, however, lift the curtain and gaze with reverent eyes on certain undisputed facts which have a direct bearing upon the lives of all mankind.
