Quite recently, in your esteemed paper, a doctor reviewed most interestingly the International Sunday School Lesson, entitled, "Jesus, the Great Physician." For the benefit of your readers, allow me to state briefly the Christian Science viewpoint of healing.

In his healing of physical diseases Jesus derived his power wholly from God. His clear and full understanding of God, and of man made in the image and likeness of God, enabled him to bring about the many cures that have been generally thought of as miraculous. In full obedience to the laws of God, Jesus obtained results that were "not supernatural, but supremely natural" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, Pref., p. xi). The Principle behind his healing has always existed; but its power was exercised only sporadically before the advent of Jesus. He was its highest exponent. His disciples and Christians for two or three centuries after Jesus' time, in obedience to the same Principle, were enabled to perform the works their Master did.

We'd love to hear from you!
