The Stone Rolled Away

In the four Gospels we find slightly varying accounts of the resurrection of our Lord. But, although worded somewhat differently, there are certain incidents connected with this event upon which the writers are in complete agreement, one of these being that the stone was rolled away from the sepulcher; and another, that Mary Magdalene was one of the first to make this discovery.

Students of Christian Science will be helped by a careful consideration of these two facts. Understanding so completely the unreality of matter, Jesus could, doubtless, just as easily have emerged from the tomb with the stone remaining, even as, soon after, he went through closed doors; but he probably knew that its removal was necessary to convince others that he had really risen. As ever, our Master gave positive proof of his understanding of God's allness. This is what Christian Scientists, at least in some degree, are also doing.
