"Come up to me into the mount"

"Come up to me into the mount, and be there." These words from Exodus, occurring in a section of a Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, seemed to come as a direct message to a student who was struggling to solve what to mortal sense seemed a very difficult problem. Through earnest study of this command, and of the events in Moses' life preceding and following this call of divine Mind, much spiritual enlightenment and help were gained.

A careful study of the words "mount" or "mountain" in the Bible and in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and other works by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, shows that metaphorically the words sometimes are used to signify revelation, spiritual vision, exalted thought. With this interpretation of "mount," the spiritual signification of the events of this period in Moses' life was unfolded to the student, and with deep gratitude she acknowledged Mrs. Eddy's wonderful gift of the "key" to the Scriptures.
