"The Son of man must be lifted up"

The strong light of Christian Science banishes the darkness of materialism and superficial theology, which had hidden from us the true and helpful meaning of Jesus' works and words.

Probably every Christian loves the account of the conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus, as it is reported in John's Gospel. This master of Israel "came to Jesus by night." The interest which led Nicodemus to Jesus is without doubt traceable to the deep impression made upon him by Jesus' works. When the Master had pointed out to this inquirer the need for a new birth "of water and of the Spirit"—purification and spiritualization of thought—he conversed further with him on heavenly things. He rebuked his lack of faith, and pointed to the need for regeneration through the Son, who came to reveal the only real, spiritual man, unfallen and coexistent with God.
