Sunday School Notes and Comments

Teaching in the Christian Science Sunday School

For our guidance in teaching we study the methods of Christ Jesus and of Mary Baker Eddy. In pondering the Gospels we see that Jesus' teaching was informal, simple, and spontaneous. He used everyday incidents and similes, interesting to and understandable by the people of his time. He spoke also with compassion, authority, and healing. He often approached his listeners through questions, and in some instances he repeated his questions.

Mrs. Eddy has used the method of question and answer as, for example, in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," in the chapter called "Recapitulation," which consists of questions and answers, and also in the chapter "Questions and Answers" in "Miscellaneous Writings." This method of teaching, by questions and answers, may be taken as a guide in our Sunday school work.
