The Oneness of Infinity

On pages 35 and 36 of "No and Yes," Mary Baker Eddy writes. "Jesus taught and demonstrated the infinite as one, and not as two." Not only did Jesus teach men that he and the Father were one, but in every action, throughout his career, he demonstrated this fact. He spoke of Truth and what it could do for them, but he also demonstrated Truth in eliminating the discords which were the negation of health; he spoke of Love, of the fatherhood of God, but he also expressed it in friendship, in tenderness and forgiveness, where with others there had been condemnation and hatred: he spoke of eternal Life and its great message to humanity, but he also broke the mesmerism of death, for others and for himself. In the midst of evil and of mortality he proved that Truth and Life and Love are infinite. This oneness with the Father he had made his own, in continuous thought and action, from the moment that he appeared as the Messiah among the people: and he brought it in continuous loving exhortation and proof to all who listened to him.

John 17 we read. "And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one." In his vision of the oneness of infinity he saw that it belonged not merely to the few chosen and taught of him; it was for all. In the tenth chapter of John's Gospel we read: "And there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."
