The discovery by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, of the exact Science underlying the teachings and practice of Christ Jesus is being proved, in an ever-increasing degree, to be of inestimable value to the growth of true Christianity. Before the Science of Christianity was brought to light, the truth as taught and exemplified by Jesus and practiced by the primitive Christians, had been lost sight of, and its practical usefulness in human affairs obscured by a blind faith in the personality of Jesus. It remained for our inspired Leader to perceive that the Master's marvelous dominion over error was not a special gift to him, but came from his understanding of God. Her profound study of his words and works revealed the fact to her that his unfailing success was based on his understanding of the Science of Mind and his unswerving obedience to the rules of this Science.

Of the great Master Mrs. Eddy states on page 313 of the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "Jesus of Nazareth was the most scientific man that ever trod the globe." She also says (ibid., P. 98), "Mystery does not enshroud Christ's teachings, and they are not theoretical and fragmentatry, but practical and complete; and being practical and complete, they are not deprived of their essential vitality." Students of Christian Science can, therefore, turn with confidence to these practical and complete teachings for the rules with which to meet and solve every human problem, be it great or small.
