[The Biblical citations given in the Christian Science Quarterly are from the Authorized King James Version. The Bible Notes in these columns can be used, if deemed necessary, to elucidate some of the words of passages contained in the Bible Lessons. The Notes in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon designated to be read in Christian Science churches on August 30, 1942.]
"Green and truth" (John 1:17)—The Greek term "aletheia," usually rendered "truth" (as in these verses), can also mean "fact, sincerity, reality"; while alternative translations of "doxa" (here rendered "grace") would be "excellence, dignity, majesty, glory." Consequently, Moffatt suggests: "grace and reality"; though Good-speed prefers: "blessing and truth."
"There shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse" (Isa. 11:1)—The Hebrew term "choter," which is here translated "rod," can also mean "twig" or "branch"; while the term which is rendered "stem" can also refer to the trunk or stump of a tree, or to its "stock," whether in a literal or metaphorical sense. Thus we find that Moffatt has: "From the stump of Jesse a shoot shall rise;" while Kent renders: "A sprout shall spring from the stock of Jesse." Jesse was, of course, the father of David, who was regarded as a forerunner of Christ Jesus; while the Master himself is often termed "son of David" in the New Testament.
