Bible Notes

[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."
