Jesus Denied Matter

Jesus never identified himself with matter, or mortal mind, in any of its guises. To him matter, whether it claimed to have weight or form, to be solid or liquid, offered neither help nor hindrance. Always Jesus maintained in consciousness his statement. "I and my Father are one," and that oneness excluded any admission of or support from matter. It was this inseparability from God. Spirit, that kept him above mortal-mindedness, or the material world. His own words, in the seventeenth chapter of John, witness to the truth of his statement, "I am not of the world."

The beloved Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science clearly perceived Jesus' apartness from the world, for she has written in her book "No and Yes" (p. 36): "Jesus' true and conscious being never left heaven for earth. It abode forever above, even while mortals believed it was here."
