The Lamb "without blemish"

When the children of Israel were in bondage to the Egyptians, we read that the Lord told Moses and his brother Aaron that He would send a plague over all the land to punish the Egyptians for their sins. But the word came to the Israelites that they should "take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house." They were instructed that the lamb was to be "without blemish," and that the "two side posts" and "the upper door post of the houses" were to be marked with its blood. This would be a sign by which the people could make themselves known, in order that the Lord might protect the children of Israel, and spare them from the evil that was to befall the land.

"Spiritual teaching must always be by symbols," says Mary Baker Eddy, the much loved Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, on page 575 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Therefore Christian Scientists are forever grateful for the spiritual interpretation of Bible passages which their textbook gives them.
