The Mount of Vision

The book of Exodus contains the story of Moses' journey to the top of Mount Sinai to receive the commands of God. For this purpose he took up with him two tables of stone, the writing tablets of that period, on which to inscribe those commands. But the story will have little significance for us if we visualize it merely as something that happened a few thousand years ago, and if the only mental picture we have of the occurrence is that of a man trudging up a hill and carrying two pieces of rock.

What does this story convey to students of Christian Science when spiritually comprehended in the light thrown upon the Bible by the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy? Our Leader says (ibid., p. 241), "Take away the spiritual signification of Scripture, and that compilation can do no more for mortals than can moonbeams to melt a river of ice." And later on the same page she continues, "We should strive to reach the Horeb height where God is revealed."
