FOLLOWING OUR EXEMPLAR

To many, the Biblical record of the Saviour's earthly pilgrimage may seem so far removed from the problems of today as to be obscure and impractical. However, when that account is studied in conjunction with the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, then each saying attains present and vital significance, and we see that the individual experiences of all who seek to follow the Master parallel in some degree his trials and victories.

Beginning with the latter part of the third chapter of Matthew and carrying over into the fourth chapter is a series of events that may well be studied. It starts with the beautiful account of Jesus' baptism by John, after which we read, "Lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: and lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
