THE DIVINE MESSAGE
Mary Baker Eddy was a devout student of the Bible from her early years. She consistently taught the sacredness of the Scriptures and the need to gain their spiritual import.
The spiritual understanding of familiar passages, such as the twenty-third Psalm or the parables of the Master, may be gained with little difficulty; but the spiritual significance of stories from the Old Testament is often obscured by material sense, which sees in them little more than a historical record. On this account the Bible has remained to many people a closed book until its treasures have been unlocked by Mrs. Eddy's work, the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."
One of the most illuminating passages which this remarkable volume contains is the explanation of "Christ" on page 332, which reads: "Christ is the true idea voicing good, the divine message from God to men speaking to the human consciousness. The Christ is incorporeal, spiritual,—yea, the divine image and likeness, dispelling the illusions of the senses; the Way, the Truth, and the Life, healing the sick and casting out evils, destroying sin, disease, and death." On the same page we read, "Jesus demonstrated Christ."
