Jesus of Nazareth, the master Christian, was habitually conscious of the omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience, and infinity of God. To him the joy and freedom of natural goodness and love were present at all times and under all circumstances. Never once throughout his brief ministry of three years did he desert his realization of the great spiritual fact that the loveliness of Love was all around him. Never once did he deviate from the narrow way of the consciousness of the omnipotence and ever-presence of divine Principle, infinite Life, Truth, Love.

In an article entitled "Spirit and Law," in her book "Miscellaneous Writings," Mary Baker Eddy refers to some of the many aggressive, confused, and cruel manifestations of mere mortal sense testimony and to Jesus' obvious mental attitude towards such falsities. This is what she says (p. 258): "Our great Ensample, Jesus of Nazareth, met and abolished this unrelenting false claim of matter with the righteous scorn and power of Spirit. When, through Mind, he restored sight to the blind, he figuratively and literally spat upon matter; and, anointing the wounded spirit with the great truth that God is All, he demonstrated the healing power and supremacy of the law of Life and Love." Surely, then, it must be true to say that Jesus of Nazareth could not and did not recognize as real anything for which God had made no provision, anything which God Himself was incapable of knowing.
