From the January 30, 1954 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Christ Jesus stated the high purpose to which his life among men was dedicated when he said ( John 15:13 ), "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. " Christian Science, which interprets the Master's life and shows the scientific meaning of his acts and teachings, explains that he laid down the mortal sense of life, which seemed to be his own, in order to prove that man is purely spiritual—God's immortal likeness.
