INDIVIDUAL RESURRECTION

JESUS, our Way-shower, was not spared the crucifixion, but he did refuse to accept it as the termination of his being. Although his hour of trial included betrayal, indignity, ingratitude, scorn, jealousy, hypocrisy, and physical torture, these evils called forth no evil response from Jesus. His concern was to prove man's divine sonship, to present the eternal Christ, and to yield the human to the divine. This relinquishment of the human for the divine brought the reward and glories of resurrection.

If our experience has seemed dark, we can refuse to delay any longer the claiming of the joys of the resurrecting experience. On page 593 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy defines "resurrection" as, "Spiritualization of thought; a new and higher idea of immortality, or spiritual existence; material belief yielding to spiritual understanding."
