"THE SUPREMACY OF SPIRIT"

"The supremacy of Spirit was the foundation on which Jesus built," writes Mary Baker Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 138). She continues, "His sublime summary points to the religion of Love." Christian Science is based squarely on that same foundation. Its teachings glorify God, who is, in the words of Paul (Eph. 4:6), "above all, and through all, and in you all."

The word "supreme" is derived from the superlative form of the Latin word superus, meaning "that is above, upper," and thus it literally means over or above all in the highest possible degree. In the Bible the word "highest" is sometimes reverently capitalized and used as a synonym for God. These instances point to that "sublime summary" based on "the supremacy of Spirit," which Jesus taught.
