CHRIST DESTROYS ERROR

There are many people who do not make a distinction between the words "Christ" and "Jesus," and thus they use the words as synonymous terms. Mary Baker Eddy writes in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 333): "The word Christ is not properly a synonym for Jesus, though it is commonly so used. Jesus was a human name, which belonged to him in common with other Hebrew boys and men, for it is identical with the name Joshua, the renowned Hebrew leader. On the other hand, Christ is not a name so much as the divine title of Jesus. Christ expresses God's spiritual, eternal nature."

Further enlightenment is gained in this definition (ibid., p. 583): "Christ. The divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error."
