WORDS OF CURRENT INTEREST

[The words in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly designated to be read in Christian Science churches on April 2, 1961.]

Pinnacle (Matt. 4:5)

The corresponding Greek word means literally "little wing," and commentators are uncertain what the word was intended to imply in this context. The "pinnacle" may have been the top of Solomon's Porch (compare John 10:23) or, perhaps, of the royal porch, which, according to Josephus, "commanded a dizzy abyss," or it may simply have been the topmost point of the main Temple building.
