"The divine life-link"

"Man, God's perfect reflection, is forever ... linked by Christ, Truth, with the Life that is his life"

A link is something which joins together two distinct pieces. Or, of course, it can serve as a connection between two ideas. In grammar a verb serves as a link; it brings a subject and an object together. On page 350 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, the phrase, "The divine life-link," is used as a marginal heading for one of the paragraphs, which reads: "'The Word was made flesh.' Divine Truth must be known by its effects on the body as well as on the mind, before the Science of being can be demonstrated. Hence its embodiment in the incarnate Jesus,— that life-link forming the connection through which the real reaches the unreal, Soul rebukes sense, and Truth destroys error."
