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 January 31, 1965.]

A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another (John 13:34)

This verse is often read with an almost complete disregard of the semicolon, but the Greek, as well as the English, suggests a somewhat definite pause after the word "another" before proceeding with the remainder of the sentence. Goodspeed suggests this even more clearly by giving the following punctuation and translation: "I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must love one another."
