"He gave them power"

It is recorded in Matthew's Gospel that when Christ Jesus "had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease" (10:1).

What was this power which the Master bestowed? Was it some mysterious force reserved for and conferred on the favored few? Christian Science refutes such an explanation. It maintains, and proves, that this power was a spiritual state of thought which Christian Science has recaptured, the results of which this great Science has succeeded in approximating in the present age. Class teaching in Christian Science equips the pupil to demonstrate in some measure the healing power understood and utilized by Jesus and his disciples.
