The Man Jesus

Not long ago, listening to the lovely old evangelical hymn of the story of Jesus, sung in a far–off little island church, I found myself thinking, "Yes, I too love to tell the story, the story of Jesus the man—the man who has done more to help humanity than any other man who ever lived." And doesn't the world need his story today almost more, perhaps, than ever before? It is so much more than a story; it is a vivid example of how life should be lived by each one of us.

The Christ, revealed today through Christian Science in its unspent healing power, is always with us. It is the manifestation of divine Truth in action right where we are. But for us to know the Christ and live it in our daily lives, we must understand to the full the man Jesus and the methods of this man who so consistently demonstrated the Christ in daily experience. We need to find the Christ in and through the example of Jesus the man. At the same time, we will know and understand Jesus more through the power of the Christ working in us.
