Resurrection is for everyone

Christ Jesus' crucifixion was the consummate self-sacrifice made in behalf of humanity. Without question, if Jesus had not faced and conquered death, as he did on Calvary and in the tomb, the world would be without this decisive, guiding example of the reality of everlasting life.

In humble gratitude to the Saviour, Christ Jesus, modern-day disciples are roused to inquire about the deeper significance not only of his crucifixion but of his resurrection as well. Christian Science explains that the Master presented for our benefit a spiritual exemplification of man's God-given dominion over death, of man's immortal being and life. Viewed in this light, resurrection signifies spiritualized thinking transcending and superseding material belief about man. As metaphysically interpreted in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, "resurrection" is: "Spiritualization of thought; a new and higher idea of immortality, or spiritual existence; material belief yielding to spiritual understanding." Science and Health, p. 593.
