Using the key

The Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, is an extraordinary volume. Science and Health companions with the Bible; it is a key unlocking the scientific healing treasures in the Scriptures.

The concept of a key and the concept of what it opens unfolded in Bible times. According to one commentary, "Both in biblical and rabbinic literature, handing over a key is a metaphorical expression signifying not an appointment as a porter but the authorization to exercise complete power in a house." J. Massyngberde Ford, The Anchor Bible: Revelation (Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1975), p. 416 .
