"...all things are become new"

Can we possibly imagine how she must have felt? It was the morning of the resurrection, when Mary Magdalene had come to Jesus' tomb and discovered that her Saviour was actually alive. He had not been destroyed. And she heard the clear angel message "He is not here: for he is risen ...." For Mary Magdalene and Jesus' other followers, many of whom had been crushed to despair by their Master's crucifixion, the reality of the risen Lord now restored their hope and offered a promise of new life for them as well.

The founder of the Christian Science Sentinel, Mary Baker Eddy, wrote extensively on the spiritual implications of the crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension of Christ Jesus. In her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, she explains: "Through all the disciples experienced, they became more spiritual and understood better what the Master had taught. His resurrection was also their resurrection. It helped them to raise themselves and others form spiritual dulness and blind belief in God into the perception of infinite possibilities."
