A WELL-KNOWN SONG made famous by Bob Marley says "emancipate yourself from mental slavery," which might just come to some of you as you study this week's Christian Science Bible Lesson titled "Mortals and Immortals." The citations beckon us to hear God's message of emancipation from mortality—from a life stuck in finite matter.

The Lesson opens with a Golden Text from Psalms, which says that God "redeemeth thy life from destruction" and "crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies" (103:4). "To redeem" usually means to get or win something back. This week's Lesson shows that through recognition of our close and direct relationship with God, we are redeemed from mortality and come to know our true immortal nature.
