Healing the world

For the lesson titled "Christ Jesus" from February 21-27, 2011

The bible citations from this week’s Lesson, titled “Christ Jesus,” depict a world hungry for the Christ, Truth. The corresponding readings from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures remind us that the world still needs it.

The writer of First John believed that Christ Jesus was sent by God “into the world, that we might live through him” (Golden Text, I John 4:9). Jesus was ever mindful of his divine mission. Not only did he preach the gospel and heal multitudes, but he taught his disciples to carry on his work. 

In one account (Section II), Jesus sent his 12 disciples in pairs to preach and heal. But with so “many coming and going . . . they [the disciples] did not even have time to eat” (Mark 6:31, New King James Version). Jesus said, “Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while” (Mark 6:31, cit. 6). In just the same way that he replenished himself spiritually by withdrawing into the desert to be alone with God in prayer, he taught his disciples how to do the same.
