The Savior and the divine nature

For the Lesson titled “Christ Jesus” from February 24–March 2, 2014

This week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson, “Christ Jesus,” opens in the Golden Text with a declaration of Jesus’ mission—“to be the Saviour of the world” (I John 4:14). The Responsive Reading informs us that, through a knowledge of God and of Jesus, we “might be partakers of the divine nature” (II Peter 1:4) and enjoy the grace and peace this knowledge brings.

What is the divine nature of the Savior of the world, of which we, too, can partake?

Section 1 speaks of eyewitnesses who saw Jesus’ divine nature, or Christly “majesty,” and refers to the glory of his life’s work foretold by the prophets (see II Peter 1:16, 17, citation 2). In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy describes that life’s work as “reveal[ing] the Science of celestial being” (p. 26, cit. 3), demonstrating the reliability of divine power to bless mankind.
