Our love for Jesus

How much do we love Jesus? It’s an important question to ask ourselves, not just at the Easter season but at any time—because our love for him and our gratitude for his selfless example are essential to understanding the truth he taught and expressed.

As so many of us know, Jesus was born of Mary. The Bible says, “When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 1:18). 

Jesus’ virgin birth explains his dual nature. He was human, born of a woman, but he expressed the Christ, the divine nature, “without measure.” In the textbook of Christian Science Mary Baker Eddy explains this dual appearing: “Jesus was the offspring of Mary’s self-conscious communion with God. Hence he could give a more spiritual idea of life than other men, and could demonstrate the Science of Love—his Father or divine Principle.
