Christ—no longer an abstraction to me

When I first began to seriously study Christian Science as an adult, I realized I didn’t have a clear understanding of the Christ. I knew from having attended a Christian Science Sunday School through my mid-teens that Christ referred to Jesus’ divine nature, but I can’t say I really understood what it was and what it did. 

In my spiritual studies, I continually came across references to Christ in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and Mary Baker Eddy’s other writings, and I felt it was important to understand why, for instance, she would place the term Christ before Jesus’ name. I also wanted to know how Jesus healed through Christ. So I made a commitment to learn more.
