Shining a light on the weekly Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly® 

Christ Jesus

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to-day, and for ever.

Although believers are to honor and heed Christian leaders (see v. 7), it is Christ Jesus alone whose message is lasting. The author’s pronouncement is viewed by some sources as a confession of faith—and as the basis for warning against false doctrines (see v. 9). 

John 8:28, 29
