Shining a light on the weekly Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly®
The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
With these words, Jesus announces the imminent culmination of his ministry. He has entered Jerusalem for the last time and been publicly honored by crowds of people upon his arrival (see vv. 12, 13). Now, however, he is describing spiritual glorification—God’s exalting of His Son, which will be illustrated in the Master’s resurrection and ascension.
The Bible Lessons serve as weekly study guides as well as the sermon in every Christian Science Sunday church service. Learn more at BibleLesson.com
