Bible Study Questions for December 22nd, 2018

Saturday at 10:00am EST

“TEXT: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. — ISAIAH ix. 6.

“To the senses, Jesus was the son of man: in Science, man is the son of God. The material senses could not cognize the Christ, or Son of God: it was Jesus’ approximation to this state of being that made him the Christ-Jesus, the Godlike, the anointed.

“The prophet whose words we have chosen for our text, prophesied the appearing of this dual nature, as both human and divinely endowed, the personal and the impersonal Jesus.

“He healed and taught by the wayside, in humble homes: to arrant hypocrite and to dull disciples he explained the Word of God, which has since ripened into interpretation through Science.

“In no one thing seemed he less human and more divine than in his unfaltering faith in the immortality of Truth. Referring to this, he said, ‘Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away!’ and they have not: they still live; and are the basis of divine liberty, the medium of Mind, the hope of the race.”
