The Bible is at the heart of Christian Science. Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, took to the Bible instinctively as a child and studied it intensively as an adult. Through this study she discovered the healing power of God and experienced it firsthand. This inspired her to delve even deeper into the Scriptures, finding their spiritual meaning, which ultimately led to her writing the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Together the Bible and Science and Health are the pastor of the Christian Science Church, which a weekly Bible Lesson is read from. Learn more about the Bible Lesson
The following Bible passages introduce this week's Bible Lesson. The full Lesson is comprised of Bible passages and correlative scriptures from Science and Health.
. . . God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
. . . and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us;
Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.
The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.
Thy hands have made me and fashioned me:
I will extol thee, my God, O king;
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
