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, from which a weekly Bible Lesson is read. Learn more about the Bible Lesson
The following Bible passages introduce this week's Bible Lesson. The full Lesson is comprised of citations from the Bible and correlative passages from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.
. . . be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create:
Sing unto the Lord, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised:
For all the gods of the people are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.
Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.
. . . the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The Lord reigneth.
Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.
Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the Lord, because he cometh to judge the earth.
O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
. . . And all the people said, Amen, and praised the Lord.
