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.
Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth:
Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.
Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.
I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
