The Last Supper and Overcoming Betrayal

 

 

The vital part, the heart and soul of Christian Science, is Love. Without this, the letter is but the dead body of Science, — pulseless, cold, inanimate.

SH 113:5

The Passover, which Jesus ate with his disciples in the month Nisan on the night before his crucifixion, was a mournful occasion, a sad supper taken at the close of day, in the twilight of a glorious career with shadows fast falling around; and this supper closed forever Jesus’ ritualism or concessions to matter.

His followers, sorrowful and silent, anticipating the hour of their Master’s betrayal, partook of the heavenly manna, which of old had fed in the wilderness the persecuted followers of Truth. Their bread indeed came down from heaven. It was the great truth of spiritual being, healing the sick and casting out error.

 

SH 32:28-8
From Concord Express – A Christian Science Study Resource: The King James Version of the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s published writings

 

Where are the boats?

Excerpt below:

From the February 13, 1989 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Challenging times.
Progress needed.
Time to change, to move on.

“Camp by the sea.”
I obey, go on to the shore.

But wait!
There are no boats!
The Pharaoh changes heart, his army closes in.

Is this betrayal?
Didn’t I listen?
Father, didn’t You speak?

Go forward?
There are no boats!

The path leads through.
Not over, not around.

Father, my eyes are fixed on You.
