This page presents the two recapitulation statements (questions and answers) that pertain to the selected group from the chapter RECAPITULATION of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. To the statements the applicable part of the glossary definition for the term ADAM is added, and the applicable Bible Lesson topic.

      -15- The Son's duality 334

     
XV. The invisible Christ was imperceptible to the so-called personal senses, whereas Jesus appeared as a bodily existence. This dual personality of the unseen and the seen, the spiritual and material, the eternal Christ and the corporeal Jesus manifest in flesh, continued until the Master's ascension, when the human, material concept, or Jesus, disappeared, while the spiritual self, or Christ, continues to exist in the eternal order of divine Science, taking away the sins of the world, as the Christ has always done, even before the human Jesus was incarnate to mortal eyes.

mortal mind - the belief that man is the offspring of mortals;
      
      -16- Eternity of the Christ 334

     
XVI. This was "the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world," - slain, that is, according to the testimony of the corporeal senses, but undying in the deific Mind. The Revelator represents the Son of man as saying (Revelation i. 17, 18): "I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead not understood]; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Science has explained me]." This is a mystical statement of the eternity of the Christ, and is also a reference to the human sense of Jesus crucified.
