From the November 1907 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Probably no question ever asked is fraught with such profound and universal import to humanity as is the question once put to Jesus by a student of the law in these words: "Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" The question occurs in an incident related in the tenth chapter of Luke's Gospel. Jesus made no direct answer, but by a counter-question drew from the student his own knowledge as to what rule the law prescribed upon the subject of gaining eternal life.
