From the February 1917 issue of The Christian Science Journal

To the student of Christian Science the incidents related in the Bible are not regarded merely as records of past and gone human personalities, but serve rather to typify various states and stages of mortal thought in process of correction. Some very good persons, such as Jacob, David, and Elijah, are known to have made grave mistakes; but these mistakes, when seen and corrected, served only to advance these spiritual seers into yet higher realms of vision, even as men today "may rise on stepping-stones of their dead selves to higher things.
