From the August 1917 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Grouped around the central figure of Christianity, Jesus the Christ, and inseparably associated with his life work, being closely identified with the most intense experiences of his career, stand a company of disciples or students whose records, as given by the evangelists, command attention. To them the great Teacher gave personal instruction in divine law; in their presence he demonstrated its sacred power; upon them he placed the solemn responsibility of extending and perpetuating the healing knowledge of that law.
