From the May 1918 issue of The Christian Science Journal

What a wonderful series of events we have in the fourth chapter of Matthew, in which Jesus' temptation in the wilderness is presented. The first of these deals with the problem of food, and when the tempter bade Jesus use his mental power, strengthened by a forty days' vigil, to produce bread from a stone, he resolutely refused because with clear vision he could see that man really lives, not by matter but by "every word" of God.
