From the March 1920 issue of The Christian Science Journal

EVEN the casual reader must observe that the Scriptures comprise a continuous record of the lives of those who have escaped some form of evil. Noah passing unharmed through the flood, Daniel escaping injury in the lions' den, the three Hebrews suffering no ill as the result of being cast into a fiery furnace, are all familiar instances of the escape of individuals; while the children of Israel led out by Moses from their execrable bondage to the Egyptians, and later in their history, when tormented by the Midianites, led by Gideon, victorious over these enemies, are well-known examples of national escape from harm.
