From the December 1922 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Since that memorable morning, nearly twenty centuries ago, when the birth of Jesus the Christ ushered in a new era for humanity, interest has never ceased to center about him who has come to be known as the Savior and Way-shower of mankind, by far the most compelling figure of all time. As to the circumstances that attended his humble birth, innumerable controversies have been waged; as to the minutest detail of his earthly experience there has never ceased to be the most careful scrutiny; as to the termination of his career on earth, many have denied the sacred record; as to the meaning of his unprecedented example, there still remains great diversity of opinion.
