From the June 1924 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A CAREFUL study of the history of the children of Israel shows that each of their many and varying experiences has its parallel in some form in the progress of any advancing Christian; and we are brought to the conclusion that Moses, the great leader of this people, who lived so close to God, who spoke with God so directly, face to face, that "the skin of his face shone," has recorded the steps of his own advancement in the life of a nation. These people were so near to him that they could receive the light in a degree; and this uplifting influence became such a power that they were ready to accept the higher spiritual laws of government, even though to many of them these could mean but a higher standard of human living.
