Bethlehem, 131:that John the Baptist had been cast into prison, Christ took up the task laid down by him, and wentBethlehem, 131:field of the world makes that field different. Christ went about doing good, "teaching in theBethlehem, 132:and with a full knowledge of His mission, Christ now enters into the period of active work whichBethlehem, 135:[135] I. Another period of service is ended. Christ faced another interior crisis, and this time,Bethlehem, 135:the other tremendous experiences through which Christ passed would have been relatively overlookedBethlehem, 136:the structure of the presentation of Christ as we were meant to get it. The three initiationsBethlehem, 136:the reader, in that it seems to belittle the Christ, but it is profoundly necessary for us to seeBethlehem, 136:divine Nature. We do not yet know the Father. Christ revealed Him, but the Father Himself remainsBethlehem, 136:given peculiarly to the Occident by Jesus Christ. As we consider these initiations, the threeBethlehem, 137:felt. [137] In His earthly life, therefore, Christ did two things: He revealed the triple nature ofBethlehem, 137:made flesh; they embody the musical chord of Christ's life, as they will be embodied in the life ofBethlehem, 137:revealing more and more divinity in the Man, Christ Jesus. The experience of Christ, as we haveBethlehem, 137:in the Man, Christ Jesus. The experience of Christ, as we have been seeing, was to pass from oneBethlehem, 138:done and in order to understand the magnitude of Christ's achievement. Transfiguration is notBethlehem, 139:dynamic difficulty. It is integration which Christ so fully exemplified, thus resolving theBethlehem, 139:effect. This problem of the two selves, which Christ so strikingly synthesized in Himself, is theBethlehem, 140:of divinity. Behind the manifestation of Jesus Christ lay aeons of experience. God had beenBethlehem, 140:individuals, as the ages slipped away. Then Christ came, and in process of time, as a definiteBethlehem, 140:immediately may be, is God's great gift to man. Christ, as the Personality that healed the divisionBethlehem, 140:that healed the division in human nature, and Christ, as the synthesis of the higher and the lowerBethlehem, 140:does the expression of the indwelling Christ life and consciousness become possible. The fact ofBethlehem, 141:call the "individual." It is here again that Christ achieved success, and the second duality, whichBethlehem, 141:must be brought into a close relation. This, Christ demonstrated in the Transfiguration, when,Bethlehem, 141:unity. Rules and fixations and considerations Christ had surmounted, and consequently He functionedBethlehem, 142:as the One Who represented to them Divinity. Christ, therefore, at the Transfiguration, unified inBethlehem, 142:There is a still higher synthesis, and this Christ also summarized in Himself - the synthesis ofBethlehem, 143:they are doing, and why they do it. In Himself Christ blended and fused the part with the whole,Bethlehem, 143:nature and His divine understanding and wisdom, Christ blended in Himself the collectiveBethlehem, 144:to have in mind another at-one-ment which Christ made. He unified in Himself the past and theBethlehem, 144:habitually dwells. Moses therefore appeared with Christ as typifying man's emotional past, and theBethlehem, 144:is to be later superseded when the message of Christ's life is duly understood, pouring throughBethlehem, 144:man's consciousness in ever greater fullness. Christ indicated the new synthetic commandment whichBethlehem, 144:the understanding of goodwill and light which Christ radiated upon the mount of Transfiguration.Bethlehem, 145:strength of the Lord," stood [145] beside Jesus Christ as the representative of all the schools ofBethlehem, 145:standards of achievement as much beyond those of Christ as His expression is beyond ours, isBethlehem, 145:and wisdom of God, have been revealed to us by Christ. For us today, and for our immediate goal,Bethlehem, 145:For us today, and for our immediate goal, Christ stands as the Eternal Prophet, to whom Elias andBethlehem, 145:when recognizing, as we do, the historicity of Christ's existence) is the symbol of the formBethlehem, 145:of God, latent yet with infinite potentialities. Christ revealed the love-nature in the Father.Bethlehem, 146:it reveals and expresses the divine, indwelling Christ. Matter, the Virgin Mary, reveals God. Form,Bethlehem, 146:this is God's gift to us at the Transfiguration. Christ was "very God of very God," but He was alsoBethlehem, 146:as the means whereby the divine, indwelling Christ can be revealed, we shall gain a new vision ofBethlehem, 146:her body, as the repository of the hidden Christ, and we shall look forward to that momentous dayBethlehem, 146:Oxford Edition, p. 444. Thus, for humanity, Christ stood revealed as the expression of God. ThereBethlehem, 147:- The Transfiguration The life of the indwelling Christ produces the transformation of the physicalBethlehem, 148:of the love-nature of God which the cosmic Christ, the second Person in the Trinity, is engaged inBethlehem, 148:loved and followed, and it is this aspect of Christ - the inner radiant reality - to which theBethlehem, 148:bear testimony, not only in connection with Christ, but in lesser degree in connection with eachBethlehem, 149:was the power and mystery of divinity which Christ revealed to the astonished gaze of His threeBethlehem, 149:and they participated in an experience wherein Christ Jesus stood before them as perfected Man,Bethlehem, 150:consideration of the various unifications which Christ had made in Himself will have prepared usBethlehem, 151:radiance from others. But the light which was in Christ shone forth in fullness from His wholeBethlehem, 151:Light-bearers of all time, and we feel that in Christ the light of the ages is focused, and theBethlehem, 151:in our consideration of the light which was in Christ, and the rapture of the Apostles at itsBethlehem, 152:with the transcendent goodness and wonder which Christ revealed. From this realization he passes onBethlehem, 154:in connection with the three friends of Jesus Christ. I cannot here touch upon the friendships ofBethlehem, 154:cannot here touch upon the friendships of Jesus Christ. They are very real and very deep, andBethlehem, 154:are timeless and eternal, and the friends of Christ are to be found in every race (Christian orBethlehem, 154:And be it remembered, it is only the friends of Christ who have any right to be dogmatic about Him,Bethlehem, 155:So, in the apt symbology of the Scripture, Christ's three friends stood for the three aspects ofBethlehem, 155:duality of humanity is revealed through Christ, and His threefold personality and His essentialBethlehem, 155:saw the light which shone in the Person of Jesus Christ, and for them He was more than the PersonBethlehem, 155:of the past, the present and the future, Christ and those who were immediately His friends, metBethlehem, 156:Himself which He can and does at times accord. Christ's three friends had been admitted to a degreeBethlehem, 156:be rightly directed. It was necessary that Christ should have with Him those who could be dependedBethlehem, 157:standing in the illumination which radiates from Christ, and his intuition must be active, so thatBethlehem, 157:is specific and true for all time to all people. Christ revealed the quality of the divine natureBethlehem, 158:met with God in the glorified Person of Jesus Christ. We have looked on at this episode through theBethlehem, 158:the language of the fourth great event in Christ's life, and many of us have attempted to share andBethlehem, 158:includes the beauty which shone forth from Christ as He stood transfigured before His three [159]Bethlehem, 159:to these five crises in the life of Jesus Christ, this third episode is called the "hut"Bethlehem, 159:that they should make three "huts," one for Christ and one for Moses and one for Elias, link upBethlehem, 159:experience is not uniquely Christian. But Christ was the first to gather together into oneBethlehem, 159:furthering God's work for humanity; and Christ's example is rapidly bearing fruit and bringingBethlehem, 159:of God is but an empty form of words, and Christ and His Apostles were in error when TheyBethlehem, 159:knowing ourselves to be divine because Christ and the Church of all ages have borne testimony toBethlehem, 160:known. The angels spoke the word, embodying Christ's mission on His behalf. At the Baptism HeBethlehem, 160:to this particular crisis in the life of Christ and to listen to His words. The power and the rightBethlehem, 160:and the right to speak is now conferred upon the Christ, and it is interesting to note that theBethlehem, 160:Gospel and in many of the parables) was given by Christ only after He had been through thisBethlehem, 160:Again God gave evidence that He recognized Christ's Messiahship, which word is man's interpretationBethlehem, 160:Father, to carry out the will of God. That which Christ had recognized in the Temple as a child wasBethlehem, 161:question as to the nature of that mission which Christ came to forward, and what constituted theBethlehem, 161:an example that we should follow in His steps. Christ Himself laid no emphasis upon the death onBethlehem, 162:the new birth is [162] dependent upon belief in Christ, when power is given to us to "become theBethlehem, 162:point of recognizing and believing in the cosmic Christ, "the Lamb slain from the foundation of theBethlehem, 162:becomes possible, for the life of that universal Christ, animating every form of divine expression,Bethlehem, 162:the life," (Gen., IX, 4.) and it is the living Christ that makes it possible for all to becomeBethlehem, 162:citizens of that kingdom. It is the life of Christ in each of us which makes us sons of the Father,Bethlehem, 162:story does an opposite statement find support. Christ, at the communion service, gave His disciplesBethlehem, 162:of Christianity in the world.
