How do I Log In to myBibleLesson?
myBibleLesson subscribers must have an active subscription and log in with their email address and password to access the full lesson. Your browser privacy settings must be set to "accept cookies" in order to log in. This is the default setting on all browsers . An "Error Has Occurred" message will be displayed if cookies are blocked. Learn how to enable cookies in your browser.
After logging in, you will be remembered on that computer and browser for 30 days. When accessing the site via a new computer, browser, or device, you will need to log in again. If you are having any difficulties logging in, please review the login support tips below.
"Sorry, we are unable to locate your account"
If when attempting to log in you receive a "Sorry, we are unable to locate your account" message, please double check that the email address and password are correct and that there are no spaces before or after your email and password.
Pasting your email/password into the login fields can introduce an unintended space so we recommend typing in your credentials instead. If you have multiple personal email addresses or passwords, you can try each without locking your account. If your browser is auto-filling your credentials, try retyping them in case outdated login credentials were stored by your browser. You can also clear cookies to remove any login credentials saved by your browser.
Note: passwords are case sensitive while email addresses are not.
My password doesn't work
If the login is not accepting your password or you do not remember your password, please try the "Reset Password" feature (also available from the "Forgot your password?" link at the bottom of the login page). After submitting your email address, a new password will be sent to you via email (from the address "firstname.lastname@example.org").
If you don't immediately receive the email, please double check your spam/junk folder. If you add "email@example.com" to your address book or contacts list it will ensure the email arrives at your inbox and you can then reset the password again if necessary.
Once you receive the new password, please log in to your account and use the "Change Your Password" option to update the password to one of your choosing.
My email address doesn't work
If you are certain you have an myBibleLesson account (active or inactive) and that your password is correct, please try alternate email addresses you may have subscribed with. You can verify the email address we have on file by using the "Reset Password" feature as it will only accept email addresses tied to myBibleLesson accounts.
If after trying alternate addresses as well as the "reset password" option you are still unable to login, please contact us so that our team can look up your account and assist with logging in.
There are four options that allow you to download:

Yes, high resolution images of the full myBibleLesson are embedded on the site. You may need to use your browser’s zoom feature to improve legibility.
We recommend using the most up-to-date version of the Safari, Chrome, or Firefox browsers. Internet Explorer users occasionally have some downloading or display issues. If you have an older computer (around eight+ years old) you may want to ask a technical expert which browser is best for your model of computer.
Concord Express is a Christian Science study resource that provides the ability to search and read the King James Version of the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, other writings by Mary Baker Eddy, and the Christian Science Hymnal. All Bible Lesson citations are links that open up each citation as it appears in the respective book. When you click on a link, a new browser tab will open to Concord Express and you can read passages surrounding it. If you would like to conduct a search, use the Concord Express sidebar search or select Concord express in the “More” tab on mobile. Internet is required to utilize this feature.

High resolution images of myBibleLesson are now embedded on myBibleLesson.com. In order to enlarge the type size while viewing myBibleLesson online, you need to zoom into the images. On a mobile device, this is most commonly done by using multi-touch swipe actions. On a desktop browser, you need to use the browser's zoom features often found in a View menu. Downloading the PDFs will provide you with the highest resolution option and is recommended. It is not possible to enlarge the type size when printing the images or PDFs. Printing is best when using the downloaded PDF. If you are interested in reading the Full-Text format online with the ability to enlarge the type size, we recommend you subscribe to eBibleLesson.
In addition to the current week’s lesson, the lessons for the three coming weeks and the previous week are available. You can use the “Choose a Lesson” option in the “Menu” or navigate using the right sidebar or “More” tab on mobile.

- On Android devices, open the browser’s “Menu” options. Depending on the browser, you may have an option to “Add shortcut to home” directly from the menu or you may first need to bookmark the page.

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is a law designed to prevent the collection and retention of personally identifiable information of anyone under the age of 13 without parental permission. We follow COPPA standards as a best practice for nonprofit organizations.
In order to determine who is under 13 and whether we need parental permission to collect personally identifiable information, the law prescribes asking for age in a “neutral” manner. Asking for a person’s date of birth is the generally accepted format for doing this.
We will not use the information in any other way other than to comply with the COPPA standards and to provide better service through aggregate statistics.
We certainly take heed of Mary Baker Eddy’s statement in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures to “Never record ages” (p. 246). But we also take into account Mrs. Eddy’s statement in Retrospection and Introspection: “Genuine Christian Scientists are, or should be, the most systematic and law-abiding people on earth . . .” (p. 87).
On a mobile device, select the PDF option in the Download Options menu on the myBibleLesson site. It should open automatically. If you have a PDF app installed, you may be prompted to open the PDF in that app.
On your computer, downloading the PDF to the desktop (or a folder), rather than opening it in the browser, is generally a good idea. It removes the need to wait for the browser to download each PDF page individually. To download a PDF, click the PDF option in the Download Options menu. If you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed (an optional application that works on both Mac and PC, download it for free), you’ll be asked where you want to save the file. You can save the file anywhere, but your desktop might be most convenient if you want to open it right away. After the file downloads, you can double-click to open it. Once opened, you can print using the application’s print functions. Adobe Acrobat Reader also allows you to highlight passages, make notes, etc.
With your computer and printer, you can print the PDF by selecting “Print” from the File menu. If your mobile device and printer have the proper software for wireless printing, you can print the Lesson from your mobile device.
You cannot change the actual type size within the PDF, but you can zoom in using zoom features provided by your browser or PDF reader application. In a browser, use the “View” menu to locate the zoom features. You also can use the Ctrl+ and Ctrl- key combinations to increase and decrease, respectively, the text size on PC; on a Mac, use Command+ and Command-. On a mobile device zoom is typically done by pinching in or out.
If you’re having problems with Adobe Acrobat or want to know more about its capabilities, please visit Adobe’s help pages.
