Book Description:
Though Steiner was born with clairvoyant capacities, it was not until his fortieth year that he could link his inner experiences with the principal figure of Western spirituality, Jesus Christ. After that solemn festival of knowledge, as he describes it in his autobiography, Steiner received ceaseless revelations about the significance and detailed course of the Christ s incarnation. In lecture cycles spanning two decades, he spoke of the hidden background to the four gospels, the Book of Revelations, and even a Fifth Gospel of events that he read directly from the spiritual worlds. This series of talks presents the most accessible and illuminating of Steiner s revelations with regard to Christ and his significance for the spiritual development of humanity. He discusses the link between Buddha and the life of Christ, a description that unites Buddhism and Christianity, not in theory but in the spiritual activities of the Buddha and Christ. Here, too, Steiner describes the relationship between the Greek Mystery traditions and the event at Golgotha: A sign was to be placed before them as well, a sign now to be enacted before the eyes of all humankind. The mystical death that had been a ceremonial act in the Mystery Temples for hundreds and thousands of years was now to be presented on the great arena of world history. Everything that had taken place in the secrecy of the Temples of Initiation was brought into the open as a single event on Golgotha. Utilizing a historical overview, revealing the relationship between the great religious traditions, and how they have conspired together for the good of humanity, Steiner never loses sight of the Gospel s great inner meaning, as echoed in the Gospel of St. Luke: The revelation of the spiritual worlds from the heights and its answering reflection from the hearts of human beings brings peace to all whose purpose upon the evolving Earth is to unfold good will.
