The Gospel of St. Luke

By Rudolf Steiner

GA 114
Translated by D. S. Osmond
with the assistance of Owen Barfield

In these lectures on the Luke Gospel, Steiner provides the solution to the riddle of the irreconcilable contradictions in the accounts of the genealogy and childhood of Jesus in Matthew and Luke when he unveils for the first time the secret of the two Jesus children. He also describes the workings of Zarathustra, the relation between the Buddha and Jesus child, and more.

The translation of these lectures has been made from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer and published as Volume No. 114 (Das Lukas-Evangelium) in the Complete Centenary Edition of the works of Rudolf Steiner in the original German.

This English Edition is published by permission of the Rudolf Steiner-Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
