Third Week of the Year:
“The Gospel of St. John”
Steiner here lays the foundation for a new Christology out of his insights into the Gospel of St. John. He says it is not a book of instruction, but a force that can become active within our souls. As Marie Steiner says in her introduction, “With this book we penetrate into the innermost structure of Rudolf Steiner's activities. For all his endeavors had this one goal — to pave for the world the way to Christ.”
This is a cycle of twelve lectures given at Hamburg, May 18–31, 1908. Translated from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer, from the German edition published with the title, Das Johannes-Evangelium (Vol. 103 in the Bibliographic Survey, 1961). Translated by Maud B. Monges. This volume is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
