All three titles are published by Rudolf Steiner Verlag in Dornach, Switzerland.

All Bible quotations in this volume are taken from The New Oxford Annotated Bible, Standard Revised Version.

The publishers acknowledge with gratitude the help of Gilbert Church, Ph.D. who revised an earlier translation of these lectures.
