Rudolf Steiner and the Fifth Gospel: Insights into a New Understanding of the Christ Mystery
Rudolf Steiner received the Fifth Gospel - unrecorded events from the so-called lost years of the life of Jesus, obtained by grace and by spiritual research into the Akashic Record - as a ``sacred obligation`` to which he experienced a deep sense of responsibility. However, he never finished the project of unveiling it. Had he done so, not only Anthroposophy but also Christianity would have received an enormous spiritual gift: a concrete, soul-filled dscription of the Mysteries of Golgotha. His deeply moving and often startling lectures in 1913 are thus fragentary, giving the near-tragic impression that because those who heard or read then did not take them up with sufficient seriousness and inner dedication, humanity has suffered an inestimable loss.
