The Mystery of the Two Jesus Children PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Mystery of the Two Jesus Children free pdf The Christian Gospels give two widely differing genealogies for Jesus, which have continued to baffle theologians throughout the centuries. Not only are these genealogies irreconcilable, but the stories of the two accounts of the birth of Jesus, as given by Matthew and Luke, are also radically different. How can this be accounted for? An ancient tradition tells that there were two children named Jesus, a year apart in age, born to parents called Mary and Joseph. These two Jesus children, brought up in close proximity, eventually 'united' in a mysterious way, resulting in a single 'Jesus' who was destined to grow up and fulfil the prophecies of the Old Testament. In grappling with this mystery, Nesfield-Cookson uses all available sources: the biblical accounts, New Testament apocryphal writings, Aramaic and Hebrew documents discovered in the Qumran caves in the twentieth century (the 'Dead Sea Scrolls'), writings by Syrian theologians of the thirteenth century, and in particular the statements by the philosopher and scientist Rudolf Steiner (the first in modern times to assert that two Jesus children existed). The author also refers to the many works of art - largely by Italian artists of the Renaissance period - which appear to depict two Jesus children. Fifteen of these paintings are reproduced as beautiful, full colour plates. The author develops a parallel theme regarding the mystery of Christ and Jesus, that of the gradual descent of Christ - the Spirit of the Sun - from the spiritual world into a physical body.
