The Gospel of Luke. Lecture 6 of 10.
Rudolf Steiner, Basel, September 20, 1909:
The mission of the Hebrews. Buddha's teaching concerning the ennoblement of man's inner nature and Zarathustra's teaching concerning the cosmos. Elijah and John the Baptist.
Notes:1. There is a slight ambiguity in the German text and the reader will do well to turn to the passage in the this lecture (p. 119) where Dr. Steiner speaks again of the mysterious process connected with the birth of John the Baptist and of the influence of the Nirmanakaya of Buddha hovering above the Nathan Jesus.
