The Gospel of Luke. Lecture 5 of 10.
Rudolf Steiner, Basel, September 19, 1909:
The great streams inspired by Buddha and by Zarathustra converge in Jesus of Nazareth. The Nathan Jesus and the Solomon Jesus.
And life's serious conduct;
From my mother a happy nature
And delight in telling fables.
Notes:1. There is a slight ambiguity in the German text and the reader will do well to turn to the passage in the next 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.2. The German words are: und machte sie wieder jungfräulich.
