9780863156199: The Childhood of Jesus: The Unknown Years

The Gospel accounts of the birth and childhood of Jesus have puzzling discrepancies and contradictions that have, in general, been ignored by biblical scholars. In particular, Matthew and Luke give very different versions of Jesus' birth and the events that follow.

A long obscured tradition has held that there were two families and two Jesus children―one from the kingly line of Solomon and the other from the priestly line of Nathan―whose destinies were to join and be fulfilled through the Divine plane. Emil Bock shows how the pattern and structure of the four Gospels support the stories of two boys called Jesus, living side by side in Nazareth until the age of twelve, and right up to the dramatic day of their visit to the temple in Jerusalem.

The author also recreates the years between this time and Jesus' baptism in the river Jordan, demonstrating a strong Essene influence on his spiritual development.

The Childhood of Jesus is a must for every serious student of Steiner’s Christology and anyone who has ever been puzzled by the Gospel accounts of Jesus' birth.

About the Author:

Emil Bock (1895-1959) was born in Wuppertal, Germany, in 1895. He studied German and modern languages at the University of Bonn and, after joining the army, was wounded at the war front in Flanders. In 1916, while still in the army, he met the famous evangelical preacher, Friedrich Rittelmeyer, in Berlin. After his release from the military, he studied Protestant theology in Berlin and later attended priest courses with Rudolf Steiner in Stuttgart and Dornach. With Rittelmeyer, Bock helped establish the Christian Community (the movement for religious renewal) in 1922 and soon became its leader, a position he held until his death. In November, 1922, Bock married Grete Seumer, with whom he had four children. He remained a priest, writer, and lecturer until his death in Stuttgart. Bock's many books include Genesis; Moses; Kings and Prophets; Caesars and Apostles, The Three Years; Saint Paul; and The Childhood of Jesus.

Book Description FLORIS BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The gospel accounts of the birth and childhood of Jesus have puzzling discrepancies and contradictions.

There are various apocryphal texts, as well as works of art, in which both children clearly occur.
