The Gospel of St. John and Its Relation to the Other Gospels - Rudolf SteinerThe Gospel of St. John
& Its Relation to the Other Gospels
14 lectures by Rudolf Steiner

The Gospel of St. John and Its Relation to the Other Gospels has to a certain extent been neglected in the English-speaking world. Only one edition has ever been published in the English language, and that was as late as 1948. When that first American edition was exhausted it was never reprinted until 1982, when the cycle is appeared again in a revised translation. Yet it could reasonably be considered as the most comprehensive of all Steiner's cycles on the Gospels, covering as it does a very wide range of topics, and placing the Christ event in the perspective of the whole of earthly evolution in such a way that the cycle can be used even as an introductory work for beginners. It covers many of the subjects discussed in the much more popular 1908 cycle on the Gospel of St. John given at Hamburg, but never in exactly the same manner. Thus there is relatively little duplication between the two cycles, while the later lectures in this beautiful cycle, especially those on what is meant by the overcoming of death by Christ are unique among Steiner's lectures, and ought not to be missed by any student of Anthroposophy.            - Stuart C. Easton (from the Introduction)
