The Gospel of St. John
On the 12th and 13th of February, 1906, Rudolf Steiner gave two lectures in Cologne on “The Gospel of St. John as a Document Describing Initiation”, which are published in Volume 97 of the complete edition of the works of Rudolf Steiner in the original German under the title of “Das Christliche Mysterium”. A few days later in Berlin he also spoke about the John Gospel. It was originally intended to print these lectures in Volume 96 entitled “Ursprungs-impulse der Geisteswissenschaft”. For technical reasons they were held back for Volume 94 which is still in preparation and which will contain the eight lectures on the John Gospel given in Munich. Unfortunately the notes of these Berlin lectures are very scanty. Since they contain essential material concerning Christology, they should undoubtedly have a place in the complete edition. In view of the fact that the publication of Volume 94 will probably not appear in the immediate future, these three lectures are meanwhile printed in this form.
