The Great Gospel of John
John was one of the youngest apostles and Jesus‘ favourite disciple: "... whom Jesus loved..." (John 13:23). While other evangelists were focussing on worldly and spiritual aspects of Jesus‘ acts and teaching, John concentrated fully on the spiritual side of his Lord‘s message. On occasion Jesus calls him a “jewel of love”.
This is probably why the biggest work Jesus gave us through Jakob Lorber - it really
should be called Great Gospel according to Jesus - is called "The great Gospel of John". And it is the last one He dictated to him. Lorber received 10 volumes until his death in 1864 and Leopold Engel the 11th, a few years later.
In these eleven volumes Jesus gives an almost daily account of His three years of teaching. Reading it is sheer delight. Starting out with the first words of John‘s gospel we learn the spiritual meaning of the verses. Explanations of various scripture texts follow. Then, we become witness of Jesus‘ teachings while he travels the Holy Land and talks to thousands of people of all ways of life, whether they are Jews, Romans, Greeks, Pharisees, soldiers, peasants, tax collectors, prostitutes or invalids. The proud and the hurting, the rich and the poor.
It is like an autobiography. Jesus follows the "roadmap" of John‘s gospel while He teaches why He came to visit, what God expects of man, how man can be and will be saved, He explains the scriptures of Moses and the Prophets. But He also teaches about nature, the planets and the universe, microcosm as well as heaven, paradise, the Kingdom of God and the afterlife.
And He constantly stresses the importance of love. He constantly reminds His listeners how they are loved by the "Father". We witness hundreds more miracles Jesus does, than are reported in Scripture: healings, miraculous transformations and creations of food and wine, He awakens people from death like He did with Lazarus. He stops storms in an instant and makes deserted fields bloom and trees grow tall overnight. He tells his baffled listeners their most intimate thoughts and past actions in every detail. He transfers people (and Himself) in split seconds over hundreds of miles for a special purpose. All to make a point: that people believe His words. He very often confirms, He would like to do without miracles, but He‘s got only so much time to make an impact in the hearts and heads of His listeners.
He makes no doubt about His fate. That He will be killed. But even His disciples do not understand when He says He will be "elevated" or "heightened", meaning He will be crucified. The last volume deals mainly with His death and resurrection. The words He speaks on the cross are explained in their true (spiritual) meaning.
The Great Gospel has so far been translated into English in a condensed version. The word for word translation is ongoing and progress depends on available funds. Donations are welcome, as they will accelerate the completion.
