The Three Years
The Life of Christ between Baptism and Ascension
by Emil Bock

How can the scientifically oriented man of today approach the healings and miracles of the Gospels, least of all such events as the raising of Lazarus and the Resurrection itself? Emil Bock shows how he can do this without feeling untrue to himself or to the age in which he lives. He does not smooth the path by minimizing the significance of these events, or explaining away the difficulties. Rather he leads more deeply into them through creating an understanding of the implications of such a unique event as the incarnation of a divine cosmic being into the body of Jesus on earth.

In The Three Years, Emil Bock explains the four Gospels both as historical documents and as profound spiritual records of the incarnation of Christ. Each of these aspects, in his vivid presentation, is seen to throw light on the other; he regards the Gospel of John as that which gives the most precise record of the progression of events in the period of Christ's ministry, as well as being that of the deepest esoteric significance.
