Item description for The Mystery of John the Baptist And John the Evangeli Turning Point of Time: An Esoteric Study by Sergei O. Prokofieff...
"We have shown how in the course of time the being who was present in Elijah appeared again at the most important moments of human evolution on Earth---appeared again so that Christ Jesus Himself could give him the initiation he was to receive for the evolution of humankind. For the being of Elijah reappeared in Lazarus-John---who are in truth one and the same figure." -Rudolf Steiner
Thus spoke Rudolf Steiner in his "Last Address" to members of the Anthroposophical Society. This was his first and only indication of the connection between John the Baptist and John the Evangelist. As Prokofieff points out, Steiner intended to develop and bring to full clarity the short comment reproduced above, but his terminal illness prevented him from doing so.
In this brief, enlightening book, Prokofieff addresses the mystery of the "two Johns." solving many unanswered questions. In particular, he throws light on issues of "incarnation and incorporation," the nature of John the Baptist's and John the Evangelist's respective initiations, the significance of their mutual work at the "Turning Point of Time," and its relevance to our present day.
