Hidden Wisdom in the Christian Scriptures(CD)


*Select an option

In this talk, Geoffrey Hodson suggests that the Bible contains "hidden" wisdom in many of its pages. The term "hidden" in this context refers to the wisdom found in many passages of scripture that are better understood as allegory, parable, and other forms of esoteric symbolism rather than being taken literally. Such literary devices were often used in the ancient world to reveal, as well as disguise, sublime truths of the spiritual life from the profane. The speaker presents a number of biblical passages that, if taken literally, contradict the known laws of physics and science. How are we to interpret such passages today? Do they contain any inner truths? If so, what are the keys needed to discover those truths? 1956. 55 minutes.
