In this illuminating lecture, Geoffrey Hodson explains how to go beyond a literal reading of the Christian Bible. Many problems arise from such a literal interpretation, say many contemporary Christian theologians, including stories describing God as a vengeful, and wrathful Deity. Studied as allegories, however, the Bible reveals priceless inner truths beneath the “dead letter” reading of orthodoxy. In this program, Geoffrey Hodson points to profound hidden wisdom within the Bible; offers solutions to difficult passages; provides answers to common criticisms of the Bible; and finally, presents certain Theosophical teachings and their relation to Christian scripture. 1967. 191 minutes.
