The fourth gospel, that of Saint John, has always been thought of as that of the initiates to Christian Gnosis. John was the only apostle to know Jesus and be taken into his confidence. A reading of the work by Paul Le Cour helps the reader rediscover the hidden meaning of the Scriptures John’s Gospel starts with the baptism in the Jordan and then presents the first thirty years of the life of Jesus. It presents a Christ figure with whom the human soul can find communion through inner life. This work is therefore a point of reference for a greater understanding of our relationship with religion, a means of rediscovering the links binding us to the cosmos and providing existence with meaning.
