Its the fourth volume in a set of
four from Anne Catherine Emmerich's visions of the life of Jesus from
birth to the Resurrection. This 18th-19th century Catholic nun was a
stigmata figure and visionary. The entire works (with the fifth volume
exclusively on the life of Mary) runs nearly 2000 pages! and the details are
without paralllel in religous literature.
I have personally been able to check her historical
accuracy on a few points recently and its clear that she was "given" access
to the spiritual records from the earth's history of the life of
Christ in detai: Its probably the etheric records since the Akashic
records apparently do not have this type of detail. There are some "problems" in
reading and recalling some of the content she witnessed and clearly admits
this and her bias ; but the last volume is very powerful and upsetting if
one feels the content is even fairly accurate of the last four days of
Yet, if one is to really read a "fifth gospel" and see the
possible daily life activities, work and pain of Christ Jesus, this is it. I
recommend all four but most cannot go through it all. The first three are highly
detailed accounts of day by day activities interspersed with "biblical type"
reference events like healings, miracles and teaching. The first temptation in
the desert is very interesting. I think what is so fascinating is that for a
change no punches are pulled - the heat, the dust, the nature of the
times, way of life, the encounters with evil, etc. are dealt with in clearl,
Its up to each to decide what is "true",l embellishments
or symbolic references.
Hope you benefit from it.

Although I have heard of many works and
insights on jesus, I never

Emmerich's 4 volume set on the
Life of Jesus Christ as revealed to her in
throughout her life) before. What is the name of
this 4 volume set?.
