That made a big difference to him and to us. We still have a special relationship to him in the early years in which we learn those skills. In Steiner work, a lot is about to think, also to speak and walk, as in the arts of "Speech formation" and eurythmy.
******Indeed, Evert, since Anthroposophy is a Path to having direct experience, what Franky is talking about is the best way I know to know Christ from out of Anthroposophy, in a way that goes beyond the mere intellect.
The "special relationship" Franky mentions is detailed in Steiner's book, "The Spiritual Guidance of Man and Mankind." But as with all of Anthroposophy, one must draw on deeper forces than the intellect to really understand it.

Subject: [anthroposophy] What's the significance of Jesus/Christ?
This is an Easter question. Each Easter I try to figure out what all
this fuss about Jesus/Christ is about. I've read what Steiner wrote
about the Gospels, but don't quite get the message. All I have is what I
heard in a Christian church as a child - but what they told me never
made sense to me and I later abandoned it completely. So, I have in my
head a lot of conflicting messages about what the significance of
Jesus/Christ actually was.
Could someone please tell me, IN SIMPLE TERMS, what all this stuff about
Jesus/Christ really means from an Anthroposophical perspective?
