In addition to the reference from Chapter 4 from Gisele, the
following quote is from Chapter 3, page 54:(referring to the Christ)
"He had to appear in a physical body. This was fulfilled in the
historical figure Christ-Jesus, and the historical appearance of
Christ Jesus means that the forces of the six Elohim, or of the
Logos, were incarnated in Jesus of Nazareth."
In chapter, 4 Steiner is quite specifically separates the reflected
Light of Jave from the direct Light of the other six Elohim, saying
that only when mankind was ready could we perceive the Godhead
directly, and then it had to be with our human eyes (eyes that were
prepared, and even created by the physical light.) the word Pleroma,
or fullness specifically indicates the six Elohim. In Chapter 4 Dr.
Steiner also says: "I have said that if we wish really to understand
this Gospel, every word must be weighed in the balance."
This is tough stuff to wrap your mind around! I guess one word at a
time is as good a way as any!
