The Divine Seed interprets the lessons of the Schoolmaster Jesus Christ through the way of the truth-seeker, illuminating his parables, teachings to his disciples, and practical advice on how we should honestly live. In this way, Pekka Ervast helps readers examine Jesus’ life as it contains the deepest, most secret meaning in the Gospels. In decoding the Gospels, he shows us how to free ourselves from intellectual bondage and allow the divine seed contained within the soul to germinate freely and grow.
"Prolific Finnish Theosophist and mythographer Pekka Ervast (1875-1934) unpacks his unique and disciplined take on esoteric Christianity. The title refers to the teachings of Jesus, and what is required to be an authentic follower. This carefully thought out exegesis sheds light on the "second wave" of Theosophical writers after Blavatsky and that period's reading of scripture, emphasizing critical thought, contemplation, and personal relevance." --Jordan Stratford, Gnostic priest and author of Living Gnosticism: An Ancient Way of Knowing
