LET YOURSELF BE INSTRUCTED
BY JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF
Very few people know that from 1851 to 1864 Jesus
gave a much more complete story of the events that
happened during His last 3 years before His crucifixion.
A much more complete gospel than what we can find in
the Bible. This was revealed by Jesus Christ Himself to
a man He choose, namely the Austrian Jakob Lorber who
dedicated the last 24 years of his life in the service of our
Lord by writing down what He dictated to him through
the inner word. He heard the words very clearly in the
region of his heart and wrote them faithfully down.

1. When the Lord learned that a report had reached the Pharisees

that Jesus was winning and baptizing more disciples than John.

2. Although Jesus Himself did not baptize, but only His disciples.

3. Jesus left Judaea and set out once more for Galilee.

OLLOWING these words of John, his disciples soon joined

Me, and the number of My disciples kept growing from day

to day, often from hour to hour. For everyone who began to

believe in Me and upon whom I, according to the measure of his

faith and following the baptism with water which was performed

by My first disciples, had laid My hands, became filled with

spiritual strength and courage and lost all fear of physical death.

[2] Since many heard of this, they spread the news wherever they

went, although I had forbidden it. Besides, all My deeds also, often

with additions and exaggerations, were made known all over

Judaea and with the Jews, who were always craving for miracles,

this naturally resulted in the fact that every day more and more of

them came to Me and in many cases also stayed with Me.

[3] But, regrettably, this had also the inevitable result that all this

came to the ears of the Pharisees and, as already mentioned, with

additions and exaggerations, some of which sounded so peculiar

that even some Romans began to think that I would have to be

either Zeus himself or at least one of his sons.

[4] The Romans also, sent investigators to Me, but they did not

find what they had been sent for. On those occasions I usually did

not do any signs, so as to prevent these superstitious people from

becoming even more obtuse than they already were.

[5] From these exaggerations there eventually originated quite a

F

92

number of false gospels which distorted the true one.

[6] The Pharisees, these malicious and exceedingly jealous chiefs

of the temple and the Scripture, promptly began to consult

together how to put a stop to our activities. They planned either to

do away with us in a seemingly harmless way or at least provide

for us a lifelong accommodation in an institution – nicely situated

underground – as they later on managed to arrange with Herod for

John (the Baptist).

[7] That I was quite aware of these noble intentions is, of course,

obvious but, in order to avoid scuffles and annoying rows, I had no

option but to leave the ultramontane, dark Judaea and go to the

more liberal Galilee.

4. He had to pass through Samaria.

[8] It was even not advisable to travel the direct road to Galilee,

but rather through Samaria which with the help of the Romans had

already long since freed itself from the Priesthood of the temple

(an easy and desirable task for the Romans whose principle it was

anyway to split up the lands to make it easier to govern them).

[9] Because of this, the Samaritans were in the eyes of the

priesthood in Jerusalem also the most despicable and blasphemous

people on Earth. On the other hand, the priests of Jerusalem had

with the Samaritans such a reputation that they usually described

the worst possible thing with the name of a temple priest. If, for

instance, a Samaritan in a state of unjustified agitation said to

someone, ‘You Pharisee’ the thus abused sued the offender who

often had to pay for his indiscretion with a stiff fine and

imprisonment for years. Of course, it is obvious that a Pharisee or

other priest would have been ill-advised to enter Samaria. This

proved most useful to Me and all those who followed Me, for in

Samaria we were safe from the evil persecution by the temple

servants.

5. He came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, near the little

village that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

[10] The road ran through Sychar, a city near the ancient little

93

village which Jacob gave his son Joseph on his birth, together with

the inhabitants of the little village consisting mainly of shepherds

whom he received with Rachel as her dowry. The city of Sychar

was not exactly a leading city of this land, but many very wealthy

Samaritans were living there, as well as many a rich Roman, as

this city was beautifully situated and the whole region very

healthy.

6. Now Jacob’s well was there. Since Jesus was tired after his

journey. He sat down on the stone curb of the well, and it was

about the sixth hour.

[11] According to the present calculation of time, we set out from

Judaea already at about 4 o’clock in the morning, walked briskly

without a rest and arrived at exactly 12 noon, which was then the

6th

hour, at the ancient Jacob’s well which was situated some 40

paces in front of the little village in the direction of Sychar. This

well had a very good spring, was enclosed by a curb gracefully

chiseled in the old style and surrounded by shady trees.

[12] Since it was midsummer, the day was hot and My body had

become very tired after the strenuous journey. All those who had

followed Me from Judaea and already earlier from Galilee sought

in their exhaustion shelter and a most desirable rest, partly in the

little village, partly under shady trees.

[13] Even the first disciples, that is, Peter, My John the Evangelist,

Andrew, Thomas, Philip and Nathanael, threw themselves down in

the rich grass under the trees. I alone, although very tired too,

seated Myself on the stone curb of the well knowing beforehand

that there soon would be a good opportunity to have a useful

discussion at the well with the stubborn but otherwise more open-

minded Samaritans. At the same time, I was already very thirsty

and waiting for a vessel to draw water, for which a disciple had

gone into the village, but had not returned with it yet.
