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.

HEN the innkeeper went with his wife and with the servants

to the kitchen again, and soon after that, the ordered fishes

that were very well prepared and a big scale full of well-

cooked lentils were put on our table, and we began to eat. And the

innkeeper himself had to join us, became very cheerful by that and

told us a lot about all the wonderful things that happened in

Samaria a few years ago.

[2] Among other things he (the innkeeper) said: “I am really

surprised that you as Judeans, Galileans and Greeks seem to know

almost nothing about the famous Galilean who about 2 ½ years

ago came here with a few disciples and related in wonderful

wordings about the coming of the Kingdom of God, and who

performed miracles in and near the city which are only possible to

God. And recently some Judeans came here who said that they

were sent out by Him to proclaim the gospel to all nations. And

we also believed them because they confirmed their statement

also by very remarkable miracles, since by the laying on of their

hands in the name of the One who sent them they suddenly

healed a lot of sick people. Besides, their teaching was exactly

the same as the one that He Himself was teaching here during the

time that I mentioned, and that is why we believed those disciples

all the more.

[3] Please tell me, now that we are so joyfully together, what you

know about that great Man who is according to me truly more

memorable above no matter what, and who is also exalted far

above all men, because to us Samaritans, He is irrevocably the

promised Messiah, the Savior and Redeemer of men from the

power of every enemy of the truth, the love, the life and its

freedom. Oh please tell me if and what you know about Him, and

also what you think about Him.”

[4] I said: “Friend, we know a lot about Him and have a lot to do

with Him, but if He Himself has been here 2 ½ years ago, as you

say, teaching and performing miracles, you one time must have

seen Him personally? Or did you not have the opportunity to see

Him personally when He was present in this city?”

[5] The innkeeper said: “Friends, this is now for me so

regrettable. Exactly at that time I was absent because I had to

finish a business matter in Tyre, and my personnel came only to

know about Him when He was already over mountains and

valleys1

. When I came home a couple of days later I heard in the

whole city and environment talking about nothing else except

about that Man, His teaching and His deeds which are so

unbelievably great and wonderful that a stranger can really not

believe it when he is told, even though they truly came to happen

only by the word and the will of that Man.

[6] There is a wealthy doctor living here with a woman, who, as

everyone knows, did formerly, as far as her chastity is concerned,

not have such a good name. The mentioned doctor must have

known that Man very well and has also received the wonderful

power to heal all kinds of diseases only by the laying on of his

hands. From that doctor I then also came to know most about that

Man of men. He also described His outer appearance to me, but

even with the best of descriptions, reality always remains in the

dark. You can form some image in your imagination, which finally

however will still not correspond to reality. And so, for very

understandable reasons I cannot have an exact idea of the

appearance of that great God-Man.

[7] In the land of Samaria there is also a certain John1

walking

around, who formerly was a beggar, but who now also proclaims

to other people the teaching that he heard from that great Man.

He lives a strict life himself, and through prayer and the laying on

of his hands in the name of that great Man he also heals many

diseases, and those who are possessed he also frees from their

tormenting spirits. Well, the man that I mentioned came also a

few times to me and told me many things, and that is why I

have always served him in the best way according to my ability,

but still, I cannot completely imagine how this great God-Man

looks like.

[8] One year ago, when I heard from many travelers many great

things about His activities, I traveled a whole month to find Him

and came into the place where He taught and worked shortly

before that. But when I arrived in the place and zealously inquired

about Him, it was always: ‘Yes, 2 or 3 days ago He was here and

He has said this and that and has done this and that,’ and I have

also seen enough proofs to know it was really so.

[9] In short, I have found an abundance of valid proofs that He was

there and was active, only Himself I have never come to see yet.

But from a rich Jew from Bethlehem, who also had much to do

with that great God-Man and who believes in Him, I heard that

He comes to all great feast days in Jerusalem, actually in the

temple, and teaches the people, although the dark and evil

Pharisees are in the highest degree rebellious against Him. And

John, who suffered from gout – see volume 1, chapter 73.

55

that is why I, although I am a Samaritan who is despised by the

arch Jews, still want to travel to Jerusalem during the next temple

sanctification and see if I can maybe once come to see that great

God-Man.

[10] But for the mean time, a traveler can already make me more

than happy if only he can tell me a lot of things about Him. If he

can do that and if he also in his faith will conform himself to that

great Man who became really holy to me, then he can spend his

time with me in the house as long as he wants, can or likes, and his

accommodation and even the best food will cost him nothing.

Truly, if you can also tell me many things about that great Man

– but completely according to the truth – then with me you also

will pay the bill most lightly. Thus, my dear men, tell me also

something about Him.”

[11] I said: “Yes, My dear friend. I can tell you a lot of things

about your great God-Man, in whom the fullness of the divine

Being is incarnated. And I can finally even show you His most true

image if only you could keep your mouth under control for a few

days. But in this point you do not seem to be a champion.”

[12] The innkeeper said: “Yes, when it concerns my holy God-

Man You could be right, because that which gives someone such

great joy and fully stirs up the heart, he hardly can keep quiet.

However, if it is necessary, then I also can keep silent. You all can

be completely sure about that.”
