THE LORD'S PRAYER
The Living Word of God
Judith von Halle - Translated by Matthew Barton
18 x 12.5 cm;
'The contents of this volume have arisen from my own spiritual experience, and do not represent any kind of hypothesis or speculation, except where I expressly say that I am unable to make any definitive statement about a particular event or set of circumstances...'
After she received the stigmata in 2004, Judith von Halle began to experience, very vividly, the events that occurred at the time of Christ. These continuing experiences are not visionary or clairvoyant in nature, but an actual participation, involving all human senses, in the events themselves. To complement this method of witnessing Christ's life, von Halle brings to bear a spiritual-scientific mode of observation - a form of research based on a fully conscious crossing of the spiritual threshold by the human 'I' (or self). Combining the results, she describes in this concise study Christ's presentation of the Lord's Prayer - the archetypal prayer of humanity - to those closest to Him, and the context in which He gave it.
Von Halle considers the historical circumstances at the time of Christ, the preparations He made for passing the Prayer on to others, the Prayer's meaning to the disciples, and how the Prayer itself acts as a mediator between worlds. In addition she reflects on the doxology of the Lord's Prayer, and its relation to the Sephiroth Tree.
JUDITH VON HALLE, born in Berlin in 1972, attended school in Germany and the USA and subsequently studied architecture, graduating in 1998. She first encountered anthroposophy in 1997, and began working as a member of staff at Rudolf Steiner House in Berlin, where she also lectured from 2001. In addition she had her own architectural practice. In 2004 she received the stigmata, which transformed her life. Her first book was published in German in 2005, and she now works principally as a lecturer and author. She lives in Berlin with her husband.
