I think there's a timeless quality to the "Esoteric Character of the
Gospels" ... You also find it in Franz Hartmann's "The Life of
Jehoshua." The ideas expressed will never be dated.
I also believe a great deal of information has been added regarding
the Nag Hammadi scrolls as well as the scrolls found at Qumran ...all
since about 1945 that have added immense material for study and
assessment that simply wasn't there earlier in the century. I think
there was something about the timing of these discoveries that was
also significant like the tradition in Tibet where hidden scrolls are
revealed at certain times through the artifices of Padmasambhava.
It is also true that if you read Hartmann's account and some other
occultists of the day there is almost an antisemitic quality to
them... apparently disparaging the Jewish character of early
Christianity which was unfortunate since it was the Jewish Christians
like the Nazoreans and Ebionites that more truly preserved the full
character of the Master's message.
In any event I think through recent scholarship much has been added
the past seventy years or so.
