Old Testament and Art Course

An invitation to gain an Esoteric Understanding of the Old Testament

As given by Rudolf Steiner and Emil Bock

Lecture and discussion with Cleone Armon,
followed by a painting exercise with Margaret-Mary Farr.

Term1 commences with the age of the First Kings – Saul, David and Solomon.
The twelve tribes are united, and Israel becomes great. 
After Solomon the Kingdom breaks up,
and the two remaining tribes are guided onward by the great Prophets.

Term 2: we see how the descent of Christ is finally prepared.
There are fierce battles in heaven and on earth.
Christ comes into the body of Jesus in the baptism in the Jordan, but takes three years to fully penetrate into it.

Cost: $253 per term.

Online or in person at Manawa Studio, Hastings.
