The Being of Christ and the Mystery of Golgotha are the vast subjects that Rudolf Steiner deals with in varied ways in books and lectures from 1900 until his death in 1925. Before proceeding with the central theme of this book, it is important for us to ask what Rudolf Steiner means when he speaks of these profound, far reaching topics. In the brief review which follows we begin to understand Steiner's Christology in an esoteric, historical context, and we become aware of Steiner's evolving development of these themes in his writings. Moreover, there emerges the awareness that, even when Steiner does not mention the Christ, he speaks and works directly out of the Christ Impulse in our time. From this remarkable concept we realize that our understanding of the Christ will gain new depths when we work appropriately within any aspect of the wide diversity which Steiner has brought to mankind.
