Part IV: The Life and Teachings of Jesus
These seventy-seven papers give a year-by-year
account of the life and teachings of the Son of Man,
his childhood, youth, early travels, his personal
and public ministry, the choosing and training of the
twelve apostles, his trial, death, and resurrection.
This biography of Jesus occupies the last part of
The Urantia Book. The first three sections of the Book
constitute an introduction, a universe backdrop, for
the enthralling drama of this human/divine life of
Jesus on our planet. The presentation, therefore, of
the picture of this matchless life in its cosmic frame
is rightly the climax, the fitting conclusion of the
revelation. Jesus' life and precepts, in their original
form, unencumbered by tradition and dogma, are by
far the greatest possible help that mortal man can
have in his agelong climb to Paradise.
"The great hope of Urantia lies in the possibility of
a new revelation of Jesus with a new and enlarged
presentation of his saving message which would
spiritually unite in loving service the numerous
families of his present day professed followers."
[The Urantia Book P. 2086:¶ 2]
"The time is ripe to witness the figurative resurrection
of the human Jesus from his burial tomb amidst the
theological traditions and the religious dogmas of
nineteen centuries.... What a transcendent service if,
through this revelation, the Son of Man should be
recovered from the tomb of traditional theology and
be presented as the living Jesus to the church that
bears his name, and to all other religions!"
[The Urantia Book P. 2090:¶ 3]
