This is the third book of the Spiritist Codification, published in 1864. Ahead of the biblical scholarship of today, the spiritual benefactors explain in great detail throughout this book the true meaning of many of the most known verses of the Gospel, taking into consideration the lore, traditions, and the atmosphere wherein these events originally occurred. It also clarifies the ethical teachings Jesus intended with his words and actions. The chapters reinforce the connection between Spiritism and the direct teachings of Jesus, but rather outside of the religious dogmatic meaning given to them latter on in human history. The book also explores the much earlier teachings of the Greek philosophers Socrates and Plato and how these men touched upon theories Jesus would clarify centuries latter.

About the Authors

Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail, known to most by his pseudonym Allan Kardec, was born in Lyon, France on October 3, 1804 in a traditional family that was greatly distinguished in the legal profession and court system. However, he did not pursue those careers and from an early age showed an inclination towards the studies of science and philosophy. Educated in the renowned School of Pestalozzi in Yverdun, Switzerland, Allan Kardec became one of the most eminent pupils of that celebrated teacher and one of the most zealous advertisers of the educational system that would later be of great influence in the reform of the educational system in France and Germany.

Allan Kardec is considered the Codifier of the Spiritist Doctrine for his work on the five books of the Codification—"The Spirits’ Book," "The Mediums’ Book," "The Gospel According to Spiritism," "Heaven and Hell," and "Genesis: Miracles and Predictions According to Spiritism."
