Jesus: The Teachings / A Topical Study by Michael Marlow
An enjoyable way to contemplate the Master's teachings from the Urantia Papers.
"Now concerning the travail of Jerusalem, about which I have spoken to you, even this generation will not pass away until my words are fulfilled. But concerning the times of the coming again of the Son of Man, no one in heaven or on earth may presume to speak. But you should be wise regarding the ripening of an age. You should be alert to discern the signs of the times. You know when the fig tree shows its tender branches and puts forth its leaves that summer is near, likewise, when the world has passed through the long winter of material-mindedness and you discern the coming of the spiritual springtime of a new dispensation, should you know that the summertime of a new visitation draws near."
--Jesus of Nazareth

The Lucifer Rebellion / A Rendering in English Verse by Michael Marlow
--Story presented by a Melchizedek of Nebadon, from the Urantia Papers.
"Much of the difficulty which Earth mortals have in understanding God is due to the far-reaching consequences of the Lucifer rebellion and the Caligastia betrayal. On worlds not segregated by sin, the evolutionary races are able to formulate far better ideas of the Universal Father; they suffer less from confusion, distortion, and perversion of concept."
--a Divine Counselor of Uversa, from the Urantia Papers.
