Summary

Part 4 is an easy listening and inspiring biography of the life and teachings of Jesus. This narrative spans his life from his birth in Bethlehem to his death in Jerusalem. The authors describe his childhood, his struggles to overcome teenage problems, his travels and adventures, and his fascinating episodes of personal and public ministry. While The Urantia Book's presentation of Jesus generally corresponds with the Bible, it stands unique, packed with new information and fresh insights.

The Urantia Book fills in the 30 years of Jesus’ life missing from the New Testament. If you’re interested in learning a great deal more about Jesus, you’ll gain deep understanding of his life and teachings from Part 4 of The Urantia Book.

Highlights of Part 4 include: The missing years of Jesus' life; the premature death of Jesus' father; Jesus helping to raise his seven brothers and sisters; Rebecca's proposal of marriage; Jesus' work as a carpenter, boat builder, scribe, teacher, and camel caravan conductor; his journeys to Egypt, Rome, and the Caspian Sea; his life with the apostles; stories of the hundreds of people Jesus helped; healing the sick; the dark days preceding the crucifixion; Jesus' resurrection and appearances; the power of the Spirit of Truth; and the mysterious nature of the human and divine Jesus.

LOW AUDIO VOLUME

Any additional comments?

Don't purchase this audio book! The audio volume (even the enhanced version) is so low, it's not even worth listening to. After the beginning introduction, the volume decreases until you're straining to hear the words and you have to constantly rewind it to catch the dialog. Very distracting while driving! Instead, download the free mp3 version from the Urantia website, where you can adjust the audio volume within any mp3 player.

I have gained new insights by listening

If you could sum up The Urantia Book (Part 4): The Life and Teachings of Jesus in three words, what would they be?

This book has been a long-time companion and has truly changed my life. Listening to this on my iPod while driving long trips has really been a much better experience than I had even hoped for. It's amazing to me that, in hearing the words, I have been able to get a deeper perspective of some of the amazing talks that Jesus gave. It's allowed me to see how the ideas flow into one another with purpose. This, I wasn't able to easily see in reading.

I would recommend that anyone who's read the Urantia Book download a copy of the spoken version and if you happened upon this and have not read the book, don't wait another minute to get the life-changing benefits from this fantastic book.

Not for Earnest Christians

Removes the basic and most fundamental doctrines of Christ and the message delivered to the saints of old. Christ as our sacrifice for sin, our only means of salvation bring grace through faith in the shed blood on the cross for me and you. It appears to be unsanctioned otherworldly knowledge, channeled to a soul to transcribe and print and perhaps mislead the flock. I am grateful that Jesus says my sheep hear my voice and anothers they will not follow. This otherworldly text seeks to supplant and replace the bible and bible message as we know it, while enticing you with tons of unknown and unrevealed unverifiable information to draw you in. Beware and be warned. Jude 1:3 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.

Enlightening revelation of Jesus and his Father.

So incredible that I had to listen to it again. I'm considering listening to it once again. Well worth the time investment. This has transformed the way I look at life and people and my relationship with my creator.

Great book... Bad audio

The book contains amazing philosophical, spiritual, and insightful information, definitely one of my favorite books. However, the audio is not perfect and volume is very low making it hard to listen when there's noise around.

Truth from Source

I have searched for truth all my long life (74 years) and recognize this book as truth. It resonates with my soul as being in alignment with my innate beliefs. Reading the Urantia Book is the final building block to my understanding the puzzle of Creation and Creator. Much study needs to have been done in preparation to understanding this book for most readers. It is not wholly intellectual, yet higher education and knowledge of science and religion increase understanding of this higher spiritual truth. The narrators are in harmony with the message of the text. The message is what the world is seeking: what/who is God, how was creation accomplished and why Jesus?

Amazing biography of Jesus

Thanks for putting The Urantia Book on Audible. The readers do a terrific job so the book is good listening. Since the Urantia Book uses modern English and narrative storytelling, it is much easier to get through than most religious literature. I downloaded the compressed file level 2 so the book did not take up too much room on my IPod.

I loved listening to Part 4 of The Urantia Book. The first hour was tough to understand because it related to Part 2 of the book. But once I got to the chapter on the birth and infancy of Jesus, it was easy listening the rest of the way. Wow, this book takes a really different look at the life of Jesus. Best I have read so far. It recounts his complete life and teachings. Before reading The Urantia Book, I loved the story of Jesus in the New Testament, but felt disappointed that it only covered 20% of his chronological life. I wanted to know his entire life story, complete with all the missing years. Bingo, The Urantia Book tells about his childhood, teenage years, life in his Twenties, and his entire public ministry. They detail the death of his father Joseph, his 19 months of travel in the Mediterranean region with two East Indians, his year journey as a camel caravan conductor going from Nazareth to the Caspian Sea, and his preparation for his public ministry. It must have 50 times the information, stories, sermons, etc. than the New Testament. It actually helped me understand the New Testament better.

For spiritual adventurers, this book is a thrill.
