Emil Bock presents an unusual perspective on the cultural and political milieu at the time of Christianity's emergence. He examines events such as the Persian Wars with the purpose of understanding the spiritual struggles raging between the forces that wished to promote the newly emerging human consciousness based on independent thinking and the growing sense of egoism, as well as the forces pushing to preserve the authoritarian structures of the past that were rooted in mystery practices that had become decadent.

In particular, the role of Essenes receives attention, although Emil Bock wrote the book prior to the discoveries of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The second half of the book investigates the esoteric biographies of key figures surrounding Jesus Christ, demonstrating how their destinies were affected by their encounters with the being of Christ.
