Arcana Coelestia Or Heavenly Mysteries Contained in the Sacred Scriptures Or Word of the Lord Part One
1837. Part One of Twelve. Swedenborg, a noted Swedish scientist, philosopher and theologian, best known for his later writings, in which he presents ideas both Christian and ecumenical, for a new spiritual era or new church to be known as the New Jerusalem. The Arcana Coelestia is Swedenborg's crowning achievement. In Arcana Coelestia Swedenborg first introduces the concept of correspondences, a living, spiritual meaning within Scripture. He then proceeds to offer a verse by verse spiritual interpretation of the books of Genesis and Exodus. Along the way, he explains the spiritual meaning of many parallel passages throughout the rest of the Bible. Recommended reading for any serious student of the Bible.
