The Soul of Jesus
As part of His preparations for the long-prophesied birth of our Savior, God selected a devout group of primarily Jewish Essenes to oversee this monumental undertaking. The Soul of Jesus delves into numerous details surrounding these readily-available but little-known preparations which preceded the birth of Jesus, and then carries on to share delightful snippets concerning the birth and life of Jesus before the commencing of His Ministry, Jesus’ Healings and other Miracles, His Apostles, relatives, friends and the group of seventy disciples, the Crucifixion and Resurrection, His activities after the Resurrection, and Jesus’ Ascension, that are not recorded in the Scriptures.
The surprises do not stop there. The Soul of Jesus saves the block-buster news until the very end – the soul of Jesus had a number of historical incarnations before its final incarnation, commencing many centuries back in time as the soul of Adam in the Garden of Eden.

Excerpt of The Soul of Jesus
Part 1 Where It Began
Who was Edgar Cayce?
Edgar Cayce is regarded by many authorities in his field as America's legendary mystic. If you happen to be unfamiliar with the name, Edgar Cayce, the most probable reason is that you hail from a younger generation. Edger Cayce passed on in 1945 but he left behind an enormous legacy of unimaginably accurate psychic readings on an unusually diverse assortment of topics. In 1931, Edgar Cayce and a small group of friends and financial supporters incorporated the Association for Research and Enlightenment, Inc. (A.R.E.), in Virginia Beach, Virginia, to preserve, organize and catalogue the rapidly multiplying copies of Edgar Cayce's psychic readings. It is estimated that Edgar Cayce gave more than 15,000 psychic readings in his lifetime, but in the early years the copies of the readings, primarily medical readings, were not retained, and the original record of these readings were given or sent to the individuals requesting the readings.
Today, the A.R.E. is still a thriving, charitable foundation, where members can view copies of over 14,000 complete Edgar Cayce psychic readings. Approximately 10,000 of these readings are medical readings, some 2500 are classified as life or reincarnation readings, and the remainder of the readings cover topics as diverse as domestic relations, the stock market and real estate investment, creation, the life and times of Jesus and those close to Him, as well as numerous other subjects.
You can, if you have not already done so, view Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. website at www.edgarcayce.org. The non-members section contains a short biography of Edgar Cayce and information on other topics presented in Edgar Cayce's recorded readings. Now, if you still have concerns about the unique psychic abilities of Edgar Cayce, I would ask you to take a minute or two and perform an experiment. Please go to your favorite computer search engine and do a search on “Edgar Cayce”, and you will be amazed by the information that you will uncover. I recently performed another search as I was writing this paragraph and came up with 2,750,000 hits. Not too shabby for someone you might not have ever heard of before you started reading this chapter.
What about books, you may be thinking at this juncture? Over 300 books have been written by Edgar Cayce or by others who have used Edgar’s readings as the basis for their writing. To date, well over 30 biographies of Edgar Cayce are included in that number. Pause for a moment and try to count the people who have had over 30 biographies written about them. Did you run out of fingers and have to take your socks off? I doubt it!
If I rounded them all up, I probably have between forty and fifty of the over 300 books about Edgar Cayce that I just mentioned. Wonderful reading! I will take a minute or two and mention a few of my favorites.
There Is a River, by Thomas Sugrue, is the original Edgar Cayce biography, first published in 1943. It has now sold over a million copies.
The Lost Memoirs of Edgar Cayce, by A. Robert Smith, was pretty much written by Edgar himself, but Edgar’s soul was called home before the manuscript was completed and Robert Smith was asked to finish the manuscript. Robert had previously published a biography of Edgar’s eldest son, Hugh Lynn Cayce, titled Hugh Lynn Cayce: About My Father’s Business, and was Hugh Lynn’s obvious choice to complete his father’s memoirs.
Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation, by Noel Langley. I have established a second career writing reincarnation articles, and more recently novels, using the Edgar Cayce readings or my knowledge absorbed through studying Edgar’s 2500 life or reincarnation readings.
Edgar Cayce on Atlantis, by Edgar Evans Cayce, Edgar’s son. Interesting revelations! Atlantis is not a myth.
The Outer Limits of Edgar Cayce’s Power, written by Edgar Evans Cayce and Hugh Lynn Cayce, Edgar’s sons.
