None of us will ever question Jesus, but this present life of ours gives us the opportunity to find the adepts, the true teachers of the day--THIS day--and question them. Looking for inner awareness, for super-consciousness in books--new or old--is a waste of time. Books can give us inspiration and a second-hand knowledge, and maybe a game-plan for seeking, but not much more. The "living water", the baptism of "fire and water". the true initiation, is only available from a living teacher.
Which is what Jesus was referring to when he said: "While I am *IN* the world, I am the Light of the world."
