Julius Koebner 1806-1884
Born in Denmark, and “by profession an optician like Spinoza, God vouchsafed to him greater spiritual sight than to the philosopher”. (A. Bernstein, Jewish Witnesses for Christ.)
Julius joined the Lutheran church at first, but afterwards joined the Baptists, building the Christian Chapel in Copenhagen and elsewhere in Denmark. His latter life was spent in Germany, and he died in Berlin in 1884.
On his hundredth birthday in 1906, one hundred of his choices sermons were published in the German press under the title “Lebens Wasser” (Water of Life).
