In both the Gospels of St. Luke and St. Matthew, we’re presented with the genealogy of Christ, that long list of names, giving the ancestors leading all the way up to St. Joseph and St. Mary the Theotokos. Now, this list of names is not just a historical record, it has spiritual meaning. There is theological and spiritual meaning of course we can’t, we can’t separate theology and spirituality. True theology comes from the revelation of God, it is not just a rational function of the mind. This is false theology. But the genealogy of Christ, the list of names has both a spiritual and theological meaning. It reveals to us something of the identity of Christ, his role, his purpose in coming as a human being. And it speaks to us of our own lives. What our calling truly is.
About the author
Father Spyridon is an Orthodox priest serving in ROCOR in England and a prolific author of many spiritual books. Orthodoxy And The Kingdom of Satan has drawn most attention because of its exploration into the ways in which Satan is working to construct a One World Government through the institutions we see in today’s world. It explains how many trends in modern culture, including Hollywood, ecumensim and the arms trade are being exploited to enslave us. Fr Spyridon spoke out about the sexual deviance in Hollywood long before the Harvey Weinstein case hit the media.
Fr Spyridon’s most recent book, The UFO Deception, explores the UFO phenomenon and identifies how movies, technology and philosophy have been used to guide public perception of what is happening. But as a priest of the Russian Orthodox Church, he demonstrates a much longer history that lies behind it, and how a terrible deception is at work.
