Apocalypse SoonFr. Josiah
The Revelation of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian completes the New Testament Canon. It is both an end and a beginning, as it unveils to the Church both the cataclysmic conclusion of this falling age, and the ushering in of the New Heavens and New Earth where righteousness dwells forever. The Revelation, or the Apocalypse, as it is traditionally known, is a unique genre of literature among the 27 books of the New Testament known as "apocalyptic." In 22 sacred chapters St. John reveals the zeal of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ to maintain the purity of His Church, and to lead Her victoriously into His eternal Kingdom. Under numerous symbols and images, as well as dramatic and confrontational historical depictions, the nature of the war in heaven and on earth is revealed between the Church of Jesus Christ and Her enemies: the dragon, the beast, the false prophet, the harlot and those in alliance with evil. The message of the Lord to His much-suffering Church of the 1st century and today is this: Be faithful to the end, for the Lord is coming quickly to reward those who hold fast to His Name. In ten lectures Fr. Josiah exposits the 22 chapters of the Revelation verse by verse in order to give the reader insight into both the original meaning of the text to its 1st century audience and a practical application of its message to the Church today.

The BeatitudesFr. Josiah
The Beatitudes, or the blessings, pronounced by our Lord Jesus Christ upon His faithful followers constitute the opening salvo in our Savior’s most famous teaching: The Sermon on the Mount. In these eight lectures each beatitude, one by one, is unveiled revealing the universal character of an authentic Christian. Those who inculcate these sacred dispositions manifest the face of Jesus Christ to the world. By incarnating the qualities of Jesus Christ our Savior, that is, poverty of spirit, mourning, gentleness, hunger and thirst for righteousness, mercy, purity of heart, peacemaking, and the joyful acceptance of persecution - believers become the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We hope you will be greatly challenged and inspired by these lessons on authentic Christian character, the kind of character that manifests the presence of the Kingdom of God on the earth.

Love: The Most Excellent Way - An Exposition of 1 Corinthians 13By Fr Josiah
In these seven lectures entitled Love: The Most Excellent Way Father Josiah interprets verse by verse St. Paul’s famous love chapter – 1 Corinthians 13. This portion of Holy Scripture has become duly famous as it is the most extensive description of love found in the divine oracles. Through the use of multiple verbs, St. Paul unpacks the contours of divine and human love, and fashions a picture of a way of life he calls the most excellent way. This superlative way is to be the way of life of each and every Christian person. These lectures are intended to inspire just this life of love for God and men.
Joy: An Exposition of Saint Paul's Letter to the PhilippiansFr. Josiah
In this four part lecture series, Father Josiah presents an exposition of St. Paul's Epistle to the Philipians. Of all St. Paul's letters in the New Testament, Philippians is the most personal. The Great Apostle had a very dear relationship with this local church, and the theme of Christian joy radiates in each of the four chapters. This is deeply intriguing since St. Paul wrote this joyful letter of thanksgiving while he was in prison! In this sacred letter is revealed the world-conquering mystery of Christian faith. Here St. Paul unveils the orientation of his entire life when he says, "For me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Each of the chapters contains some of the most sublime teachings of the Gospel, including in chapter 2 the most detailed apostolic teaching on the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ found in the entire New Testament. These lectures are presented with the sincere hope that a more thorough study of this Pauline letter will fill believers with the joy which St. Paul models and of which he speaks. The four lectures are titled:

St. Maximos the Confessor On the Lord's Prayer St. Maximos the Confessor
The vast majority of the 2nd volume of the Philokalia is dedicated to writings of St. Maximos the Confessor. On the Lord's Prayer is a masterful exposition of the content of the most famous Christian prayer. Holy Father's exposits the prayer phrase by phrase, asserting that within the text of the prayer we find the entire aim and purpose of the Incarnation: human deification. The Confessor affirms that hidden in the Lord's Prayer are seven divine mysteries granted to men: theology, adoption as sons by grace, equality with the angels, participation in eternal life, the restoration of human nature when it is reconciled dispassionately with itself, the abolition of the law of sin, and the destruction of the tyranny that holds us in its power through the deceit of the evil one. If we sit as faithful students at the feet of St. Maximos and learn from his wisdom, we will never pray the Lord's Prayer the same again.
