So….I totally never thought about this. I’m sure very few of you have. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit disturbed…


Wow. Food for thought. I’m sure there’s an answer though.


Their names were translated/Anglicized after going from Greek to English.
The names of the Apostles are of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew origins. The Hebrew, Aramaic and “Greek” named Apostles were:  Shim’on = Simon (Hebrew origin).  Y’hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).  Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).  Ya’aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).  Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).  Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).  Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).  Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning “Rock”).  Tau’ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).  Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).  Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).  You will note that there are only 11 names, that is because there were 2 Apostles named Ya’aqov (James), which brings the total to 12 apostles.

To expand on this, Jesus’s name is Anglicized in this way as well. We get Jesus from the Latin form of the Greek “Ἰησοῦς”(Iēsous), which is derived from the Herbrew “ישוע”(Yeshu’a, which meant “YHWH is Salvaion”, YHWH, or Yahweh being the name of God). When another form of that name, ” יְהוֹשֻׁעַ”(Yeoshu’a) was allowed to Anglicize through a different set of corruptions, it entered the English Language through Reformist Protestants as the name “Joshua”.Yes. Jesus’s actual name is Joshua.

You gotta be joshing me!

😔😔 Repost from @mediablackoutusa —- Black Teenager’s Mysterious Hanging Death in North Carolina Evokes Painful Imagery. Read Full Story Via (www.MediaBlackoutUSA.com) Was #LennonLacy Lynched? ● On Aug 29, this 17 year-old black teen was found hanging from a swing set in the middle of a predominantly white trailer park in Bladensboro, NC. In the 5 weeks since his death, his family has received few answers from police, not even an autopsy report. Police say there’s ‘no sign of foul play’, but troubling details suggest otherwise: 1) Lennon had bruises and abrasions on his face, shoulders and arms that the coroner likened to victims who’ve been in a bar fight. 2) Lennon was found wearing white shoes his family didn’t recognize in a size 10.5. Lennon wears a size 12 & owned a new pair of Jordans that haven’t been found since his death. 3) Lennon was involved with an older white woman at the time of his death, raising some speculation this crime might be racially motivated 4) Lennon was preparing to play in a big football game the night he died. He showed no signs of being suicidal. 5) Lennon’s grave was desecrated. Someone took all the flowers & dumped them in the road & also dug a hole by his grave. 6) Police haven’t interviewed any possible suspects. The Lacy family deserves answers. Lennon’s death deserves a full, sincere investigation. Spread the word! People need to know about this case!  #BLACKLIVESMATTER #OurLivesMatter #Ferguson #FergusonOctober #MikeBrown #JohnCrawford #jonathanferrell #LennonLacy #ericgarner #kajiemepowell #shawshooting #shaw #bladensboro #lynching #race #racism. #MediaBlackOutUSA #MediaBlackout #Worldwide #news #standforsomething #PayAttention #Repost

thechembow:

It was a light day for aerosol pollution in Los Angeles.  We started the day with blue skies as a lone chemtrail was etched into the sky, starting and stopping as only a chemical, rather than water vapor trail can.  There were beautiful cumulus clouds overhead, but to the south, the cumulus clouds were engulfed in an aerosol haze.  The difference between the natural sky and the aerosol sky is quite apparent.  In the top right photo taken facing south, you can see the polluted sky and in the next row, taken at the same time but overhead in mid city LA, you can see an almost clean sky with gorgeous natural clouds.

In the afternoon, aerosols rolled into LA from the west, killing the natural clouds and replacing them with thin chemclouds and light chemhaze.  The sky turned from blue to greyish, whitish, pale blue.  The chemtrail drawn earlier was a good indicator that chemclouds would blow in, as has been the typical pattern in LA for many months now.  The chembombing in Mexico has slown down and as of the past couple of weeks, most of the aerosols are coming in from over the Pacific Ocean.

The day ended with not so natural clouds imitating marine layer, but seen to the east rather than west, where marine layer typically comes from.  They were mixed with the aerosol haze that had made its way across the city from west to east during the day.
