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.

I learned these from my Humanities teacher in college but the only thing that stuck with me three years later is that Peter=Rock aka Rocky. Peter was a big burly guy named Rocky.

Man, could you explain how Jesus also found apostles called Pedro, Juan, Jacobo, Diego/Santiago, Andres, Mateo, Felipe, etc in the Middle East. Like those are Spanish names????

YASS BITCH YASSS

omg yes

Not all heroes wear capes…

Yes, yes, let’s further destroy society by making drugs even easier to access and removing every means of punishing those who bring them in. 

^

it’s weed, you fuck.

coffee’s a drug.

So is alcohol, doesn’t mean it can’t ruin someone’s life.

Doesn’t mean people are responsible with it.

You don’t have to agree with me, but my parents were drug addicts. I can’t stand drugs, period.

My sister’s a fucking methhead.

Weed doesn’t hurt people, unless you count feefees.

Marijuana is the major product brought in by Mexican drug cartels to the US. If it were legalized, taxed and regulated, it would cripple the cartels and they would have to resort to much harder drugs which are much harder to smuggle in.

This is the same situation America faced when prohibition was in effect. Banning it completely only causes more problems than it solves, not to mention the banning of weed is only a means to fuel the American prison industrial complex (privatized prisons need prisoners in order to receive funding).

Its unfortunate your parent’s were drug addicts, and I sympathize with you as many of my own family members have been drug abusers. But the zero tolerance attitude towards weed isn’t the way to go about this. 

Some reading on the health effects of marijuana

This woman in the OP pisses me off, but I support the legalization for the reasons listed above. Prohibition does not work, and our prisons are overflowing with minor drug offenders. With any medicine, harm comes from abusing it. Just like with alcohol.

Smoke marijuana responsibly. Chances are you’re going to fall fast asleep with a belly full of food. The horror!
