Judas Iscariot Judas Iscariot (Hebrew: יהודה, Yəhûḏāh) was, according to the New Testament, one of the twelve original apostles of Jesus Christ, and the son of Simon Iscariot. He is infamously known for his kiss and betrayal of Jesus to the hands of the chief Sanhedrin priests in exchange for a payment of thirty silver coins. His name is often invoked to accuse someone of betrayal, and is sometimes confused with Jude Thaddeus. Though there are varied accounts of his death, the traditional version sees him as having hanged himself out of remorse following his betrayal. His place among the Twelve Apostles was later filled by Matthias. He was the first apostle to die, and the only apostle not to achieve sainthood in the Roman Catholic Church. Etymology One popular explanation derives Iscariot from Hebrew איש־קריות, Îš-Qrîyôth, or "man of Kerioth". Role as an apostle Judas is mentioned in the synoptic gospels, the Gospel of John and at the beginning of Acts of the Apostles. Theology
youtube links ultimate fighting jesus | Eugene Cho I get it. Men and women are different. In fact, I embrace it. And I also get it that there’s an issue with men in the church. Statistically, only 40% of folks in the church are men and there is also the issue of fewer men actively serving and leading within the church. Emasculation as one of the greatest threats? Christianity Today has a worthwhile read entitled, A Jesus for Real Men [What the new masculinity movement gets right and wrong]. Mark Driscoll, pastor of Seattle’s Mars Hill Church, desires greater testosterone in contemporary Christianity. The aspect of church that men find least appealing is its conception of Jesus. There is an issue but aren’t we overreacting and going to the other extreme – and consequently, further away from Jesus. So, what does it mean to be a Christian man? Seriously, I personally don’t care what you eat, drink, hunt, or watch as long as it isn’t porn. Brandon O’ Brien, the author of the article, writes: I live for this Jesus! What do you think?

my quasi-conversation with rob bell…about women | Eugene Cho Well, I finally met Rob Bell last night and had an intense conversation with him. Kind of. Like indirectly. He was in Seattle for the Seeds of Compassion event with the Dalai Lama. I have no problem with that at all. Rob Bell spoke initially and eloquently for about 15-20 minutes on the thrust behind his upcoming book entitled, Jesus Wants to Save Christians. There is a church not too far from us that recently added a $25 million addition to their building. This is a book about those two numbers. It’s about empty empires and the truth that everybody’s a priest, it’s about oppression, occupation, and what happens when Christians support, animate and participate in the very things Jesus came to set people free from. It’s about what it means to be a part of the church of Jesus in a world where some people fly planes into buildings while others pick up groceries in Hummers. Ok, that’s when things got a little awkward and we had our indirect conversation. And how did she begin her interview?

A Jesus for Real Men "The stallions hang out in bars; the geldings hang out in church." This observation from David Murrow strikes a little close to home for someone like me. I always thrived in my congregation but was never certain I fit the mold of masculinity I saw modeled around me. So as much as I resent Murrow's sentiment, it nevertheless rings true: In many churches, a certain type of man is conspicuously absent. The disparity in men's and women's attendance in American churches has made men the target of specialized ministry over the last two decades. The first writer to popularize this concern was John Eldredge, who, in his three-million-selling Wild at Heart (Thomas Nelson, 2001), lamented that the masculine spirit was at risk because "most men believe God put them on the earth to be good boys."

Jonathan Ive: For Apple, it's quality, not quantity | Apple Why is Apple successful? It all starts with the quality of its products, according to Jonathan Ive. The company's senior vice president of industrial design waxed eloquent on this theme during a talk about Apple's design focus at the British Embassy's Creative Summit. "I refute that design is important. Ive insisted that when Steve Jobs came back to the company in 1997, Jobs' goal was to focus on superior products rather than financial performance. "We are really pleased with our revenues but our goal isn't to make money," he said. Alongside Jobs, Ive has been named one of the smartest men in tech by Fortune magazine and is known for making sweeping statements about Apple's products. In today's talk, he echoed this sentiment.

Statistics about gender inequality via UN and UNICEF are even more discouraging.

Apple's Jonathan Ive: How did a British polytechnic graduate become its design genius? By Rob Waugh Updated: 01:56 GMT, 20 March 2011 Rob Waugh reports on the rise to near-mythical status of Jonathan Ive, the remarkable man from Chingford Jonathan Ive (left) has helped turn Apple into the second biggest company in the world, with a higher turnover than Google or Microsoft Few Westerners have ever seen the forging of a Japanese samurai sword. The steel is folded and refolded thousands of times to create a hard outer layer and a softer inner core resulting in a singular blade: terrifyingly sharp but far less prone to breaking than any sword forged in the West. Once the blade is complete it is polished to a mirror finish, an elaborate procedure that itself can take weeks. Ive endlessly seeks crucial knowledge that can help him to make the thinnest computing devices in the world, so it surprised no one at Apple that their obsessive design genius would take a 14-hour flight for a meeting with one of Japan’s leading makers of katana.
