THE UMBRELLA REVOLUTION
We don’t need any tear gas, we’re crying already.
風雨中抱緊自由。 Brace our freedom among the storm.
It is Day 3 since 28th September 2014, the day Hong Kong Police threw Tear Gas to protestors.
Hong Kong citizens are fighting for democracy to select our own Chief Executive. We don’t want China’s claws on our back and hands on our throat.
Please, Tumblr, reblog and spread the word like wildfire.
SAVE HONG KONG.
DO NOT LET HONG KONG FALL.

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.

Here’s a short guide to using a verb in the gerund (-ing) form or in the infinitive form after another verb. The first verb always determines what form the second verb should be in.
And, sorry English learners - there is no pattern to this! You have to just keep practicing until you memorize it and can feel what’s right.
**Here is the extended note for the verbs stop and remember:
He always remembers to buy me a gift when he goes abroad.
(remember + infinitive = habit)
I remember skiing last December. We had a blast!
(remember + -ing = specific event)
He stopped drinking after he started feeling dizzy.
(stop + -ing = to not do something any more)
It was hot, so he stopped to drink water. (he stopped walking)
(stop + infinitive = to not do something in order to do something else)
