NFL Franchise Tag Tracker, Denver Broncos
"Own ego signing the franchise tag is gonna make you more money. In the long run. You will make more money off the franchise tag because you're still going to get the big money deal the next year or the year after. And it's interesting for like Dak Prescott, For example, he ended up getting the five year deal that Dallas ended up wanting simultaneously. He got more money up front. I mean, I think I remember he was six years ago. Control. They got everything they wanted out of exactly right. But on the other side, he had to wait for Patrick Holmes deal to come in. Yes, way for John Watson and better And that's you saying the market on Lee goes up You is an NFL team. You are one of two entities. You are the people that set the market or you are the people that are reacting to it. That's it. There is no in between, and so you can either get out in front of it and pay a guy and it's gonna be a cheap deal in two years. It's gonna be expensive. Looking at the front end. You're gonna get a little laughter when you sign it. And then two years and then your best bet go well, you got a quarterback, that's 80% of the market. Or you're gonna be. You know the team that it's reacting to the market and get going over pay for stuff. That's what happens. You know, the faster you get the deal done, the better off. You are period point blank end of discussion. By the way. Marcus may also got tagged today. So is it. We're tying to justice that was expected, You know, Like I said, I can't go to the particulars. But I had a great conversation there Senior bowl with Eric Burkhardt, who's Marcus Mae's agent? We're talking about the situation and everything, And I think those two safeties are eyeballing each other as far as what the contract Sorry. It's gonna be a question. Which team blinks first, but this was kind of like If we go back several years, everyone Dez Bryant and Marius Thomas. Both got tags. They both ended up getting their contracts done, but they literally got done within the same day. Well, it was pulled. Teams were waiting on the other one, You know, to kind of see the framework and see if they were the same ballpark. This deal done. And finally Jerry was, like, just do it here, you know, And that's and then the Broncos like, okay, we'll offer you that. It is very same thing crazy, so it might come down to the same kind of deal And if the Jets can get Marcus made done, they think Justin's will get done first, and I think it will get done early. Okay, So I think Justin's deal we've got well before the draft. Okay. All right. I like that. They've got to well after that to get it done. So that's just my hunch. Um, based on what I know about both sides of the situation and and again, it kind of comes back to the whole procedural word that was used. That was the word that the Broncos used. That's the word that we've understood this entire time. You've been listening the program, we said From a procedural standpoint, the Broncos will likely use that franchise tag for the second time on Justine Simmons is not the intense and not give him a long term deal. People are misunderstanding this situation, and I even had questions today about okay. Well, if they would've pushed back the franchise tag, maybe the Broncos could've gotten something done. Or maybe the Broncos should have tried to do something like the Cowboys were. This whole deal came together in like 24 hours. The fact is, if you You with the way it's supposed to be viewed, which is what the Broncos are doing. This is a we don't want you going anywhere. We don't want to risk getting to the final 11th hour and all of a sudden there's a paperwork issue, and we can't do a bill. That's exactly right. We do not want to risk that. We're not gonna stub our toe. And so we're going to go ahead and get this thing done now and understand they on the other side. The expectation by all parties involved is to get something long term done. Yeah, um and how it should be used by the way the doctor getting it done in 24 hours. I hate that. I hate that term because it's It's not really They were close last year last they were. They were close last twosome framework there, But I'm saying that like it really escalated over the last 24 hours. To appoint, at least at some of the reporting this out there really escalated over the last 24 hours that they were able to get to the finish line right before the franchise tag deadline, right, so that that's that's the thing Dallas has been called. They were close, actually Latin. Not last year, the year before last, Scuse me. Before the first tag that September. They were close. Stephen Jones, They believed they had it. They believed they had it and they were. There were some issues with length and and how the final two years of the deal were structured and all that kind of stopping. It fell apart last night, but they they thought Dallas thought they had it done. S o. You know, I'll just I'll just leave that at that. And we can we go up but a sparse the Broncos go. I have no doubts that they'll get this deal done. I really don't have 99.999999999% Sure they get this thing done, Okay? And then as far as

The History Of The Cola Wars
"In the late eighteen eighties. Pharmacist named john doc. Pemberton decided to get rich selling homemade cures and elixirs. We should note in spite of his nickname. Doc wasn't a traditional doctor. He hadn't trained in mainstream medical practice instead advocating for alternative treatments and remedies and he wasn't alone in his passions late nineteenth century doctors and patients. We're wild about drugs. And even pharmacists could get rich quick selling inert or sometimes dangerous products as cure all remedies before pemberton's time even something as benign as ketchup was marketed. As a treatment for diarrhea jaundice and rheumatism bayer pharmaceuticals pedaled heroin as a cough suppressant and a safer alternative to morphine and literal snake. Oil salesman claimed that rattlesnakes fluids could cure their gullible customers. It's no wonder that. Pemberton figured he could brew his own dubious remedy in make a fortune. His first hit product was called. French wine coca. It contains several ingredients that would raise eyebrows today but they were considered healthy at the time. Things like wine and coca leaves which contain cocaine. Pemberton claimed that french wine coca was an energy drink and a remedy for morphine addiction and the people loved it. Unsurprisingly the beverage sold well but it wasn't long before pemberton ran into an obstacle just months after french. Wine coca hit. The shelves at the end of eighteen eighty five fulton county georgia outlawed alcohol atlanta based dot. Pemberton had a new problem realizing he probably never strike it big with his mental tonic. Pemberton went back to the drawing board. He wanted to replicate french wine. Coca success but with a non alcoholic beverage. Luckily he had a new product in. Mind it too featured coca leaves but he added the kola nut a west african fruit pit. That's high in caffeine. The mixture of coca and cola gave customers a mild buzz and inspired the drinks name. Coca-cola the beverage sold modestly in its first year unfortunately. Pemberton wasn't particularly skilled with marketing. and distribution. so shortly before his death he sold the business to a fellow druggist with more business. Sense acer candler from their candler built a beverage empire through soda fountains in the nineteenth century. Chola manufacturers generally sold syrup to local businesses. This was more efficient because soda. Bottling technology was fairly new and not widespread yet. They're carbonated water was added to the syrup. So the coke was fresh and fizzy when it was served. Gamblers forward thinking mindset. Didn't stop there. He knew he could reach more customers if he didn't limit his avenues of distribution so in eighteen eighty nine. He sold bottling rights to a plant in chattanooga tennessee. Now customers didn't need to visit the nearest soda fountain for a glass of coca cola. They could buy it the corner shop and drink it at home then. Candler made another even bigger shakeup. He altered the coca cola recipe. We don't know all the changes candler made to the recipe. But we know one of his goals. He didn't want to sell cocaine to his customers and he had two reasons why first candler was very religious second and more importantly he was racist. Most soda fountains were segregated. So only white people could drink coca cola on tap but once he started selling bottled coke. Southern newspapers began printing rumors of quote negro cocaine fiends. In quote white supremacists suggested that the soda drove people of color to commit violent crimes including sexual assault hypocritically. Nobody expressed any concern. That cocaine might drive a white people to commit crimes and to be realistic. There probably wasn't enough cocaine in the beverage to spur consumers to violence although it's hard to say because it doesn't seem like anyone was tracking how much they were using in the recipe. Regardless candler was committed to eliminating the coke from coke.

Guest Teacher Jon Mitchell How to Maximize Productivity With Biohacking
"I brought on john. Because i do feel that. A lot of us as entrepreneurs neglect will we put in our body. Our physical activity or nutrition. All that because of the business. I've been guilty of this several times in the last decade and were all bizarre brought on john to give some laser focus advice on how to bio hacker way to success and be more productive passage john now. But i'll be back to wrap up to episode fill in any gaps but for now taken away john. Everyone this john mitchell. I'm really excited to here. And what i want to do. Today is to teach guys how to go about optimizing your health energy mental performance. And how to do it the right way because there is a lot of noise and confusion online in the health space. And what i wanna do is help you sift through all of that for for those of you guys don't know i'm a functional medicine practitioner. I work virtually with driven professionals. Looking to improve things like energy focus and resolve any chronic health issues that are keeping them from being at their best. Both at work and at home and i've worked for over ten years. I started off on the conventional side of medicine working in the emergency room at urgent care and addiction medicine and then i transitioned over to functional medicine which is more a whole body systems base approach to optimizing your health and i've i've learned firsthand that conventional medicine is great at certain things. It's great i'd taken care of acute issues broken bones infections and surgeries but it's port helping people achieve robust health and maintaining it. Which is what. I'm passionate about and why i do the work i do because people are starting to realize the limitations of the current medical system right and if we're talking about your business or your job the question is why should you prioritize your health versus prioritizing your business well from a business perspective you need to be at the top of your game right. You need to wake up with energy. You need to have the mental clarity to get your work done. And you need to be level headed enough to deal with the constant stressors so as a business owner myself. I understand that Owning a business or even just working in a jock can be very stressful. And you need to have the the mental strength. You need to have the health to be able to handle those things properly and move ford if your health is non point you're not going to be operating anywhere near one hundred percent. You're going to be leaving things on the table. In fact what. I find with many of the professionals that i work with is that they don't even realize how bad they feel and how much they're leaving on the table until we get them feeling better. So what i wanna do is. I'm going to lay out three pillars to optimizing your health. And how to do it the right way. Okay so pillar number one. Let's jump right into it. Recognize you are a category of one so everybody has unique genetics upbringing lifestyle environment habits and nutrition that inform their current level of wellness. So what you need. In nutrition and supplements lifestyle is going to be very different than what somebody else needs. So this is why we can't blindly follow online influencers or healthcare ruse. Because they don't know anything about you right. They can't tell you. Oh you should be on akita genyk diverse vegan diet versus a carnivore diet because nobody knows your blood levels. They don't know your genetics. They don't know you history and all those things are going to influence what diet you should be on current time so i wanna give you guys a good example of this from two different clients. Mine who had similar complaints. So both were both were men in their forties or fifties and we'll say client number one complained of brain fog fatigue and he had type two diabetes and he was on a strict ketogenic. Diet was doing intermittent fasting or not. Johnny on a paleolithic diet into an intermittent fasting was exercising an our day and yet his blood sugars were still running in the two hundred zero higher when they should be under one hundred and the question was what was going on and when we did the right testing found that he was being exposed to some significant environmental. Toxins that were damaging his pancreas. The panthers is what produces insulin to help regulate blood sugar so regardless of what diet he tried regards if it was cute genyk carnivore vegan or anything in between he was not going to get better until we address this toxin issue right. And let's compare this to clyde number two who had similar complaints brain fog. He was overweight. Type two diabetes. He followed a ketogenic diet and fasting and he lost a lot of weight. Blood sugars regulated. And he did great on that so one person did not do well on a very restrictive diet. One person did because it depends on what they specifically need. Okay so always recognize you are category one in all recommendation should be based off of that so that brings us the pillar number to quantify what you need using the right labs right so i see too many people who just take things for things. So i'll see people take things like kuala or some mushroom blend for focus or they'll take zinc and dhea your tributaries for testosterone. But how do you know that you actually need these things. And how'd you know you aren't doing more harm in the long by taking these things. So let's take zinc for instance. Some people probably know that. It's hard to overdo zinc. You can take a lot of and you really won't get into trouble but what the problem is if you're taking zinc It will influence your absorption of copper. So the more zinke take the less you absorb copper so you can create mineral imbalances by taking the wrong supplements if you don't need them and if you're not tracking you can create issues over time. Okay so instead of guessing what diets and supplements are best for you. It's better to know what's best and you do this. By focusing on the right testing so we wanna do is focus on strategies over tactics as specific diet or certain supplement is a tactic akito genyk diet. Carnival diet intermittent fasting. They're all tactics. What we want to focus on strategies instead. Okay so our strategy is going to be influenced by your health history which should be somewhat should help you get a foreigner standing of your health history and put it together combined with some advanced testing so when it comes to determining what types of diets in supplements you should take what i like to use advanced nutritional profile and within that there should be a comprehensive assessment of your vitamins your minerals your amino acids fatty acids heavy metals. Your mitochondria metabolites transmitter. Metabolites and your detoxification

"john w. j" Discussed on From Scratch
"In two thousand thirteen lift is available across the united states and through partnerships with ride sharing companies throughout asia. John is originally from greenwich connecticut and his mom wears a necklace with lift logo. I read that somewhere. Is that really true. I think sometimes i tell her embarrasses me is the she wears it with pink mustache which has changed. I heard she's stores here. She has a pair of earrings to wear good sources. Yeah thank you. So in order to understand the lift story we have to go back to what lift grew out of. Which was zimmer. Zim ride is a car pooling company predominantly on college campuses for long distance driving. Can you tell me a little bit more about that. Sure zimrights was for long distance. Car pooling like an old college bulletin board where people used to post. I'm going from to new york and we brought that online you Have a partner. Logan green. You both came to this idea from two different sources really. Can you describe where logan came to this idea from. Yes sure Logan grew up in la so the center of traffic hit being stuck in traffic and he got really into technology and transportation he went to uc. Santa barbara and he wanted to make an experiment out of himself which was not bringing a charter school and seeing how he could get around and so he rode the bus. He used things like craigslist. to find. carpool rideshare partners. Then while he was in school he took a trip to zimbabwe and he saw people which is true in many developing countries sharing rides out of necessity. And they have lots of different names for in zimbabwe. I believe they call it combat system. And it's interesting. When i was researching zim ride. I was like oh how generous of logan green to allow the company to be named after your last name. But in fact zimrights is named after zim. Bob way correct yeah. He named it before i knew him. How did you in logan meet. We have a mutual friend Also named john. I was on facebook one night and saw that logan had posted on john's facebook page that he was starting a website called zim ride and so i reached out to john. We call jonjo and called juancho. I said how well do you know logan. Do you think you know you could connect us now you at the time also had a transportation innovation in your mind. Where did that come from for you. I took a city planning class. My senior year When i was at cornell hotel school and had this amazing professor and he. His first lecture was the history of the world in thirty minutes called rob young and he he teaches texas but the classes called green cities and he walks through history and by zooming out in only thirty minute lecture. You get to see these really large themes about the importance of geography the importance of resources and the movement of those resources from geography to geography. And then how have organized themselves throughout time and you come to realize that we're really in this age of cities. Now you see how we've built our cities around cars instead of around people and to me. This is really unfortunate Because we have all these roads and parking lots for cars that are used only four percent of the time and they're part ninety six percent of the time. The average cost of owning a vehicle in the united states is nine thousand dollars per vehicle per year. There is no greater expense for the american household except for the house. And we only use this thing for percent of the time that to me is a failing transportation hotel four percent occupancy and really high rent buy started thinking what could we do to make our ownership completely optional. You didn't grow up in a city. I you grew up in a suburb of new york. City greenwich connecticut. What did your parents do. My mom was literally a bean counter. She works for a coffee. Company and Does accounting what coffee committee. It's caller menia coffee coffee importer. And then my father worked for dixie cup. Doing customer service and marketing. Did you have a sense as you were growing up in this household that you wanted to be have an entrepreneurial life at least. In retrospect. In retrospect i think it makes sense. I like fixing things solving things. But most of i like making people happy and so as a kid. My first idea was that i wanted to be a donut maker. My mom would take me to dunkin. Donuts and get a maple frosted donuts many mornings when she'd get her coffee And i saw how happy it made myself and others to get that donut. So i thought i'd be a donut maker. And then i loved magic so i went to magic camp and Those are my early interests before. Realizing i loved Hospitality as a way of delighting people. When you say you wanna make people happy. It's such a nice hallmark card thing to say but it so earnest. My goodness That's really nice. What are some other examples of of. You know the happiness that you created in in people's lives before lift. Would you say well. I think i get a lot of joy from french. Tips from being close to my family My parents always made The family very important. My my dad's father was an orphan. My mom's parents were separate. I think so these. These factors led to them really wanting to create a close family. And then i just get a lot of personal satisfaction around Being around people which i think most humans do incidentally you mentioned your family and you have current family as well. Your wife What is her name christina. You met her in spain. Correct how. I asked her for directions. I was studying abroad and sylvia in Southern spain and komo's savar alamosa the us which the street's name was the love of god. She said. actually.

The mole men arise from the underworld and decide to liberate us from r biden. Est occupational government. Okay look what happened. Yesterday was people over. Used the term surreal but it was to me. It was surreal. I four forty five. Am which kinda like you. I'm not an early riser. But i got up in lynchburg. Virginia so i could catch a flight to catch a flight and arrives in time to watch. You know no matter where. You stand politically. It was bizarre. I mean to see an inauguration with no people. I i guess let me start there because i just like to ask folks like you these questions. Maybe you have better answers. I couldn't really sit. You're out y there were no people. They're in other words. Couldn't you have metal detectors if you were afraid that. Somebody's going to try to kill the president. Why couldn't they have a crowd of covid. So what people wear masks. So you can have a little bit of social distancing. Why were there no crowds for this election. It seems me for this inauguration. It doesn't seem to make any rational sense well. I didn't watch it even on television. I i kind of knew it was happening in the background. It's like knowing the dog pooped in the bedroom. But you don't wanna get out of bed and pick it up just yet just kind of let it steep there. I knew that something was was being deposited in washington dc. But i didn't particularly want to have to smell it. I'm not surprised there were no crowds. I just add at his rallies. I know john john. John look that they didn't release you. Let's focus this isn't inaugural right. People want to be there because it's historic but they didn't finish my point. He didn't want people at his rallies. He doesn't want people at this. I think the fig leaf of democracy of popular government in america is wearing thinner and thinner and thinner in other words..

"I would presume that they're not going to continue a lot of the activities in actions and decisions of mr trump so i would only go into review my classified files for purpose. I was granted some access when i was going to be interviewed by the department of justice. For you know the investigations. That to mr bar turning general hasn't Donald trump's request. But i was granted that access so given that access only after i finished And do you have pet interests. Like imagine if i were you and i had spent thirty years in this job i would have been tracking some things towards the end that my own curiosity would really want access. I would want to be able to check up on some things that i cared deeply about or spent a lot of time trying to help resolve just also your own. Curiosity would want to check in on some things. Wouldn't it well. I am very curious number things that worked to throughout the course of my career. But i don't believe that former officials should be allowed to access classified material in order to advance their own. Maybe personal interests financial interests or whatever there are a number of individuals informed directors who retained clearances because to serve on certain boards of directors or companies that do classified work it requires individuals to have current security clearances tops clearances. I never pursued any of those types of physicians role. So i didn't need the clearances for that purpose. But i can see why former presidents vice presidents would need if i had a real reason and i think the reason was in the national interest to gain access to something for example if i was invited to go overseas and speak to foreign officials on my former counterparts and i needed to have a better sense of what it is that they might be doing or up to then. I would make that request and i believe the cia. Then would grant the access as appropriate. But i think you could think of even the most simple example of someone taking over some managerial job at a business and they figure out how to get the break room cool you want to be able to call the previous guy go like hey what was the trick to get the break room cooled off without making the rest of.

"Could in fact recount a lot of my experiences with accuracy but unfortunately since i have irritated mr trump. Mr trump directed the cia not to share anything. Classified with me. So i had to rely on my memory as well as some conversations. I had with former colleagues but tall former directors who wrote memoirs were given prompt and full access to their classified files when they were director so that they could in fact a write their memoirs with some degree of not just accuracy but also a depth of of coverage. Yeah now what conventionally happens. When people retire doesn't ex-president still have access to like classified information or briefings or are they let go of that. Well they can request a briefing at any time a former president. And they don't get you know the daily presidents daily brief with when they're office but a lot of former presidents and i have briefed for presidents. Who requested a briefing on this matter. Worth going gonna be traveling overseas or or meeting with foreign officials a retain their clearances for the rest of their life a former directors of cia also retain their clearances. It's for the benefit of a government because it allows their successors to contact their predecessors and have conversations about. Would you think about this person. Or why do we do it that way. Or can you give me a little bit of context in terms of this capability or whatever. So it facilitates those discussions. So even though mr trump or the white house announced to great fanfare in the summer of twenty eighteen that he was revoking. Mike clearances. Because i had the audacity to speak out against him by clearances were never revoked because there was no legal basis to do so however he did send a written directive to the cia intelligence community forbidding anyone from discussing classified information with me which is why than the cia was unable to share my classified files. When i was writing my memoir so it's probably safe to assume that you're access to that will resume here shortly. Then yeah. I would think that. biden immigration. Many of the people. I know who i think. Are going to be joining. Mr president-elect biden and i know joe biden very well having worked with him for eight years. I would presume that they're not going to continue a lot of the activities in actions and decisions of mr trump so i would only go into review my classified files for purpose. I was granted some access when i was going to be interviewed by the department of justice. For you know the investigations. That to mr bar turning general hasn't Donald trump's request. But i was granted that access so given that access only after i finished.

"john w. j" Discussed on The Bible Binge
"So it's like just like he couldn't stop powerful was that kind of the coolest thing to do is to be like, don't tell you don't tell anyone. And like you know, there's also this like subversion of expectation like Jesus was you know it talks about the suffering servant like that is not who they thought. The Messiah was going to be he was going to like come out of the you know out of the stump of David a root of just you know all of these things and so it could just be like, Hey, you need to wait until this whole story gets told before you start yapping about what's actually going on. Okay. Let's talk about Mary wife of Columbus. There's just not a lot known about her unfair burden. But she may have been Joseph's sister-in-law. So Jesus aunt cut we know she was just sister-in-law because it says it's Mary sister, right? It's but it but it says Mary sister not it's Joseph's brother's wife. That is who she is traditionally, but I mean like may if the Scripture says it's Mary sister. Right, as it says in the Bible that it's Mary sister, right then that would be bad nature Joseph sister-in-law I get you saying it's also like it could have been his sister-in-law separately from it. Being Mary Sister Right what I'm saying is Shh Mary of Columbus Clovis was potentially Joseph's brother right? We're saying the same thing are we won't because if the bobble says I, think you're saying direct sister and she's saying it could have been less expensive. Than what the Bible says just because of some of the translation stuff. Okay. Yeah. Closest may have been simians father. So Simeon was an early church father the second bishop of Jerusalem which would make Simeon was like a big kind of second generation Christian essentially making semi Jesus cousin they're to me they're too many Mary's like there's too many Mary's confusing in the tax gap using in the original we just don't know but the so the takeaway though is this isn't just like a Mary who's passing through town like a drifter. Mary, this was probably someone who has like tangentially related to. Jesus in some way way. Yeah. So if she's not so even if she's not married sister, which seems weird that we would translate it as she's Mary sister, right? Well, there's this whole which I think is an interesting thing to note because like how are people supposed to expect to like if every translation says it's Mary sister and they were like I was translated right right well, and also like there's this traditional viewpoint that an who is Mary's mother saint an had three daughters from from three different husbands not like in a way in a like they all di Di way not seriously but. Anyway she named them all Mary. So that's also were just like George Foreman Yeah? Yeah. Jerry just like George Foreman. Yeah. She's the Bible that's what it gets. And this also ties into you like what's up would Jesus's family and widened Jesus Family Take Over Guardianship of Mary? I think Jamie I think you're right when you talked about how his brothers didn't believe in him Jesus talked a lot about kingdom bonds over familial bonds.
"john w. j" Discussed on The Bible Binge
"Right? He's not human Jesus anymore but a moment like this is like Oh. Yeah. Like you gotTa make sure you pay your taxes you know to your waitresses, waiters and waitresses he still very much in the moment of I'm still human here and I have a sensibility and I liked that that concept is so just think so lovely because it's also not about necessarily what he's worried about but maybe what she's worried That she's worried about what's about to happen to me was going to. God, but she also is also Human Brian going how am I going to make it in the world? I'm going to be a you know a decrepit widow sure and I love that he is speaking to her worries you in a moment at that he's dying. Yeah and if you want if you choose to interpret this is the larger that exchange as a larger metaphor for him trying to comfort everyone in the. Everyone left behind like you're gonNA be okay maybe you can do that but I just liked that aspect of him not just being like I'm getting crucified this sucks. But also think about other people, right? Good Job Jesus Okay. So that's the scripture for this new epilogue what happens to John does he just take care of Mary does he just have her living in mother-in-law sweet at his house? He does until she dies and then he actually leaves he goes to emphasise He writes three letters. They'd be famously become strong second and third John. He's been exiled because he was preaching the Gospel and he gets exiled to Patmos where he gets a vision that's really weird and it's a book we will never cover on the show maybe. The Bible's I. So he writes. Revelation. He eventually makes it back to emphasise is. A very ordinary. Like average daft much as you could ask for in about ninety eight. So, he lives like a long time. And then tradition holds. He's the only disciple to die of old age rather than to be martyred. Again. He's always telling us he's beloved. Listen in first second and third John He does not use his own name he refers to himself as the elder. Oh yet again, never bring himself and here's my favorite fun fact Turlington. From the late second early third century wrote that before the Romans banished him to Patmos, they brought him into a coliseum. They dumped him in a VAT of boiling oil Kerr and when he emerged unharmed, the entire Coliseum converted to Christianity owes nap. Good John Jock because he just really doing that just isn't really what that's like an NC INC like right after the intermission of the moment that okay let's see. Who or what the L. for you in the story gets disciples this at it's really took the not because of what they do but because we what we think of them because of how they act I, think the disciples bad pr for a very long time because we've always been like those days win God literally chose them because he saw something in them that they're flawed I like that peters like like you said I don't know where to put my hand. And just imagined James and John Going we have to we have to leave we have the league. And then they don't they just and I feel like we. The church teaches. With one breath are like, well, they were the most unassailable. But. Then we're also like I can't believe they've been there. So dumb. Yeah. They're not just every men or women you know like..

"Thank you and now back to the show verse six when you saw his mother in disciple whom he loves sandy nearby also disciple who super fast and runs very fast. Forty Times he said to his mother woman behold your son for seven. They said to disciple behold your mother and from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. So this is This kind of beautiful it's Kinda. Sad. Yeah. But it's also for me the stressful because I'm the kind of guy who I strive for clarity right? I want understanding and that's why I've never wanted to be on a game show because I feel like they explain the rules but they don't explain the nuance of the rules and I'm always worried I'm not gonna you on the price is right or just survivors like this challenge do I carry the bag of corn here in tropic it's just really confusing and just feel like Geez rushed like I. Know He's going through some stuff in the moment he was literally die he's literally dying but also I imagine just generally having some questions of like does she live with me? Do I call her once a week like how does this work I mean culturally okay. So in the Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible that I love it said that Mary was probably a widow at this age because she was in her forty, right? Hello. Wow that's tough with a lot of life. We don't have a lot longer to which is so funny because. We're going to see how long John Lived. So it's nuts but that because Jesus was the oldest child, it would have been his house legal responsibility to care for his because women didn't have any legal seating without a male advocate when it by another male in the family if it wasn't someone. So naming somebody was important like it was something that he should do. Yes. It's weird that it wasn't one of his brothers Yeah. I wouldn't or why was he worried about it if it's like what we know so little about I, mean we know James a pillar of the church, but there's argument that he didn't become back till. After Jesus sure from dad that his his siblings did not believe he was the Messiah. And really chastised his mother for that. You know there's lots of controversy from somebody will say those those guys are not brothers cousins. It's as it gets a little murky maybe Eric speak more into now. So but I just think. It says a lot about the relationship if you go this is the this is the woman who I love when it was important. This whole understand I'm not just our son part of a story. That she's a critical part of I want her to be taken care of I'm going to let this guy he's the guy eight. He's the only guy left standing. Yeah. Yeah. You know I think just like we're talking about Peter having this transcendent religious experience, and then to talk about like a ten placement on the mountain, you know it reaffirms and. His humanity I think similarly like you're saying this moment a so I think it's easy to get swept away with. He's become Lightning Guy God cloud came by he's crucify is GONNA rise? Again. He starts to just become God at that point..

"It feels like a clay. It's a lot of Mary's and you know what's funny. Here's what I love about scholars and Aaron can maybe explain this I looked at Mary wife of Columbus because I was trying to figure out who was yes. Other than just her husband. Yeah and it was so funny how many scholars we're like we're not really sure who? was and I meant it literally says in the Bible Mary, the wife of Clovis. And it's his mother sister. Why is there confusion on whether it? I love scholars who like just don't know if we don't know but wasn't enough that was Mary Sister Cope is really mean though. Jesus sister could be a metaphor Jamie. You don't know that not understand understand that I just I like I like three Mary's I feel like it would be like if we watch scary Mary just so many somebody marries I. Want I WanNa Watch TV show where everybody's named Eric you know all the all the white guys named air. That's why three M named their company three M. O hundred percent hundred percent that's what three hundred kind of products they make here at the Bible. Bench we're grateful for Modern Day Bible translations can you imagine trying to read ancient Hebrew Aramaic or Greek? That would be a show for you but for centuries, scholars have diligently work to make those old words in context understandable to people whose native language is something else. We've mentioned a handful of translations during our episodes, the king, James Version, an IV the. ESPN. And so on. But sometimes, it feels like things just get lost in translation. I'm sure you've had a moment where you've read a particular line of Scripture, lifted your head and said to yourself it happens to all of us if you've ever gotten lost in translation or wondered why one Bible says a text one way and another has something else you need to know about this new Bible the net or Net Bible love the Net Bible it's completely online. I love all the notes that they took it super fascinating for ease of use. You just really can't beat it over twenty five years ago. A group of Seminary Bible Scholars got together to create a free. Bible translation and in the process did something no translator in history has ever done. They documented all of their translation decisions from the original languages in over sixty thousand translator notes the result total transparency into not only their translation but all of your favorite translations to used by me our own resonant.

"Episode of Bible Binge on when your host talks for joining me, he's always dressed in dazzling white clothes. You actually are you actually aren't widely wearing white after Labor Day sucks. Okay. So here's the deal the Bible Binge Show where we take stories from the Bible and we recap them as though they were movie book or a TV show and we say movie booker TV show. That's what we usually do on our other show about pop culture the podcast with Nazi Jamie where we talk about popular culture sacrilege every Wednesday and before we begin we just. WanNa be clear that the Bible Bench has no agenda. The show is meant to be bent Jellicoe Avatar. We just think that the Bible has some pseudo stories and we'll talk more about them in a voice that is more every man or every woman. The conversation that will take place episode is meant to be more casual, not out of disrespect, but in an effort to better understand. The story, this season of the Bible bench is all about that Ragtag Group of during acolytes we lovingly refer to the disciples. This is the season finale of the classic episodes but make sure you just go to wherever you listen to podcasts subscribed trial. You'll know when we start back season eleven plus don't forget to follow along with us on instagram and twitter at the Bible. Binge and finally here at the Bible Bench, we urge you to love others as you love yourself and share the show social media and if you WANNA. Fall along as we go the main Biblical scriptures, the story will cover is Luke Nine, twenty, eight through thirty, six in John Nineteen. Twenty five through twenty seven or Jamie time for us to transfigure out this story. Do you get? The data's been. It's good. That's good. Yes, we are in this final episode you. We didn't get to cover all of the disciples because there's just we can't really truly what do we know about Bart Boring I was going to say there's not enough con- come after me Aaron I don't care he is. But in this episode we're packing everything we could possibly pack in into episode. So we have a lot of players. In this one, obviously we have Jesus. We don't cast him because we're not stupid we have. Peter. You can learn all about Peter in episode. One of the season he is portrayed by WHO Jordan. peele. Jordan peele you still feel good about eleven. So for my favorite plus Jordan Peele guys per tip. He directed won an for writing the film get out, which was actually our secret cinema. For people who are enrolled in. Bible bench seminary. Also in this episode, we have Mary the mother of Jesus now she was first featured in season one episode, six family tree of Jesus, and then she got. Basically got a whole season about herself in season four, which is our advent seasons right? Who did you cast is Mary. That is a play by Villa Davis. Okay. So she was a controversial casting yet. The Tom. Because we were talking about her having a baby in her teenage years like my. Old and it's like she was fifties never been A. You know that she was born forty and a great actress. But really, I, like the long view you had. Yes. Because this is where it really pays hand dividends here..

"Previously, on the Tony Kornheiser show. leadoff double no out first and third one out eric themes. Strikes out I can't. I can't do to robe way strikes out looking all the time. He's got more than one strikeout a game. He said he's EPI said he's a lot more disciplined in the strike zone. This year he's he's not swinging very disciplined. He's not just to strike approach. The Tony Kornheiser show is on now. All right. So you when you do a podcast, you plan for it. The plan originally was not to do one today. The plan was that I would not be in Washington that I would be in Delaware and we weren't even going to have it but those changed and I decided to do a podcast and one of the reasons I did is because this is actually this is inside. Baseball for people this is actually the Last Day of my contract here in other words I start in my mind I start September first and I end August thirty first for purposes of how many shows you do in a year and stuff like that because of the pandemic we haven't been able to do the type of show or the amount of show that I've wanted to do, but this gets us to a very, very nice round number one, hundred and seventy. So I was very pleased to be able to do this show I had a lot of things to talk about including disasterous. Barbecue with chicken. Over the weekend that I wanted to talk about and I certainly wanted to talk about having watched both Putz live yesterday, and we will get to this was Steve Sands both Putz live yesterday a Dustin Johnson on what was the last stroke of the tournament either way make or miss hits a forty three foot putt to force a playoff and then Jon Rahm from essentially the same place except maybe fifteen to twenty feet further by twenty flicks back hits the same pot AFC and wins and wins right in the middle right in the heart and I wanted to talk about all that and I plan to talk about all that and then Nigel about ten minutes ago you texted me what? Some very sad news that's being reported. That former Georgetown head coach John. Thompson has passed away at the age of seventy eight. Now, there's this is being reported by Ninety Sports Radio and it's being reported by WJLA which is channel seven Washington DC and you don't. Ever, get this wrong, right if you get this wrong, you're out of a job. So I'm going to assume even though I don't have anything else to go on I'm going to assume this is true and I'm going to change the beginning of this show and I'm GonNa talk a little bit about John Thompson who I admired greatly. And I liked an awful lot and always in tribute to John Thomson I called him a worthy adversary he was very difficult to cover. Very. Difficult. He was an extraordinarily private man extraordinarily large man and could use his size to be extraordinarily intimidating. He's very, very smart. So covering Georgetown with John Around with the notion of Hoya, paranoia in the late seventies and early eighties stretching through the ninety s made it very difficult for a lot of people to get to the truth you couldn't really talk to anybody on the team unless. John gave you permission. You could talk to John into talk to John, at Georgetown, you had to go upstairs three or four flights of stairs and go through four or five locked doors. It was honestly like the beginning of get smart I mean you just you made an appointment with John John John did everything he could to intimidate you physically and intellectually and John and I got along we. He he was not able to sleep. He I'm not saying he was at INSOMNIAC, but he did not sleep much. So the best interviews and Wilpon will be on later in the show and he'll tell you this John would call you a two or three in the morning. Return your calls calls it two or three in the morning and I made it very clear. If the first time he did that that I wasn't going to do that anymore. I wasn't going to get up a two and three in the morning to take these calls. Others did junior did will bond did you pretty much had to? If you covered the team, you had to do that and John was always engaging look I wrote a big piece about twenty years ago. For an ESPN book on the. Greatest athletes of the twentieth century. One of them and deservedly. So was Bill Russell the greatest winner ever in the NBA. Bill Russell. And the entire story that I wrote about Bourassa talk to Bill Russell, Bill Russell and talk to anybody he and talk. So there's no point in me even talking to Bill Russell I later heard from a family member that they'll Russell said, well, why didn't he ask to talk to me and I started to laugh because Bill Russell never talked to anybody I went to John Thompson you'd say, well, why would you go to John? Thompson, well, John Thompson. Bill Russell's teammate and backup center for the Boston. Celtics for a few years in the sixties John Thompson was himself a great basketball player at Providence College and was in the pros backing up Bill Russell and John Thompson was so smart and could tell me all about Bill Russell. Tell me everything that I didn't know and and the quotes in that piece all John I could never thank John Enough I had. As I said. An odd relationship with John but it was filled with admiration and respect and even some good humor when John, after John, retired and I was at Johns. Retirement is to when he left Georgetown he just left one day and called a bunch of people up and had a press conference and. We laughed about the fact that the bird of prey was sitting in the stands when John, talked. And at some point in our lives at some point in our lives. John and I think it was when Princeton played duke and may have even beaten Duke. At..
