Brady's Abridged Testimonial Biography
Past nicknames- Chief, the Idea Guy, Scholar, Rex (Latin for King)

Brian- strong in virtue- means hill- high, strong, and noble- eminence, exalted one
Rex- latin for the reigning king that is a mighty counselor/ruler- Rex was inscribed on the placard above Jesus head in Latin, the Roman written language-
John 19:19-20 ESV--
"Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” Many of the Jews read this inscription, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and it was written in Aramaic, in Latin, and in Greek."
The altruistic Love of the Father abounding,
the Prophet/Rabbi/King Anointing of Christ Jesus encountering,
and the Paraclete Holy Spirit sealed & sanctifying (fire forging and immersive washing) in (en) me, upon (epi) me, very close beside (para) me, up anew (ana), beyond & above (hyper) and going out from (ek) me,
and nothing else.
