    But I hear what you're saying on the appropriation of the title for themselves, expecting Christians not to know how it's used in scripture. But then again, Jesus said his kingdom was "not of this world," so there's that too...

    I think people whose goal is to force the hand of God into doing what THEY demand are probably not the kind of people anyone should pay any attention to.

      (Judas') goal was to force Jesus into using his divine powers and establishing the kingdom of heaven here on earth.  In other words, Judas wanted to bring about the End Times by forcing the hand of Jesus.

        Judas the Zealot and Judas Iscariot. . . .

        Judas I. talks like a Zealot various times, and he rejects all mysticism in favor of either revolution or, well, revolution.

        Me, I can't see that a prophecy needs help. If it will happen, then it will happen. It is hubris -- not merely pride but a sacrilege -- to think that we can tell God when to execute a prophecy and what it must look like. It's pride worthy of the morning star.

        Time is not a fiction; it is a narrative.
