We should SERIOUSLY discuss changing the name of this article. "Jesus Stick" was a nickname for this item. We should consider "Eko's Staff" or "Eko's Stick" and re-direct from "Jeasus Stick." One area we could elaborate on could be the similarities to this item to biblical reference. Similar allegories would include Moses' staff, or a shepperd's hook. I will change this a stub. --Jasoncarubia 19:16, 5 June 2006 (PDT)
Good Idea... this name is only a nickname by Charlie--=Lost=Roland2-
Hey 15:16, 7 June 2006 (PDT)
--Eko's Staff is a wiki link, and redirects to "Jesus Stick." But I agree, this would make more sense since Charlie is the only one who refers to it by this name.
I froze it on Tivo and think it's
"Then said he to me, Son of man, *lift up your eyes now the way toward the north*. So I lifted up my eyes the way toward the north, and see, northward of the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry."
- I don't know if it's been already said on here, but "Lift up your eyes and look north" is also found in Jeremiah 13:20, KJV. The entire verse says, "Lift up your eyes and behold those who come from the north. Where is the flock that was given thee, thy beautiful flock?" Maybe this helps. --Ivan 13:09, 1 February 2007
Found this random tidbit stuck on the "whispers" page. Can anyone confirm the source? Not sure what to make of it. --Hazel 11:31, 29 Oct 06
- "Entertainment Tonight has deciphered markings on Eko's staff. One of these tells a story of him and Charlie gathering wood. Eko becomes angry at Charlie and slams his staff into a "tree". Pain rips through Eko's arms as he realizes that it isn't a tree but a large metal pole. The pole has a sensor, Eko waves his hands in front of the sensor and the whispers begin sugesting something to keep Desmond and people before him in the hatch."
falling from the sky Edit
It didn't really seem to fall from the sky when it came to Locke. It seemed to me like Desmond threw it at him. --Moo 09:26, 9 November 2006 (PST)
Hey, I'm not Christian myself, so if someone who is more of a Bible scholar could comment... see the 3rd pic down, Luke is carved on it. Isn't the Book of Luke one of the books of the Bible? I seem to recall him being a disciple, but I don't know. --PandoraX 15:18, 21 January 2007 (PST)
Luke wrote one of the four gospels in the new testement. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. --Princess Dharma (banned), 11:23, 1 February 2007 (PST)
Yeah, Luke was the third of the four gospels. He was actually a doctor, which is unusual, because Matthew was a tax collector, and I foget what Mark and John were. --User:Bestskier
Lift Up Your Eyes and Look NorthEdit
- They sort of mentioned it in "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead". But it was a strange reference. Something about the angle of light from Eko's grave.--Ex-Pope Cardinal Richard Corey 19:19, 7 March 2007 (PST)
I'm not so sure. Eko clearly put "TITUS:3," so I tend to think it actually says "REVELATIONS:3," even though that is incorrect biblical notation and the book's title is Revelation and not Revelations. I really can't decide for sure what I think it says. Colmillo 15:36, 29 March 2007 (PDT)
I agree that it should actually be "REVELATIONS:3". Although the addition of an "s" at the end of "Revelation" is a slight aberration, it is actually a quite common one. And, as noted above, it is consistent with the "TITUS:3" marking. But mostly, I think it's a better interpretation because the first three verses of Revelation 3 read: "I [God] know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God. Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you." It is much easier to make connections to LOST from this passage than from the 5:3 passage. --Shegavemeapen 18:26, 1 April 2008 (PDT)
the numbers... verses? Edit
I was at www.4815162342.com a long time ago, and one guy in the forums said that the numbers correspond with two verses, like "4" meant the fourth book of the new testament, (gospel of John), and stuff like that. But I forgot what verses they were. But I do remember one thing. Both verses talked about fathers. And think about it. All the characters have unusual relationships with their fathers.
- I assume this means The Numbers should be read as number pairs, which would result in John 1:8 (4th book, 8th verse), 1 Timothy 1:16 (15th book, 16th verse), and 1 John 3:3 (23rd book, 42nd verse). These verses address the final OT-era prophet (John the Baptist) being sent to "prepare the way of the Lord" (John 1:8), the resurrected Christ being honored for extending mercy to the "chief of sinners" (1 Tim. 1:16), and the faithful being told to [morally] purify themselves in anticipation of future glories. It's an interesting summary of the Christian gospel, but it doesn't sound like it fits the show. -- Travis Seitler 04:28, 6 March 2008 (PST)
305 bearing? Edit
Should it be added that the bearing of 305 north was used in The Constant as the way to leave the island? If so, where? Lindsaynickel 04:05, 6 March 2008 (PST)
