Welcome to the new-and-improved KingDavid8.com! I finally have all of the contents from my old site transferred here, so everything should be working properly. Please let me know if you find any "dead links". My pages also have boxes where readers can leave comments and criticisms, so don't be shy.
This website is mostly aimed at providing arguments and evidence for the non-Christian, the Christian who may be struggling with what he or she believes, or those Christians who are interested in reaching out to others.
My opinions may contradict what other Christians believe, but many of my arguments are also based on arguments given by a variety of Christian sources. I especially owe a debt of gratitude to the writings of Glenn Miller, J.P. Holding, Paul Maier, Grant R. Jeffrey, Lee Strobel, and Gerald Schroeder.
Please feel free to borrow ideas or arguments of mine (since many of them were not mine to begin with). I do ask that if you quote from my site directly, to please credit me.
Jesus & Hesus Parallels - A Christian Response
You can probably already guess why skeptics are fond of this Celtic god. Note the similarity of the names. Pretty open-and-shut, huh? Of course, the skeptics conveniently forget that both are the English pronunciations. Comparing the actual original names of these two figures, we have Esus and Yeshua, two names which bear little resemblence. Okay, so let's go onto the comparisons in their stories. Skeptics claim that Hesus was born of a virgin, and that he was crucified with a lamb on one side and an elephant on the other (I guess I better check my bible on where the elephant is in the Jesus story). Actually, neither are true. Hesus was a barbaric warrior god fond of suspending his victims on trees, wounding them, then reading omens in the patterns of their spurting blood. No virgin birth, no crucifixion, no resurrection, no comparisons to Jesus.
