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 & Quirinus Parallels - A Christian Response
Not much is known about Quirinus, a god worshipped by the Sabines, people who lived north-east of Rome. He was believed to wear a beard, and have clothing that was semi-military in style. He had a festival, the Quirinalia, which was celebrated on February 17th. I haven't seen any parallels between him and Jesus. Some critics claim he was born of a virgin, but this claim does not exist in any writings.
