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 & Artemes Parallels - A Christian Response
Artemes (aka Artemis) was the twin sister of Apollo. She was the goddess of wilderness, the hunt, wild animals and fertility. She carried a bow and arrow, and hunted (then later protected) wild game. She was a lifelong virgin, and frequently killed men who tried to have sex with her (as well as people who tried to kill animals she protected). She wasn't born of a virgin (her mother, Leto, was either Zeus' wife or concubine, depending on the story), apostles, or death/resurrection, or anything which compares to Jesus.
