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.
Why Would The Jewish Apostles Have Written In Greek?
In the first century A.D., Greek was the primary language of the Roman Empire. If the apostles wanted their stories to reach out to as many people as possible, they would have written it in a language that was understood by as many people as possible. Had they written them in their native tongue, Aramaic, they would have been unreadable to the vast majority of their audience. Other Jewish writers of the 1st century, such as the historian Josephus, also wrote in Greek. Even if the authors were personally unable to write in Greek, they could easily have dictated the stories to someone more fluent, who did the physical writing.
