The other Jebus
I read an older thread of Bucky's that mentioned Karen Armstrong's book History of God so I started reading it. In it I found Jebusites and the fact that Jerusalem was once known as Jebus.

According to the Hebrew Bible, the Jebusites (/ˈdʒɛbjəˌsaɪts/; Hebrew: יְבוּסִי, Modern Yevusi, Tiberian Yəḇûsî ISO 259-3 Ybusi) were a Canaanite tribe who built and inhabited Jerusalem prior to its conquest by King David. The Books of Kings state that Jerusalem was known as Jebus prior to this event.

Coincidence? I think not!

RE: The other Jebus
Did you see the Simpsons/Fox is making the official Duff beer to quell knockoffs?
