It is a relatively simple matter to list similarities between individuals, even those that are separated by considerable time and quality. Whilst many might cite Jesus as being the "greater David", few would allege that Jesus IS David. Why? Not because of the similarities between the two, but because of the differences. It is our individuality that marks us as distinct from one another.

So, what are some of the differences between the David and Jesus?
