David Koresh = Vernon Wayne Howell

 

Howell moved quickly to assert his spiritual authority, and one of his first acts was the adoption of a new name, David Koresh. This name suggested that he was a spiritual heir of the biblical King David and that he, like Koresh (Hebrew for Cyrus, the ancient Persian king), was a messianic figure—though not the Messiah, Jesus.  (Cyrus is the only non-Jew to whom the title messiah, or “anointed one,” is given in Scripture.)
