In case you missed all the subtle clues, the implication here is that Hercules and Xena assisted in Jesus’ birth. The thing is, not only are these Christmas episodes rewriting the Bible so that the King of the Jews was born in the middle of Greece, but based on the Hercules-verse timeline, they’re also moving up his birthday by at least 500 years. In fact, one episode features David, of David and Goliath fame, who died in 970 B.C. and is supposed to be a distant ancestor of Jesus.
Oh, and then there’s the small fact that these shows feature a ton of other gods — although Xena does kill a whole bunch of them, so maybe Jesus’ dad is still technically the One True One by the time she’s done.
In short: Kevin Sorbo once starred in a show that was way more blasphemous than any satanic film or, heck, even Ice Age. May Sid have mercy on his soul.
