I was going through my closet doing some spring cleaning when I came across a newspaper article I had saved about a six-toed Jesus. Written in 2003, the Dallas article featured a story about stained glass windows that was raising questions about a six-toed Jesus.

As most of you know, I have an avid interest in the Nephilim and wrote a book about it co-authored with Dr. Michael McDaniel called “Alien Agenda: the Return of the Nephilim”. The six toes particularly caught my interest because it is a characteristic that is described in the bible of the Nephilim.  All of Genesis chapter 6, along with other passages in the Bible—and other books like Enoch and Jasher—refer to these Nephilim Hybrids. Goliath, the Giant, is one example of this. He had a unique character trait of 6 fingers and 6 toes.

2 Samuel 21:20

And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant.

There are three stained glass windows in north Texas that depict a six-toed Jesus.  Herbert Davis, an English artist who moved to North Texas around 1918, had hexadactyly, a birth defect that gave him six toes on one of his feet. Polydactyly is associated with different mutations or in the gene itself. There is one tribe where a lot of people have six digits: the Waorani tribe in Ecuador, a normal-sized people that has some among them that exhibit these characteristics, such as six fingers, six toes, and double dentition (not all of them). Wherever Davis worked, figures with six toes have been discovered in the stained glass windows he created. For anyone who is familiar with the Nephilim, depicting Jesus with six toes can be interpreted as having a fallen angel ancestry; skewing biblical history of an imperfect Savior.

However, we are not sure why Davis depicted Jesus with six toes. Was it because he was hexadactyl and used it as his artist signature or was it because he was trying to make an unknown statement? The windows are unsigned so we cannot say who made them for sure. There is no direct link with Davis but is is generally known in history that Davis traveled from church to church offering to cut, paint, and glass biblical scenes in stained glass. Mr. Davis was said to have worked at Hunt Stained Glass Studios in Pittsburg which had been in business since 1890 then at Kansas City Glass before moving to Arlington at the turn of the century.

Mr. Davis is believed to have created his first image of a six-toed Jesus at First Christian Church in Allan. In subsequent works, similar stained-glass windows have appeared in Waco, Parker and Carrollton, Texas. Some have interpreted the six-toed Jesus stained-glass art to mean that Jesus shares our humanity. Robert Jones, a historian for the Stained Glass Association doubts any of it. He is inclined to think Davis had a twisted sense of humor.

“ I can’t imagine anybody in a studio would be working in anything less than a respectful mode,” said Mr. Jones according to the Dallas newspaper article. “People always go for little details nobody’s going to see, so if there’s six toes being added, he was just being silly.”

I’m not saying that anyone today who may have polydactlyism has Nephilim DNA. I don’t believe that. But it is interesting that not only Jesus has been depicted with six toes but others as well. Brookfield Unitarian Church near Manchester, England which was built in 1871, has a stained-glass of Moses with six-toes holding the Ten Commandments over the Communion table. Church leaders their do not know who created it or when it was installed. First Presbyterian Church in Humbolt, Kansas built in 1917 has a six-toed Jesus depicted in a Resurrection scene. In Maine, St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Damariscotta Mills has a six-toed Jesus in the chapel. Its origins are unkown.

I have no doubt that the person or persons who designed these stained glass windows depicting Jesus with six toes were sincere in their faith. Therefore, I wonder why they portrayed Jesus with an extra toe on one foot? Perhaps it’s a subtle message that is now lost.

 Known Six-Toed Stained Glass Windows:

  1. First Christian Church; Allen, TX- 1918
  2. First Baptist Church Hebron; Carrollton, TX-1920
  3. Corinth Presbyterian Church; Parker- 1921

Other known locations:

  • Brookfield Unitarian Church; West Gorton, England- 1871 ( Six-toed Moses)
  • Central Christian Church; Waco, TX- early 1900’s
  • First Presbyterian Church; Humbolt, Kansas-1917
  • St. Patrick’s Church, Damariscotta Mills, Maine.

    VERY INTERESTING! IT COULD REFER TO JESUS SHARING OUR HUMANITY BUT ALSO TO HIS UNIQUENESS IN HIS CONCEPTION BY THE HOLY SPIRIT AS OPPOSED TO HUMAN CONCEPTION, AGAIN CAUSING THE VIEWER OF THESE ARTFUL DEPICTIONS TO PAUSE AND RELFECT AND EVEN GO FURTHER IN STUDY OF SCRIPTURE. AMEN! I LOVE THAT YOU REFER TO THE BOOKS OF ENOCH AND JASHER. BECAUSE OF THE MOVIE NOAH, WHICH MY GRANDSON’S SCHOOL BANNED FROM BEING ACCEPTABLE, WITH THE GLADIATOR STAR, REFERRED TO THE BOOK OF JUBLILEES, I READ IT AND GAINED GREAT INSIGHT INTO DATA LESS KNOWN BUT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. I BELIEVE THE BOOKS THAT HAVE BEEN OMMITTED FROM OUR BIBLES SHOULD BE “IN” THE BIBLE AND ARE JUST AS INSPIRED AS THE REST THAT KING JAMES DID ALLOW. TOM AND NADINE GREGG NRH, TX

    • I agree with you on the so called “Lost Books” of the Bible. They have NOT been lost at all, just not in the “King James” version which led to other printers to not include the same in their printings. And, just “why” have they DELIBERATELY BEEN LEFT OUT, which “I” believe makes the “King James”, and all the ones printed after bogus copies of a fraud. I myself believe these should be read by everyone.

      • Doesn’t the Scriptures state, flat out that is ANYONE, King, or whomever, CHANGES one word of our Creator’s Scriptures, then, they are no longer true God-given “Scripture”???

      • I am just asking. Is there a single chapter in the entire version of the King James Bible that has not been included, OR, ADDED??? Sure there is! Find it for yourself or you will never understand the research it takes to find this information. For real. I had an old time preacher man “dancing” with a King James Bible like he was drunk, yelling and singing the “King James Bible is the only Bible for me”… strange to me. We left that congregation then! Yes, there is an informative Chapter of things which we need to locate for ourselves.

        YES LIFE IS A JOURNEY OF SEEKING AND FINDING AND SOMETIMES VERY DIFFICULT BUT JESUS SAID HE WON’T LEAVE US AND WE WILL FIND THE ANSWERS AND OBEYING GOD TO ME IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT I DO. I WENT THRU SOME VERY DISAPPOINTING TIMES AND SOUGHT GOD LIKE NEVER BEFORE AND IT WAS WORTH IT. HE MET AROUND EVERY TURN AND HELPED ME TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS AND NOW I AM MUCH BETTER OFF THAN I WA BEFORE. NADINE GREGG

      • TOM AND NADINE GREGG says:

        WHEN I WAS VERY DISTURBED MANY YEARS AGO ABOUT “MINISTERS” WHO MIGHT BE WRONG OR IN ERROR, THE HOLY SPIRIT LED ME TO MATTHEW 23, “WE HAVE THOSE IN AUTHORITY OVER US IN THE CHURCH, WE NEED TO KNOW NOT TO FOLLOW THEIR ERRORS BUT DO FOLLOW WHAT IS CORRECT FROM GOD” IT HAS TAKEN A LONG TIME SINCE MY FIRST DISSAPOINTMENT. NOW I ASK GOD IF I AM WRONG OR RIGHT, IF I AM RIGHT I PRAY FOR THAT PERSON WHO IS WRONG. IF I AM WRONG I ASK GOD TO SHOW ME HOW TO UNDERSTAND WITH HIS PERSPECTIVE WHAT I NEED TO KNOW. I PUT ALL THE BURDEN OF THE WORLD ON GOD WHICH IS WHAT I MUST DO, SO I CAN WALK WITH HIM CONFIDENTLY AND ASSUREDLY AND RIGHTLY. I BELIEVE THAT JESUS TOOK EVERY SIN PAST PRESENT FUTURE TO THE CROSS FOR EVERYONE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD IF THEY WILL RECEIVE IT. I DON’T HAVE TO DIE ON A CROSS BUT ACCEPT WHAT HE DID FULLY, THEN LIVE IT LIKE I BELIEVE IT AND WALK WITH A “RISEN” ATTITUDE NOT A MARTYR AS I ONCE WAS. THIS HAS CHANGED EVERYTHING. NOW IT TAKES AN EFFORT ON MY PART TO BE DILLIGENT, AS AND YOU SAY KEEP ON STUDYING. THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WISDOM COMES WITH A MULTITUDE OF COUNSELORS, SO I TRY TO FIND MANY DIFFERENT CHRISTIAN MINISTERS IN A BUILDING IF GOD LEADS OR THE INTERNET OR THE TELEVISION. I HAVE ASKED FOR DISCERNMENT FROM GOD SO I WON’T BE MISLED. GOD’S RESULT IN MY LIFE, I KNOW MORE, AM DOING MORE FOR HIM, GROWING IN MY FAITH AND SEEING GOD HELP OTHERS THRU WHAT HE HAS TAUGHT ME, I AM NOT TURNING BACK IN JESUS NAME. NADINE GREGG
        PS LORD, HELP YOU PEOPLE TO SEEK YOU AND KNOW YOU MORE AS YOU DESIRE SO THE TRUE WORD OF GOD IS LEARNED, LIVED, LOVED AND HONORED! IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN!

    • “I” am of the belief that all Scripture is correct. “Since” our Creator, God, said, “Let’s make man in our image” then please tell me “why” you doubt God’s Word? We would all have the same as they, if six toes then six toes it would have been. To me.
