Jebus was the ancient name of what is today the city of Jerusalem. This means that the people who lived there were called (I am not making this up) the Jebusites. This name was used until approximately 1400 B.C., when the Israelites entered Canaan. Here is a complete list of the times this name appears in the Bible (NIV translation):

You know, before I found E2, I never would have imagined that other people use “Jebus” as an exclamation the way QXZ and I started to after we saw this episode. But the above information, which I recently discovered quite by accident, was just one more piece of confirming evidence for me that Homer is a misunderstood genius.
