The Greatest Story Ever Told
The Bible did not fall down from heaven as a sourcebook for spirituality, personal life-lessons, or even as a collection of doctrines. Rather, it should primarily be understood as a report of an unfolding drama that took place in real space and time history that culminates in the life of a particular Jew born in Bethlehem in the days of Caesar Augustus. If this story isn’t true, it should be completely rejected and set aside. But if it is true, it’s the greatest story ever told.
