All the stories in the Bible are true, but not all are intended to be read as history. The Bible sometimes aims to give a historical chronicle of real events that really occurred. At other times it employs poetry, myth, or fiction in order to convey the truth according to that genre. Remember it is a love letter written to YOU! From God through people He inspired to tell you an important message…. That the Creator of the Universe loves you SOOOO MUCH that he sent his Son to die on a cross for you so that you may experience Salvation (repaired right relationships) so you may come to love him today and forever!! Pick up the Love Letter (aka Holy Bible) it may scare the hell out of you.
