So what? Theologians are aware of all the connections to mythology in the Bible. A good story is a good story. Christian belief is belief in a man who actually lived and spent his life trying to make a difference for the better. All people are to be loved and true Christians do this. All people are our neighbors. It's about taking a leap of faith. Some folks just refuse to do it. ANd that's OK because God still loves them too. So....I ask again. So what? So what if it's not documented history? The stories are relevant and help us to live our lives. See the United Church of Christ web page to learn what real Christians believe.
