    Ultimately, the creators of The Bible are not interested in the truth per se.
    The religion of the conservative right is pure fiction, start to finish.  It's amazing that anyone believes it.  They watch what amounts to high budget superhero comics and think it's history.  

    If they were interested in truth, they would do a documentary on the ways in which the culture and politics of the late Hellenistic Middle East managed to influence the Roman Empire.

    Truth?  

    We'd better stop talking about virgin births and Satan and God turning himself into a man so he can have himself tortured to death, or whatever other bullshit manipulative political leaders have been selling credulous fools for the last two thousand years.
