Why is the bible the base of Christianity if it is NOT factual?

It seems to me (after) reading the bible, that it offers many fictional stories and moral common sence, but little to no facts.

  • Your assumption is wrong--The Bible is factual. It is your opinion that it is fictional. There are many other ancient historians who document the factual content of the Bible. Josepheus is one of them.

  • Josephus is under scrutiny and is disputed, Nanny. He was born AFTER Jesus died, and was not an eye wittness to anything in the time of Jesus.

    As for historical facts, there are many in the Bible, but as for the basis of the beliefs that stem from them, such as miracles, raising from the dead, Moses, the Ark of the covenant, the crucifixion, the Tower of Babel, God and so on, there is NO Historical basis for fact there.

  • I dont see how Christians can try to prove a disputed point in the bible with other bible scriptures. Where is the references that have factual meaning? Where is the documented proof?
