Well to us Pagans, it's pretty much just a good story, with a bit of real world historical accounting. LOL,
Just having a spot of fun there, seriously though, to Christians the bible should be read in it's entirety, if there are parts that may be pointless
to one particular Christian at one particular moment of their lives, but each of the stories does have a moral.
I will also agree with the Holy Roman Catholic Church though when they say that the bible should not be taken literally. Instead one should read each
of the Old Testament's stories with the same mindset that one would read the fables that Jesus told to illustrate his points, that is, while not
factually having occoured, these stories do hold a moral that should be thought about, interpreted for relevancy and Christians should follow.
