On BBC’s “The Big Question”, the question was asked “Is the Bible still relevant today?” As part of that discussion, it was said by a scholar of biblical history that the bible is mostly not factual. Although Jesus existed, David and Moses did not. Other panellists conceded that although the bible is a great book, it is more about “truth” than facts. A rational person would think that any fact is true by definition but religious people talk about truth as having a different meaning — their “truth” is a description of how people are, what makes them tick. It’s like a revelation about our psychology and out relationship to a god. This video is part of the full talk and is limited to this discussion.
