The point I'm making is that, textually speaking, it should be and arguably is one of the most accurate books (to the original writing) from that time period. I'm talking about the Bible as a historical document, not a holy book. Do I believe it is a holy book? Yes, but we're talking about it's accuracy to its original autographs, not the accuracy of the claims in those autographs.
