Much of the Old Testament looks like history. Yet, a close reading of the biblical text in conjunction with other ancient literature and archaeological evidence indicates that its accounts of 'events' are often inaccurate or untrue. What then were the goals of the ancient biblical historians? How are we to read these texts if not as history?
