The Bible

is full of unsubstantiated tales.

Kings David & Solomon? No archaeological evidence. Jericho—had no walls for Joshua to bring down. Philistines? Not there till a thousand years later. No Goliath!

Most of the OT is propaganda—Jerusalem was under siege from the Assyrians. Hence the “jealous god” crap, keep the Israelis fighting, etc.

It really pays to read the linked article.
