Truth of It All
We are very interested in whether a biblical event really took
place. Ever since modern research resources, including archaeology,
have been available to us, we have sought out evidence about this or
that miracle or meeting or conversation portrayed in scripture.
Albert Schweitzer's "Quest for the Historical Jesus" was an
of just such an exploration. That book was published early in [the
last] century. Over the decades that have passed since then, many
theologians and biblical scholars have realized that there is much
in the world of faith that cannot be pinned down as linear fact,
and that there is much that is rich and powerful in mystery, that
which cannot be explained by the mind of man or woman.
