Biblical History vs. Myths of other Religions

Dominique writes: I found your website to be extremely informative – thank you for providing answers/perspectives to difficult questions.

If I may ask a question of my own: I was wondering about the similarities between myths and the occurrences of the Bible and Jesus (i.e. virgin birth, death and Resurrection etc.) – other myths seem to share similar attributes, some preexisting the Gospel. How does one deal with the issue of time in respect to other religions/myths claiming Christianity borrowing from them, and getting a solid grasp of the historicity of Jesus Christ.

This is a common question.

The way I explain it is that the reverse is true. While the myths you mention may preexist New Testament times, they do not preexist Adam or Noah and his sons.  The Bible does not claim and reinterpret stories from other peoples and religions, it restores the true story that was earlier known, then corrupted by those other peoples and religions.

Adam, Noah, and Abraham all understood the full gospel. Adam and his sons sacrificed the first-born of the flock symbolizing the coming Christ.   Moses writes of this in passing while later giving the Mosaic law – full of symbolism of the atonement of Jesus Christ for the sins of man.

Biblical History vs. Myths of other Religions
“Isaiah wrote of the virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14), the crucifixion and resurrection (Isaiah 53) and more. “

Isaiah wrote of the virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14), the crucifixion and resurrection (Isaiah 53) and more. David‘s psalms often describe in detail Christ’s suffering.  We must assume that the details and purpose of Christ’s birth, life and death were known since the beginning of time.

Throughout time, as people turned from the Lord and lost the full truth, some of the stories were retained, corrupted and handed down as myths.

While the myths you mention may preexist New Testament times, they do not preexist Adam or Noah and his sons.
