In many science fora it is popular to dismiss Biblical references. It is also popular to opine Christianity as a Roman invention of Constantine for political purposes. I would caution that lack of evidence as to the historicity of Christ is not evidence of His non existence. I do agree that the Christian Bible is not a factual history. However, the Torah and the New Testament do offer information (of belief systems) that I accept as approximations of actual events. It's best for scientist, especially, to keep an open mind as to what is proven and what is surmised. How many stories were retold and repeated and embellished before they were recorded in written form? The older the more valuable the insight into past human social order.
