Myths in the Bible grew out of the controversy over the Bible. Is every word the factual truth, just like God gave it to the men whom He inspired to write it? Or is it a book of myths written by the hand of man to tell us what happened to them when they met God? The answer hinges on the meaning of myth which is a special way of telling a story to show how God gets His point across to man. So myth is truth, but truth that is not dependent on facts to undergird it. Myths in the Bible tells the truth about God and man in the struggle of life. Myth is God's Hand reaching out to man. It is man trying to get a hold on God's Hand. It is God and man, hand in hand, facing life on this earth.
