30. Telephone

The stories in the Bible were repeated orally for many years. Undoubtedly, they were embellished and fabricated. Many were based on pagan tales and myths.

Did you ever play telephone? A sentence or phrase is repeated from one person to the next in a line or circle. By the time it gets to the end, it bares very little resemblance to the original.

How, then, could the Bible stories remain constant for so many (maybe 100) years before being written down?

I've always felt they were a bunch of fairy tales.
