"All literature stems from myth" - Northrop Frye

A Perspective on Myth
Updated: 07/09/2019

Myth from Around the World

Every inhabited continent of the globe has presented us with huge amounts of ancient myth from different cultures and eras. The myth from each continent would fill libraries, and more is being added from a reservoir that is greater than what has already been assayed. To a great extent, cultures around the world have settled down into the countries that we have today but there are plenty of exceptions, where some countries have more than one culture, and some cultures transcend the borders of countries.

Christendom essentially dismisses this extensive corpus of religio-myth as a false narrative, and doesn't pay much attention to it. The Old Testament is only a part of the Judeo-Hebrew culture's ancient writings that stand right alongside all of the other mythologies of the world. Protestantism accepts this material as the world of God purely because the perception is that Jesus put his stamp of approval upon it. Yet this conclusion can be challenged and found to be unsustainable.

Just because the Father entity chose the Israeli culture within which to give the great demonstration doesn't mean that God put his stamp of approval on their mythology as being the truth. In most ways, it is as bizarre as he balance of them.
