I think I’ve heard arguments for Jesus’ “son of God” status that suggest if he’s not the son of God, then the Bible is of little or no value. I couldn’t disagree more.
Jesus had a very good grasp on how things work, however he came about that knowledge. He was in touch with the power the mind has to heal. He knew how to open people up to new ideas non-confrontationally using real-world examples to help connect people with his ideas. He knew enough that what he shared and did was passed around and eventually written into a book that included plenty of commentary on his ideas. You know, the New Testament.
How good was he at what he did? Well, some say that parts of Jesus’ life story are actually bits from other myths. He must have been doing a darn good job to warrant connections like that!
Anyways, as someone who doesn’t believe in the magical elements of the Bible, when I took the time to read and learn about it, a lot of my observations through life were actually solidified more into understandings. How else do you think so many people come to believe? There is enough truth in the concepts shared in the New Testament that people latch on to the truth and in turn believe the story as well, even though there are many elements that defy logic.
So, no. The Bible is not irrelevant, even if you look at it from the standpoint of Jesus being a just a man. It is a resource that anyone can benefit from, should they be open to finding understanding in it.
