A fascinating, thought-provoking article. However, do you realize that you manage to re-enact the parable of the figs within it? You come across a story (the parable of the figs), find that it bears no fruit for you now, and reject the storyteller as someone who will never have anything to say to you.
The parable of the figs is only one of many, many challenging passages of the bible. Evedentially, the book never had an editor clear up its contradictions before publishing.
