If you changed the title of the Bible to some other name, and changed all the personal names and places of the Bible to other names, would it make it any less true?
The words are just words that index certain concepts… a translated bible is still a Bible.
But the truth is in the relations between the words, in the context that’s woven with words through story. And so you can transpose these relations onto other stories that are similar, and find a similar truth, Aka archetypes.
The abstraction, the metaphorical relations are the essence of what communicates truth.
