C.H. Dodd on scripture and history

When we begin to search for the principle of unity [in the Bible], the first thing we observe is that the whole of the varied material is strung upon a thread which consists of narrative.  This narrative gives a kind of `calvacade’ of human life through many centuries, beginning in the cloudy realms of myth and legend, and emerging into straightforward history.
