Not forgetting of course, that the Bible was written a number of centuries after
the incident which is called "the birth of Christ". Evidence suggests that
the Gospels were written sometime in the 4th and 5th centuries (ie, 300-400 CE*)

The term BIBLE, I beleive translates as "collection of stories", or some such.
