Redeemed sinner, grateful that it is God's gift to me, or I would never make it.
"The bible is fiction. All of it." Really? How deluded does one have to be to reach that conclusion?
It is manifestly evident that many passages of the Bible are historically proven, and totally factual.

It appears so to me, but I would be interested to hear other (theists) opinions.

When Josephus writes about the the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James, is this THE?
Jesus Christ whose brother was indeed called James?
Book 20, Chapter 9, 1 of the Antiquities
This text is not in dispute by scholars.
Of course Josephus is not quite contemporary with Jesus, but then we know that there are few to zero contemporary Judean writings, and none whatsoever from Roman sources.
that fail to mention Jesus?
Oh no, that's right, THERE AREN'T ANY!!

I often see atheists saying: "There is no evidence for Jesus outside the Bible except from many years after his death. As there are so many Roman records from the time, isn't it strange that none mention Jesus."
BUT so far not one example has been given that fits into the time frame, the locale and the "Roman records" criteria.
Could it indeed be that actually there aren't any at all?
Anyone got anything that fits the bill?

As Paul and John clearly teach that Jesus is the Creator, as per Genesis 1, how exactly is He not God?
"For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17He is before all things, and in him all things hold together." Colossians 1:16-17
Even if you allow the unjustified JW addition of "other" to things, Jesus still created everything in creation. So God shared His creative acts with another, who was not God, yet still revealed that "in the beginning God created....."

So why do many "christian" sects struggle to join the dots up? You are being lied to. The "trinity" is NOT a 4th century construct - it is there throughout!!
"Let those who have any doubt whether אלהים Elohim, when meaning the true God, Jehovah, be plural or not, consult the following passages, where they will find it joined with adjectives, verbs, and pronouns plural.

Why do so many people baulk against the idea? So the word Trinity is a latter day term, but the principle is there right from the get go. Open your hearts to the ONE God in all His fullness - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In the beginning God....(Hebrew - Elohim) - do a study.
An eminent Jewish rabbi, Simeon ben Joachi, in his comment on the sixth section of Leviticus, has these remarkable words: "Come and see the mystery of the word Elohim; there are three degrees, and each degree by itself alone, and yet notwithstanding they are all one, and joined together in one, and are not divided from each other." He must be strangely prejudiced indeed who cannot see that the doctrine of a Trinity, and of a Trinity in unity, is expressed in the above words. The verb ברא bara, he created, being joined in the singular number with this plural noun, has been considered as pointing out, and not obscurely, the unity of the Divine Persons in this work of creation. In the ever-blessed Trinity, from the infinite and indivisible unity of the persons, there can be but one will, one purpose, and one infinite and uncontrollable energy
