Any that contain a miracle or certain stand-alone stories like Job or maybe Jonah that stick out from the broader history and have quirky narratives?
Agreed. They're really bad about that when it comes to the dispensational rapture stuff.The other puzzling thing to me, is that what is commonly referred to as "Biblical literalism" (which I guess really means taking certain passages literally) seems to require ADDING quite a bit to the Bible, IMO. Like that whole 6,000 year extrapolation- it never says how long most of those people lived, so there have to be some assumptions that aren't written on the page to make that work. Literalists don't even seem to be very good at taking things literally.
Ftr, I'm not a biblical literalist or fundamentalist.
Edit: To be clear I share a lot in common with both groups it's just that they are more recent reactionary groups that focus on 3 or 4 specific doctrines while I view myself as being part of an older and broader tradition of the Reformed Faith. I mean, you never really hear anyone called a reformed fundamentalist or anything like that.
