      What are the choices that we have? Either John is concerned to
      present what he sees as historical persons and historical
      events or he is fabricating either or both. >>

      If you replace your expression that includes the term "fabricating" with
      "doing theological narrative", the alternatives will appear more realistic
      and acceptable. "Fabricating" has a nuance too close to "prevaricating", and
      this would certainly not be the only or the most likely alternative in Gospel
      writing to reporting detailed historical events about historical persons.
