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.
