I found much of this post very helpful, particularly the critique of conservative and liberal perspectives, with a helpful corrective offered. The notion that the meaning of certain stories rather than their historicity is a helpful one too, and why Israel found value in the adoption and reworking of various stories in the Hebrew Bible taken from the ancient near east. My only concern here is finding a balance in meaning and what must have taken place in the historical part of the narrative-historical approach (such as the historicity of the Resurrection which you mention).
