According to the stories and hypothesis god allegedly preserved his word through "inspiration" of those that copied and compiled the biblical texts people are made to believe. But Why did god not "inspire" people to preserve god's artifacts since they are equally or more important than mere words and stories men keep telling themselves over and over and over? The real artifacts would be miraculous to behold, being prepared or inspired by god, and the message of seeing them would further Christianity immensely no? If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words would be worth seeing the original stone tablets that were alleged to be inscribed by god himself? God deemed them important to introduce them to people in stories, but not to inspire to preserve them?
Even timely things like contemporary paintings of Jesus, bust, empty tomb etc would be valuable. Wouldn't that be something. Why did god's message have to be completely verbal?
