This is not true. In the first place, according to its own mythology, the Bible was written before the concept of historical writing came into being. Secondly, the Bible is a religious fiction: its purpose is to show the good things that happen to people who believe in its version of god, and to show the bad things that happen to people who do not. Any history or geneaology or anything else that /may/ be in it is secondary to that purpose. To tell people that it is history, or a historical record, in any capacity is to mistake its purpose and the nature of historical documents.
I mean, the Harry Potter books feature a version of London in them, but you'd be foolish to tell people they were a history of London.
