Your faith (philosophical presuppositions) about the Bible influence how you
read the text. Whether you start with the diachronic features to construct
a history of Israel (assuming certain features are evidence of editorial
process.) Or whether you assume a "biblical" chronology (whatever that
means) and look for coherence-explaining difficult features as "genre"- also
searching for compatibility ANE sources.
And all we have is the finished text.
