The Full Story
The bible is like an onion. It has layers upon layers upon layers. Originally written in Hebrew, each letter of the original Hebrew alphabet, had a number, a picture, and an alternative meaning, so, in addition to what the words were saying, the combinations of the numbers, pictures and other meanings tell a much deeper, clearer picture and in many cases an entirely different story just like the parables.
According to Proverbs, "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter." (Proverbs 25:2). Unfortunately, without being diligent, we barley scratch the skin let a lone get down a few layers.
Due to our culture, our mythologies, and familiar upbringing, we are not even aware that such a thing exists; “You are experts at setting aside and nullifying the commandment of God in order to keep your [man-made] tradition and regulations. (Mark 7:9) and partly because it is beyond our natural ability; “...Eye has not seen, nor ear has heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him". 1 Corinthians 2:9. Hidden in plain sight, the layers of the bible are so many that without revelation knowledge from God, it goes right over our heads and even then, our hearts are so hard and our thinking is so limited that we can't help but miss it.
Revelation Knowledge From God:
However, if we are interested, all we have to do is ask; If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him". (James 1:5).
The more we study the deeper we can go.
