What is the difference between the Bible and The Iliad which the Greeks were convinced explained the Trojan war as others are that the Bible explains things?

The Iliad was long considered to have been a purely mythical account. Since then, the city of Troy, central to the Iliad, has been located and the book has been found by scholars to reflect life during the Greek Mycenaean period. Thus, the historical content of the book may have some factual basis. The Iliad also contains many accounts of the gods and is sometimes regarded, along with the Odyssey as the 'bible' of the ancient Greeks. As the question suggests, there are some parallels between the Iliad and the Bible. Having said that, it is a matter of faith whether to believe in the gods of the Iliad, and few do today.
