You are comparing apples and oranges. History is a very minor concern for most India sacred texts. Unlike Christsian texts, Buddhist texts actually have practical value in serving as a guide and manual for one in meditation, and describes reality as experienced in such states.As someone interested in history, I find the Judeo-Christian bible far more interesting than any of the Indian sacred text, which I find completely lacking in history and tedious too boot. At least the Judeo-Christian bible is short enough to be combined in one text, a lot more than what you can say of the Indian text.
As for history, there is some genuine history that you can sift through the record. In the book of Kings and Chronicles, there is some genuine history to be found - the account of the Assyrian Siege of Jerusalem can be compared with the Assyrian account of the same event. The details of the Temple construction is similar to what we find in the archaeology of Canaanite temples in the same region and time.
Luke's account of Paul's shipwreck provides interesting detail of 1st century ship, such as using ropes to strengthen the ships hung, number of passengers an ordinary ship could carry, the fact that ships would have figureheads. An interesting item is that the idol makers at Ephesus were complaining about the fall off in sacrifices due to the Christian activity, a complaint that echoes Pliny the Younger's comment to Trajan about how sacrifices had fallen due to Christian activity. It helps understand that some of the opposition to Christians might have been financially motivated by those (sellers of animals for sacrifice, idol makers0 that could be threaten by the rise of Christian influence. (Note, even a work of complete fiction can still give valuable and reliable historical information about the time the story is set in, even if the characters are all fictitious. For example, a wartime detective novel might provide accurate information of things like how gas rationing worked, and how night time curfews operated.)
