I'm not sure why you're reducing its worth despite 400 years since the letters and gospel were put together. Many exhibits in museums such as Taipei National Palace Museum might be what you call a "legend" or Chinese "imperial propaganda." These artifacts provide volumes of anthropological insight to the people of that era, even if the supposed acts are years removed (or for Buddhist or Taoist writings, there might not even be a measurable date for such recordings or chronicles).
