English term or phrase: objectively given entity
This is the whole first paragraph of the text and I'm having trouble understanding what is meant by "objectively given entity".

Text:
"The subject of this essay is the book of Isaiah as a whole. This is an objectively given entity with a very long history and therefore no justification is needed for taking it as an object of study."

(Un cuento entero) integramente relatado/narrado


Explanation:
It sounds strange to my english ear to refer to something like a book from the bible as an 'entity'.It is a story complete in itself, which can stand alone from the other 'entities' which go to make up the bible as a whole, yes.

se trata de un elemento/asunto dado, objetivo,


Explanation:
Así lo entiendo:

Un asunto o tema dado (es decir: establecido), objetivo, que no admite discusión o necesita ser justificado porque ya tiene una tradición como objeto de estudio.

tiene/posee una entidad objetiva


Explanation:
Me saldría un poco de lo literal y construiría una frase natural conservando el sentido, como:
"Este libro/dicho libro posee una entidad objetiva, avalada por largos años/muchos años de historia..."
o
"Este libro posee una entidad objetiva con muchos años de historia por detrás..."

es una personalidad que ha sido estudiada objetivamente a lo largo de la historia


Explanation:
"entity" se refiere a Isaiah, que es una personalidad estudiada a lo largo de la historia, por lo que no es necesario justificar su estudio.

otra opción, mas literal, es la siguiente:

Es una personalidad que ha sido asignada objetivamente y que cuenta con una importante historia, por lo que no es necesario justificar su estudio.
