If he's a priest, he must already know much of his own religion's
rituals and myths, otherwise what's he doing being a priest? The fact
that he knows at least 10 points of divine magic means he is already
familiar with the myths by which his god obtained those powers.

I presume he'd find them out in the same way that any terestrial priest
would find out about the myths and lore of his or her religion.
