Description:

This paper shows how the Christian scriptures use of an intensely personal, narrative form of story that gives that religion its unique quality, as distinct from Judaism, the religion Christianity evolved and sprung from. It suggests that because of the fact that Jesus? believes were disseminated in a narrative structure, the confession and the personal became the dominant Christian mode of understanding the world, rather than the collective and the tribal.

From the paper:

"The New Testament, or Christian Bible, is divided into three basic sections, that of the Gospels, the Epistles, and lastly the Book of Revelation. The latter two sections were composed long after the death of Jesus. The last has a strikingly a similar form to apocalyptic books of that period. However, the first section, the section that is the founding core of the Christian story, could be entitled ?Jesus speaks.? Although these books were written considerably after the actual life and death of Jesus, the gospels thus attempt to convey a certain sense of accuracy, of reported testimony of the life of Jesus. "
