The literary approach to narratives of the New Testament has now been established. However, there are some very interesting literary issues on which we can now reflect. Do the Gospels comply with genuine literary standards? Are they really suited to full-scale literary analysis? What distinguishes a 'literary' text from a 'non-literary' text? How important is the 'literariness' of biblical narratives? Isn't the value of the literary analysis of biblical texts overestimated? Doesn't it go against the grain of the whole nature of biblical texts? This article endeavours to provide some answers to these issues, focusing on the New Testament texts.
