Two concepts paved the way for 2 additional influential ways that people analyze the Gospels: redaction and literary criticism.
To learn about these 2 criticisms, to consider whether they offer insights into better reading of the Gospels, and to utilize them where they provide benefit, is important for any theologian.
Read and watch the following resources in order to better understand redaction and literary criticism.
Strauss, Four Portraits, One Jesus, pages 80–83, 87–101

Green, Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, “Literary Criticism (Narrative Criticism) (Links to an external site.)”
After reading and viewing the resources, demonstrate your understanding of redaction and literary criticism by completing the following reaction in 1–2 paragraphs:
