Wow! I've now been right as often as one or two times when I disagree with
you! This is kind of like the first time I beat my father in chess...
But would you still classify the recurrence of the word patterns as
liturgical, as opposed to story-telling? How would you distinguish the two?
I'm afraid that I'm stepping into a whole can of worms I have never looked
at, genres of writing in the NT...is there a good starting point for me?
