Has anyone attempted a detailed look at the New Testament after removing all references to and assumptions from the Gospels and Acts?

I propose the result is a very different set of documents that make sense in their own terms and that many conflicts and confusions are directly caused by importing later assumptions.

The classic example is that the second coming will disappear - the documents are discussing the coming of the Christ, Yahweh’s anointed saviour, the name above all names without a name.
