:-) stuff has been slowly marinading! Are there other codes and patterns? How and why were the various stories and parables and teaching chosen? What other framing of this is possible apart from the "it is a semi historical record"

If you write down the various themes points, purposes of the writing, what patterns appear? What does not fit, is obviously an insertion by another hand. Can we work out the first and subsequent drafts of these writings?
