Chapter Summary

A number of French structuralists and German text linguists have occupied themselves with the Bible because on one hand the various texts which the Bible contains can make a contribution, too, to a universally valid text grammar, and on the other hand because through this method new light can be thrown upon the text concerned and hereby the interpretation of the text can be made more fertile. The aim of this chapter is to study a section of a text with a parallel according to structuralist method and form-critical "redaktionsgeschichtliche" method and thence to draw provisional conclusions regarding the reconcilability of the two methods. To this end the story of the storm on the lake in the versions of Mk and Mt is chosen. In conclusion, the chapter remarks that the structuralist method has a clearer relevance to the average reader of the Gospels than the form-critical and "redaktionsgeschichtliche" method.

Keywords: "redaktionsgeschichtliche" method; Form-criticism; French structuralist; German text linguist; Storm on the Lake; structuralist method
