In literary studies of biblical texts one often encounters amazing ignorance of the intricacies of literary theory and the complexity of literary issues. This article addresses this problem from the viewpoint of biblical narrative studies. General trends of these studies are discussed, then biblical narrative studies are situated in the phenomena of 'literature', and consequently in narrative theories and some crucial literary issues. Finally the article focuses on whether biblical narrative studies should persist in an old-fashioned literary approach, and some cardinal pointers ahead are presented.
