DALLAS, TX (MMD Newswire) January 31, 2013 -- This critical discovery wasn't found at Qumran, in a remote monastery, or in the Vatican vaults, but in Texas. Biblical textual and form critic, Anne Sugano, explains in her new book, The Parable Blueprint, that biblical scripture has been written using a structured, yet highly creative form of writing. "Think of Iambic Pentameter or Haiku Poetry. These are specific forms of writing that use guidelines. Much of the Bible is built that way. I call it the parable blueprint.

Many books of the Bible have been constructed using a special format that is filled of key relationships that bring deeper insight into the scriptures. Biblical texts have been written as a series of parables. When a reader looks at the texts laid out in parables, rather than by chapters titles and subtitles, new insights can been seen that otherwise remain unnoticeable in the way Bibles present the scriptures.

Though the texts don't appear to be parables on the surface, they work like parables because they were built like parables. A parable of Jesus is a window into how so many of the scriptures have been written, even Paul's letters. Looking at the parable blueprint guidelines, which include dynamics within the Greek text, makes it clear that the writers certainly wrote this way."

When the scriptures were written, it seems that only those in an inner circle were privy to knowing about the literary form, then over time, the recipe was forgotten. Now it is finally resurfaced. It is a very noteworthy discovery.

"The Bible is full of repeat information or "doubles" that have been explained over the years by scholars. However, these doubles are part of the parable blueprint technique, putting a whole new light on the discussion. In so many different ways this discovery literally changes the way the Bible has been viewed and understood."

The Parable Blueprint is the first book in the Parable Project series. The book explains the parable blueprint in detail and presents the four gospels as parables, allowing readers to see those texts in the eyes of the writer. Book two is underway.
