      The problem with the "old" paradigm is that there was no general
      agreement in distinguishing what was remembered about Jesus and
      what had been added by the church. The old radical critics believed
      that almost everything was added, except for the few (circularly
      selected) bits that supported their pet theories. Naturally, other
      radical critics thought those bits were later creations and promoted
      other bits as early.

      If anything demolished radical criticism, it was Form Criticism,
      which gave scholars an agreed methodology for separating what
      Jesus said from what the church said.

      If Earl Doherty, Wells, or anyone else (il professore?) wants to
      return to radical criticism, he must point out the flaws in Form
      Criticism and propose a methodology better than Form Criticism in
      distinguishing earlier elements from later elements.
