It might be because my first language is not English, but I have hard time fully understanding what you are asking here. Could you please rephrase/explain a bit?
There are some undercurrents and assumptions in the questions.
Traditional religious interpretation of the Bible makes some assumption of a comprehensive narrative and fits interpretation into that. i.e., Jesus came to die for our sins, so he knew he was going to be crucified. Alternatives frequently are attempts to destroy this framework. The framework does not hold up very well, so that is not terribly difficult. i.e., Jesus, or whoever he was, actually was an apocalyptic preacher, so he was not too concerned about earthly things, or about living a long productive life.
The alternative to the alternatives that I am looking for is is to start with the scriptures as historical documents of unknown authorship and develop hypothesis of their intent based on knowledge of their context. The two books I've mentioned are the only two that have come close to this approach. Are there others out there, or any other approach that might have value?
