"It would have required exceptional genius to have invented the character of Jesus and put into His mouth parables that are in themselves literary masterpieces."

I always thought the parables Jesus told to be the least brilliant things in the gospels.
And it is not on the level of a masterpiece to tell people the mustard seed is the smallest of all seeds when you can't possibly know that.

"It is just not credible that all fourgospel writers with little formal education between
them just happened simultaneously to be literary geniuses of world rank."

I don't think the author of Luke can in any way be described as a 'genius'
But more to the point, from what i can tell critical scholars all agree that the authors of the gospels were intelligent, well-educated, at least trilingual people.
