How do I search for Bible passages where the literary type is narrative but is not tagged as a Biblical event?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Unfortunately, we can';t search for ANY Biblical Event. So you have to search for specific events e.g.

{Section <Event Moses’ farewell addresses>} NOT INTERSECTS ({Section <LiteraryTyping = Story>},  {Section <LongacreGenre = Narr: Story>})

The Literary Type "Narrative" = "Prose account of events" is restricted to the NT and it doesn't work unless qualified (see the Glossary). It doesn't help that the Creation event is a "Myth" (not even a "Story"); which is why I include LongacreGenre, where it is a Narrative:Story.

So there there are many types of "Narrative" to consider e.g. History, Historical Story or a Longacre "Expository"
