Summary: Who were the 'poor' of the Gospel of John? Ling argues that they are best understood in the context of the ascetic, 'alternative' religious groups that flourished in first-century Judaea. In his view this Judaean focus rather than an early Christian 'sectarian' agenda accounts for the distinctiveness of John's text.
