It seems a basic or necessary question addressed has been:
Why women were prominent in Gosepl of John?
Three general answers:
1. Addressing the Community
2. Addressing outsiders
3. Speaking against other communities
R. Brown (#3):
A. Y. Collins (#1-2): Relationships within Johannine community
characterized by mutuality
R. Karris (#2): Invitation to women to enter the community
S. Schneiders (#1): Males in Johannine Community reluctant to recognize
The topic "women as witnesses in the Gospel of John" would certainly be
by perspectives such as these.
