      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
      women
      Schüssler-Fiorenza (#3):

      The topic "women as witnesses in the Gospel of John" would certainly be
      shaped
      by perspectives such as these.
