Timothy Ling argues that this demands a new social-scientific approach to the Gospel and Letters of John that moves away from the accepted sectarian interpretation. He attributes their distinctiveness instead to their roots in Jesuss Judaean ministry, as contrasted with the Galilean ministry that has attracted much recent study.

In particular, Ling contends that the numerous references to the poor in the New Testament can be better understood in the context of the alternative ideologies found among pietistic religious groups practising asceticism, renunciation, and other forms of virtuoso religion in first-century Judaea.

In doing so, he mounts a convincing challenge to the current dominant reading of the Gospel of John as a product of early Christian sectarianism.
