As compared to the other three Gospels and their profuse ethical teaching, the ethics of John seems to be restricted to ch. 13, “the new commandment” of love. Hence the accusation that it is limited, scanty and far from being part of an overall ethical system. This will prove to be true only if we understand the ethics of any Gospel as being a collection of moral laws and their interpretations. In that case the Gospel of John (GJ) is indeed poor in terms of its ethical content. Making use of some methods of the antique literature, this paper aims to testify to the hidden ethical dimensions of the GJ, beyond the immediate ethical laws.
