MARAIS, Bennie; VAN ECK, Ernest  and  KOK, Jacobus. Jesus as brugbouer: Jesus en die buitestanders in Johannes 4:1-42 / Jesus as a bridge builder: Jesus and the outsiders in John 4:1-42  . Scriptura [online]. 2018, vol.117, pp.1-8. ISSN 2305-445X.

This article deals with Jesus and the outsiders in John 4, with particular focus on John 4:1-42. Methodologically, the study focuses on social identity theory, and asks the question of how Jesus gets the Samaritan woman, who is a member of the outside group, into the insider group. The focus of the study is thus what the behaviour and attitude of the historical and non-conventional Jesus was toward outsiders in the strongly hierarchical social structure of his day.
