The Lord’s Prayer in Light of the Johannine Models

Keywords: Lord’s prayer; Our Father; John the Evangelist;

Summary/Abstract: The Johannine models, which present Mary’s dignity as the “Mother of God,” shed new light on the Lord’s prayer. Luke’s Our Father contains three requests concerning human needs and two requests directed towards God, which is reflected in the first Johannine model 3+2. Matthew’s Pater poster consists of five requests from Luke and two additional requests that only appear in the Gospel of Matthew. This corresponds to the second Johannine model 5+2. In light of the Johannine models, “Our Father” was used by Matthew, who supplemented Luke’s version.
