Studies have been carried out in times past on the poor man motif in the Old Testament. The results of these have varied and few have deemed it necessary to suggest any implications their conclusions might have for the Gospels. Consequently, investigations of the motif in the New Testament area have been negligible and generally disappointing. For this reason, I have undertaken this study of the poor man motif, particularly as it appertains to the Messianic role as Jesus himself understood it.
