The True Vine (John 15 v 1 – 8)
Vine is a tree that is common in Israel and God has used it severally to represent the nation of Israel (Isaiah 3v14, 5v1-7; Psalm 80 v8-9)
Jesus is the true vine and the branches depend on the vine for their continued life. In Him we are complete ; a branch cannot bear fruits unless it is connected to their source. The Father (God) is the Vine Dresser and the believers are the branches.
