People's Bible Notes for John 15:1

Joh 15:1 The True Vine SUMMARY OF JOHN 15: The Vine and the Branches. Bearing Fruit. Glorifying the Father. The Greatest Love. The World's Hatred. The Cloak for Sin. I am the true vine. The scene must be kept in mind. The Lord and his disciples had just eaten the last supper. He had said, "Arise, let us go hence" (Joh 14:31). They had risen, but were still standing in the room. On the table, from whence they had just risen, was the "fruit of the vine", and the Lord had said he would never drink it again upon the earth. In the Old Testament, the Vine is often used as the type of Israel, planted and tended by the Almighty as the husbandman. See Isa 5:1 Ps 80:8-16 Jer 2:21. Israel, however, had proved a wild and fruitless Vine. Instead of it, therefore, Christ had now been planted by the Father as the True Vine.

    Jesus is thevgreat I AM. Jesus said without me ye can do nothing. He deserves all glory.
  • This has been my favourite verse from childhood. I have found it to be true. God has been there for me through every calamity and upheaval in my life and will continue to be there. Amen.
  • Ann Miles
    I would like to comment on Jonacani's. when you are making a statement concerning GOD, you need to spell it correctly and NEVER use his name in lower case "god". The difference is, "god" is pertaining to an object Idol that is forbidden by GOD the Father in Heaven.
  • Jonacani for verse 7
    pray is a short test it's shows to god how u full fil your soul or your spiritual life by the word of god in your evry day living,,,because pray come from the word god....
  • Sherri
    I am no scholar of the word but why make it so complicated, God sent us his only begotten SON, he is the perfect sacrifice, for all of our sins, he saved us, and no more are we separate from GOD.
  • Christ came into this world to serve a purpose... deity in service to die. The crusifiction was the only natural death that fullfiled the spiritual death of the soul. To die is to gain... dying out in the flesh means to be rid of our lusts and desire to sin no more. If your eye sins... cut it out... is a parable not a comand. Committing suicide is a sin. Giving your soul to free a brother or sister in Christ from sin to save that person from eternal hell is what Christ wants. Let the supernatural type the natural and watch what God can do... What a mighty God we serve. If a friend was sinning and for me to save that person would cause me to sin would I not want to save that person's soul? Though God knows my heart and because I trust in my God... all is well. Even if my flesh body gets in the way. I am not ashamed to serve my God.
