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.

Discussion for John 15

    Thanks God that I am one of the chosen ones. the fact that He says He is the true vine and we are the branches, it is a must that we abide in Him, for if we do not we will bear no fruit, we might end up dry, and a dry branch is called wood and only goes to make fire and is finished. How I wish to abide in Him all the times so that i do not dry up and become the wood (useless creature here).

    God has chosen me : That is quite a statement coming from my Lord God : Since He has chosen me and ordained me to GO and bring forth fruit : and that fruit to remain : What God does : Sticks !! Whatever I ask in His name , He will do it for me : I must ask in accordance to His word which is His will !!

    That's true because Jesus is the law if he did not come people would have not known the truth because most of the things that were prohibited by the Jews was not true that's why he abolished other laws.

    Comment*above text is a blessing to every child of God that is ready to be blessed by obeying the request of the master. Master asked us to go an bear fruit and by doing this, he said His father will answer our prayer. Then as many child of God that will show that he loves, must obey any of his command to the letter, doing this is also attract his blessings to ourselves. We can call that chapter
