People's Bible Notes for John 15:5


Joh 15:5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches. He has already declared (Joh 15:1) that he is the True Vine, but he had not before declared that every disciple is a branch of the Vine. Observe that, not denominations, but church members, are the branches. The disciple, without Christ, "can do nothing". Paul declared, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Php 4:13).

    Jesus gave reasons why seed might not germinate (Chp 13; including not dying Chp 12). While groweth is essential fruit is the reproduction of a kind. I don't think we will always know when fruit has been produced (Chp 4)
