I am the Vine, You are the Branches - John 15:1-17

What is your favourite thing about vineyards? Is it the spacious rolling hills, the seemingly endless rows of grape vines, or the wine tasting tours? Using the very familiar and common metaphor of a vineyard, Jesus painted an intimate picture of connectedness and friendship with his disciples. Jesus urged the remaining disciples to remain close to Him for they are about to experience hardship and circumstances unlike anything that they have encountered before.

 


I am the vine, you are the branches. Remain in me and I will remain in you. Apart from me you cannot bear fruit.

Relationships: Love, Obedience, and the Trinity - John 14:15-31

In John 14, we come across the beautiful doctrine of the Trinity; God in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In response to the disciples’ request to show them the Father, Jesus explained the interconnectedness of the Father, Himself, and Holy Spirit. The deepest truth about who God is not His qualities but the uniqueness of His triune nature, relationships (John McMurray). At the center of the divine Trinity is the eternal loving relationship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Just stop and think, the Triune God invites us into that eternal relationship!

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life - John 14:1-14

In the ancient patriarchal world, when a man is betrothed to a woman, he would return to his father’s house and build a home on the family property. When it was completed, the groom would then return to the bride’s house and bring her home with him. So Jesus said, “In my Father’s house are many rooms, I am going to prepare a place for you, and I will come back and take you to be with me.” (14:2-3). The original readers of the Gospel would understand this metaphor. John, who also wrote the book of Revelation, described Jesus’ return for us as a groom coming to meet his bride (Rev 21:1-2).

 

When Jesus declared I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life (14:6), it served to comfort the disciples. These last moments of Jesus’ life were filled with trouble. But the way to true life is to follow Jesus; He will lead us to the Father. Anyone who has seen Jesus has seen the Father (14:9). The life application is for us to remain faithful in following Jesus even in difficult life circumstances.
