Lent 5: “I Am the True Vine” John 15:1

We’re nearing the end of the Lenten journey. This week we focus on the 15th chapter of John and Jesus statement that He is the True Vine. “True” has lots of meanings, as you know. Most real, perhaps, true as opposed to false, true as in the most perfect; there are lots of ways to interpret the word true. But I’m interested in Vine. What do Vines do that speak to us of Jesus? Any vine growers out there? My dad tried grapes for a while, found out if was a lot of work. How do you hear Jesus’s statement that He is the Vine?
