True Vine

40 Names of Jesus in 40 days of Lent — Day 38

Maundy Thursday 2022

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine dresser.”

John 15:1

Unlike the other Gospel writers, John does not mention Jesus taking the cup of wine and saying, “This is my body,” he does tell his disciples that he is the true vine immediately after the last supper.

I blogged on this passage in Lent 2016. It took me two posts. Then in 2020, we had a sermon series on the “I am” sayings of Jesus. Here they are for you to read again.

Donald Trump’s Bible.
Grapes develop by remaining on the vine.
