Jesus gave his disciples a very vivid illustration that is recorded in John 15. It’s a very familiar passage to many of us, but have we really dug into what Jesus is saying? What does it mean to be attached to the vine? What is the responsibility of a branch? Do we have a choice in the matter?
Then, as Jesus finishes up talking about being in the vine, He takes a drastic turn to talk about trials. Or at least it seems drastic. Why does Jesus go from talking about love and being on the vine, to talking about being hated for being His disciples so quickly?
Listen in to the 6th week of this module as we talk about this amazing illustration!
