Jesus is the Vine

Jesus knew that this group of disciples would constitute the formation and development of a new community that would be called the Church. The Church would have a definite function to fulfill the mission of God. Jesus wanted them to be prepared for the change that His departure would bring to their lives. Therefore, Jesus addressed three relationships that involved the disciples:   (1) their relationship with Him, (2) their relationship with one another, and (3) their relationship with the world.
