Jesus describes Himself as the true vine, and God the Father as the vinedresser. The role of the vinedresser is to care for the vine so that it could grow and bear much fruit. In this imagery, Jesus’ followers are the branches in the vine. God our Father cares for the vine and shows His love by tending to those who abide in Jesus. In this lesson, we will go deeper into these truths.
