Description:

A notable problem exists in Johannine sources featuring Jesus’ self-predicated “I Am” declarations: His final one, the “true vine” statement of John 15, is afforded the least amount of attention by New Testament scholars. The chief purpose of this study is to demonstrate that at John 15, an announcement is made concerning identities and roles which have direct bearing on the relationship between Israel and the (future) Church. The main argument advanced it that at John 15 Jesus announces an economical transition to be led by the Spirit-indwelt Church without collapsing the permanence and glorious future of national Israel.
