TSNTyndale Study Notes:

15:1 I am: See study note on 6:35. The grapevine and the vineyard traditionally represented God’s people, planted and tended by him in Israel (Ps 80:8-18; Isa 5:1-7; Jer 2:21; 12:10-11; Ezek 15:1-5; Hos 10:1-2). When Jesus used this image, he made an important departure: He declared that he is the true grapevine and that a relationship with God requires attachment to him.

TTNTyndale Theme Notes:

Remaining in Christ

The Greek term menō, often translated “remain,” “stay,” or “abide,” occurs frequently in relation to Jesus’ descriptions of profound, intimate, and enduring relationships. For example, Jesus said, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to [menō en, ‘stay in’] my teachings” (John 8:31). The idea is that a disciple’s life is fully formed by Jesus’ word. Jesus also described how the Son is in the Father and the Father is in the Son (John 14:10-11). Likewise, when we remain in Christ, the Son is in us and we are in the Father and the Son (17:21-23). Both the Father and the Son come and make their home within disciples.

This mutual indwelling is precisely what it means that the disciple remains in Christ. We cannot gain the permanence of our relationship by our own effort; this relationship is only made permanent by the gracious initiative of God indwelling our lives through his Spirit. This means commitment on the part of both God and the disciple. The mutual indwelling between God and the believer is not a fleeting or temporary commitment, but an enduring, permanent, and eternal relationship (see 1 Jn 2:14, 17).

UTNuW Translation Notes:

Connecting Statement:

Connecting Statement:

The part of the story from the previous chapter continues. Jesus continues to speak to his disciples either at the end of their evening meal or after they have finished that meal and are walking to Gethsemane. It is unclear whether or not they left immediately after Jesus said “Let us go from here,” at the end of the previous chapter (John 14:31).

Note 1 topic: figures-of-speech / metaphor

ἐγώ εἰμι ἡ ἄμπελος ἡ ἀληθινή

I am the vine ¬the true

Jesus uses the true vine to refer to himself. As a vine is the source of life for its branches, so Jesus causes people to live in a way that pleases God and brings other people to believe in Jesus. Since the vine is an important metaphor in the Bible, you should translate the words directly or use a simile and not provide a plain explanation in the text of your translation. Alternate translation: “I am like a true vine”

Note 2 topic: translate-unknown

ἡ ἀληθινή

the ¬the true

The word translated vine refers specifically to the grapevine plant that produces grapes. If your readers would not be familiar with grapevines, use an equivalent word in your language for a vine that produces fruit. Alternate translation: “grapevine” or “fruit-producing vine”

Note 3 topic: guidelines-sonofgodprinciples

ὁ Πατήρ μου

the Father ˱of˲_me

Father is an important title for God.

Note 4 topic: figures-of-speech / metaphor

ὁ Πατήρ μου ὁ γεωργός ἐστιν

the Father ˱of˲_me the farmer is

Jesus uses farmer to refer to God. Just as a farmer takes care of thevine to ensure it is as fruitful as possible, so God takes care of his people. If this might confuse your readers, you could use a simile. Alternate translation: “my Father is like a gardener”

ὁ γεωργός

the the farmer

While farmer is a general term for anyone who farms the ground, in this context it refers to someone who takes care of grapevines and grows grapes. Alternate translation: “vine grower” or “grape farmer”
