John 15 – Nice about the vine but what about the burnt-up branches???

There appears to be a dark side to this ‘true vine’ discourse by Jesus which is the discarded branches. In verse 2, the Father/gardener ‘cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit’ and in verse 6 he says that ‘if anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up and thrown into the fire and burned’.

We send out two emails a month, one announcing the next event, and a follow-up email when the talk has been published.
