The Sower, The Storm and the Vine

Updated: 6 days ago

What does Jesus’ teaching of the vine and branches in John 15, have to do with Mark 4?

John 15 is an admonition by Jesus for all believers to remain in Him. The message tells us that we are the branches of the Vine and the Vine is Jesus, Himself.

But the opening chapter of Mark 4 tells us the parable of the seed that falls upon the various types of ground.

Let us read.

Mark 4:4 Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water’s edge. 2 He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: 3 “Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.”

9 Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
