John 15: 1-17 - The Church is the Vineyard of God: How can the church make an impact? - (Video) - (Audio Only) - Alex Warren - Evening Service

Jesus echoes that failure of Israel in his parable of the vineyard tenants (Matt 21:33-46; Mk 12:1-12) Jesus declares himself the true vine, on which the church depends for its life and existence and restates again the promise and purpose of God that his people should bear fruit.
