1 I am the true VINE, and my Father is the husbandman."
I believe that. My faith in Jesus is based on much more than a "few statements."
BTW what does this have to do with the main point of this thread, Santa Claus and public school?
I have no idea. The topic has strayed, as usual...
My point is this. Jesus is not, in fact, a vine. He never has been, and never was. But he said he was a vine; the true vine, in fact.
So why did he say that? Why did he say something that is not, in fact, true?
