The Vine Tree Typifies Christ’s Sacrifice to Produce Something to Cheer God and Man (Deut. 8:8)

Deut 8:8 A land of wheat and barley and vines and fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive trees with oil and of honey;

Deut 8:8 A land of wheat and barley and vines and fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive trees with oil and of honey;

Now let us see something concerning the trees. The first is a vine tree. What does the vine represent? In Judges 9:13 the vine said, “Shall I leave my new wine, which cheers God and men?” In one sense it depicts the sacrificing Christ, the Christ who has sacrificed everything of Himself. But this is not the main point. The main significance is that out of His sacrifice He produced something to cheer God and man—new wine. (The All-Inclusive Christ, by Witness Lee)
