The Seventh “I Am” Statement in John’s Gospel

The seventh Iam statement in John 15 is one of completion and perfection. It signals that Jesus has revealed himself completely. For Jesus to be the true vine means that he is the new life of the world; the true Israel who will bear much fruit to feed the nations. This is why John 15 bears such strong sacramental language (C.K. Barret). Jesus is the bread (6) and the wine (15).
