The Fruit of the Vine
The fruit of the vine is symbolic of something spiritual, whereas vegetables, or those items grown in the earth are symbolic of something worldly.
- I Kings 21:2 So Ahab spoke to Naboth, saying, “Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden,
- Numbers 11:5 We remember the fish which we ate freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic; (Egypt is also symbolic of the world)
The Fruitless – Worthless Vine
- Ezekiel 15:4 Instead, it (the vine) is thrown into the fire for fuel; the fire devours both ends of it, and its middle is burned. Is it useful for any work?
