What is thisVineyard about?
In the bible God uses a Vineyard to represent His Kingdom. Many today would consider the Vineyard the church. In Isaiah 5:7 the prophet claims the vineyard of the Lord is the house of Israel. With the coming of Jesus the Vineyard was expanded to include all nations. The image of a vineyard includes rich fruit, beautiful scents, something well kept, magnificent colors and beautiful song birds. It is a place of life, to walk, to eat rich fruit, it is a place of hospitality and a place make the stranger welcome.
A passage in Leviticus instructs the vineyard owner, “you shall not strip your vineyard bare, neither shall you gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard. You shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am the Lord your God.” (19:10 ESV)
The Vineyard is for everyone; an image of God’s desire for everyone. thisVineyard hopes to be a place to share conversations about God, make friends and invite people to love. It is not limited by geography, nationality, religion or class, it is unlimited.
