Resumen

FOURIE, Johann. Indicators of the church in John's metaphor of the vine. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.1, pp. 1-12. ISSN 1018-6441.

This article aims to answer the question of what belongs to the essence of the church, as God intended it to be, by identifying certain indicators of the essence of the church through a study of one of the central metaphors of the New Testament: the vine in the Gospel of John. Through structural analyses, commentary and metaphorical analyses, several indicators of unity as part of the essence of the church emerge in this metaphor. These indicators are the primacy (or authority) of Christ, trinitarian balance, equality, interdependence, inclusivity, growth and unity (in diversity).
