When Jesus says “let us go from here”, they are about to change their physical location.
(1) the path from the Upper Room to the west side of the Kidron;
(2) the path that crossed the Kidron and reached the Garden of Gethsemane.
Then, the hour and the power of darkness would arrive.
Here in verse 1 we have the seventh and final “I am” statement of Jesus.
In the Old Testament, the vine was used as a symbol of Israel.
But Israel turned out to be a faithless vine.
The nation did not produce the fruit that the Lord expected from her.
Isaiah also prophesied about the True Vine - The Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the True Vine as opposed to the fruitless vine: faithless Israel.
