Joh 15:1
15:1 I {1} am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

 (1) We are by nature dry and fit for nothing but the fire.
     Therefore, in order that we may live and be fruitful, we
     must first be grafted into Christ, as it were into a vine,
     by the Father's hand: and then be daily moulded with a
     continual meditation of the word, and the cross: otherwise
     it will not avail any man at all to have been grafted
     unless he cleaves fast to the vine, and so draws juice out
     of it.

Joh 15:7
15:7 {2} If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall
     ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

 (2) Whoever rests in Christ's doctrine abides in him, and
     therefore brings forth good fruit, and the Father will not
     deny anything to such a person as this.

Joh 15:8
15:8 {a} Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit;
     so shall ye be my disciples.

     (a) As one would say, "Herein will my Father be glorified,
         and herein also will you be my disciples, if you bring
         forth much fruit."

Joh 15:9
15:9 {3} As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: {b}
     continue ye in my love.

 (3) The love of the Father towards the Son, and of the Son
     towards us, and of us toward God and our neighbour, are
     joined together with an inseparable knot: and there is
     nothing more sweet and pleasant than it is.  Now this love
     shows itself by its effects, a most perfect example of
     which Christ himself exhibits to us.
     (b) That is, in that love with which I love you, which love
         is the responsibility of both parties.

Joh 15:15
15:15 {4} Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant
      knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you
      friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I
      have made known unto you.

 (4) The doctrine of the gospel, as it is uttered by Christ's
     own mouth, is a most perfect and absolute declaration of
     the counsel of God, which pertains to our salvation and is
     committed unto the apostles.

Joh 15:16
15:16 {5} Ye {c} have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and
      ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and
      [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall
      ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

 (5) Christ is the author and preserver of the ministry of the
     gospel, even to the end of the world, but the ministers
     have above all things need of prayer and brotherly love.
     (c) These words plainly teach us that our salvation comes
         only from the favour and gracious goodness of the
         everlasting God towards us, and of nothing that we do
         or can deserve.

Joh 15:18
15:18 {6} If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before
      [it hated] you.

 (6) When the faithful ministers of Christ are hated by the
     world as their master was, it should not cause them to
     fear, but rather strengthen and encourage them.

Joh 15:21
15:21 {7} But all these things will they do unto you for my
      name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.

 (7) The hatred that the world bears against Christ proceeds
     from the stupidity of the mind, which nonetheless is
     voluntarily blind, so that those of the world cannot give
     any excuse to explain away their fault.

Joh 15:22
15:22 {d} If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not
      had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.

      (d) As one would say, "If I had not come, these men would
          not have been wrong in saying before God's judgment
          seat that they are religious, and void of sin: but
          since I came to them, and they completely rejected me,
          they can have no cloak for their wickedness."

Joh 15:25
15:25 But [this cometh to pass], that the word might be
      fulfilled that is written in their {e} law, They hated me
      without a cause.

      (e) Sometimes this word "law" refers to the five books of
          Moses, but in this place it refers to the whole
          scripture: for the place that he refers to is found in
          the Psalms.

Joh 15:26
15:26 {8} But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto
      you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which
      proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

 (8) We will surely stand against the rage of the wicked by the
     inward testimony of the Holy Spirit.  But the Holy Spirit
     speaks in no other way and is consistent with what he spoke
     by the mouth of the apostles.
