288 ámpelos – a grapevine; (figuratively) Jesus Christ, "the true vine" (Jn 15:1). 288 /ámpelos ("vine") is also used symbolically of Christless Judaism and apostate Christianity (Rev 14:18,10), i.e. the (external) religious body of people which merely pretends to bear fruit but is in fact fruitless.

Only Christ Himself is the true Vine, in whom the people of God are formed into the mystical body of Christ. This is the fruit of His love (redemption). Compare Jn 15:1,4,5 with 1 Cor 12:13.

[288 (ámpelos) is used of a literal grapevine in Mt 26:29; Mk 14:25; Js 3:12.]

Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 288: ἄμπελος

ἄμπελος, , (from Homer down), a vine: Matthew 26:29; Mark 14:25; Luke 22:18; James 3:12. In John 15:1, 4f Christ calls himself a vine, because, as the vine imparts to its branches sap and productiveness, so Christ infuses into his followers his own divine strength and life. ἄμπελος τῆς γῆς in Revelation 14:18 (Rec.st omits τῆς ἀμπέλου.), John 15:19, signifies the enemies of Christ, who, ripe for destruction, are likened to clusters of grapes, to be cut off, thrown into the winepress, and trodden there.
