Description

This feature was one of the most remarkable in all the Temple precincts. Middot records that “A golden vine stood over the entrance to the sanctuary, trained over posts; and whosoever gave a leaf, or a berry, or a cluster as a freewill-offering, he brought it and the priests hung it thereon.” Christ may have alluded to this very feature of the Temple when he said in John 15. 1: “I am the true vine.”
