  1. Jacob 5 The Allegory of the Olive Tree

  2. “The parable of Zenos, recorded by Jacob in chapter five of his book, is one of the greatest parables ever recorded. This parable in and of itself stamps the Book of Mormon with convincing truth. No mortal man, without the inspiration of the Lord, could have written such a parable. It is a pity that too many of those who read the Book of Mormon pass over and slight the truths which it conveys” (Joseph Fielding Smith, Answers to Gospel Questions, 4:141).

  3. Jacob 5 Do you know someone who has questioned God’s love for him or her, particularly during a time of trial when the person may have turned away from Him? • • A young priesthood holder develops a sinful habit. He believes that others can be forgiven, but he doubts the Lord will accept his repentance. • • A young woman transgresses a commandment. She experiences guilt, feels terrible about herself, and questions if the Lord still loves her.

  34. Jacob 5 • First Visit (Jacob 5:4-14) • The master sees that the old tame olive tree (Israel) is dying. (vs. 3) • The master prunes and fertilizes the tree and wild branches (gentiles) are grafted in.(vss. 4-11) • Tame branches are transplanted into the nethermost part of the vineyard (vss. 8, 13, 14) • The days before Christ

  35. Jacob 5 “Now in that parable the olive tree is the House of Israel in its native land it began to die. So the Lord took branches like the Nephites, like the lost tribes to other parts of the earth. He planted them all over his vineyard, which is the world. No doubt he sent some of these branches into Japan, into Korea, into China. No question about it, because he sent them to all parts of the world” (Answers to Gospel Questions,comp. Joseph Fielding Smith Jr., 5 vols. [1957–66], 4:204–5).

  36. Jacob 5 • Second Visit (Jacob 5:15-28) • The grafted-in gentiles have helped save the tree. (vss. 15-18) • The tame branches in the poor spot of ground have borne fruit. (vss. 20-22) • The good ground bears good fruit, but part is wild. (vs. 25) • After the Crucifixion

  37. Jacob 5 • Third Visit (Jacob 5:29-60) • The tree is cumbered with all sorts of fruit and none of the fruit is good; apostasy has become almost universal. (vss. 29-32, 36) (vs. 39) • In the good part of ground, the wild branches have overcome the tame. • The Lord of the vineyard weeps. • What does verse 47 tell you about how the Lord feels concerning the inhabitants of this earth? • The Great Apostasy

  38. “What could I have done more for my vineyard?” (Jacob 5:41, 47, 49) Elder Jeffrey R. Holland: “After digging and dunging, watering and weeding, trimming, pruning, transplanting, and grafting, the great Lord of the vineyard throws down his spade and his pruning shears and weeps, crying out to any who would listen, ‘What could I have done more for my vineyard?’ “What an indelible image of God’s engagement in our lives! What anguish in a parent when His children do not choose Him nor the gospel He sent!” Jeffery R. Holland, The Grandeur of God, October 2003

  39. Jacob 5 • Fourth Visit (Jacob 5:61-77) • The final gathering takes place by the Lord’s servants. (vss. 52-64) • The wild branches are cast away. (vss. 72-76) • The good are gathered and the bad burned for the last time. (vs. 77) • Our Day

  41. “What could I have done more for my vineyard?” (Jacob 5:41, 47, 49) “At least fifteen times the Lord of the vineyard expresses a desire to bring the vineyard and its harvest to his ‘own self,’ and he laments no less than eight times, ‘It grieveth me that I should lose this tree.’ [This allegory] makes the Lord’s mercy so movingly memorable.” Jeffery R. Holland, (Christ and the New Covenant [1997], 165-66).

  42. “What could I have done more for my vineyard?” (Jacob 5:41, 47, 49) “Clearly this at-one-ment is hard, demanding, and, at times, deeply painful work, as the work of redemption always is. There is digging and dunging. There is watering and nourishing and pruning. And there is always the endless approaches to grafting—all to one saving end, that the trees of the vineyard would ‘thrive exceedingly’ and become ‘one body; . . .From all the distant places of sin, it has always been the work of Christ (and his disciples) in every dispensation to gather them, heal them, and unite them with their Master” Jeffery R. Holland, (Christ and the New Covenant [1997], 165-66).

  43. Olive Trees

  44. Definition of Gethsemane Gethsemane comes from the Hebrew words Geth [Gath], meaning “press,” and semane [shemen], meaning “oil” – and therefore means “the press of oil.” The word has reference to huge stone presses that were used to squeeze the oil from olives or the juice from grapes; such presses would have been found in Gethsemane, which was a grove of olive trees. In like manner, the Savior was “pressed” in that garden by the weight of the sins of all mankind until His blood flowed from His skin. Stephen E. Robinson Believing Christ: The Parable of the Bicycle and Other Good News Page 119

  47. To produce olive oil, the refined olives had to be crushed in a press. The olives were placed in burlap bags and flattened on a furrowed stone. Then a huge crushing circular rock was rolled around on top, paced by a mule or an ox. Another method used heavy wooden levers or screws twisting beams downward like a winch upon the stone with the same effect: pressure, pressure, pressure—until the oil flowed. The first liquid to appear is red, followed by the grey-green olive oil we are used to seeing (Truman G. Madsen, “The Olive Press,” Ensign, Dec 1982, 57)
