Abstract

The chapters preceding the allegory of the olive tree in Jacob 5 provide important insights into why the allegory was included in the Book of Mormon. Zenos’s allegory tells of the love of the Master (Jesus) of the vineyard, which love is portrayed as the Master cares for, grieves over, and rejoices in the condition of his vineyard.
