The dynamics of metaphor, which are found in John 15:1-8, are compared with the dynamics of metaphor in Psalm 79 (LXX). This is done against the background of the dominance of the ancient Greek philosphical tradition in considering metaphors in ancient texts. It is shown that the dynamics of metaphor in John 15 and Psalm 79 (LXX) are based on the same characteristics. This implies that more care should be taken in identifying the roots of the dynamics of metaphor in ancient literature.
