Grapes are amazing! They are used to make so many wonderful things, from jellies, jams, salads, oils, wines, the list is endless. Every part of the plant can be used in some way. There are so many varieties.
Grapes are mentioned many times in the Bible and symbolic of many spiritual things. As the Israelites were ready to enter the promised land, the Lord told Moses to send out one representative from each tribe to see what the new land was like. They were supposed to bring back samples of the abundant food growing there. Instead most of the men came back with an evil report about powerful giants in the land, causing panic in the camp. They all wanted to run back to Egypt and slavery instead.
Only a few of the men came back with a good report. They brought back proof with one cluster of grapes that had to be carried on a pole by two men! Thats a lot of grapes! God gave Israel physical evidence of His abundant provision waiting for them. The Israelites believed the evil story instead.
Because of their fear and unbelief, they were not allowed to enter the Promised Land until all the unbelievers had died off in the wilderness. Even though they had witnessed the most spectacular miracles, those twenty years old and up (at the time of that evil report) never entered the promised land because of fear and believing an evil report.
Whose report do you believe? Giants or grapes? I choose grapes.
When they came to the valley of Eshcol, they cut down a branch with a single cluster of grapes so large that it took two of them to carry it on a pole between them! They also brought back samples of the pomegranates and figs.
