James Jordan on Trees in the Bible

Yellow and Green

"Trees arrest our attention in the earliest chapters of the Bible; we are told not only that the Garden of Eden was planted with all kinds of trees, but that there were two special trees in its center, the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Adam's interaction with these two trees almost doomed humanity, had not the Shoot of Jesse come to die on the Tree of the Cross. As a result, God's people can be replanted and flourish 'like a tree planted by streams of water, which yeilds fruit in it's season, and it's leaf does not wither.'"

-Through New Eyes

I was beginning to worry about you. Good to see you posting again. And as usual, you've managed to find a concept that I've never imagined.
