Tree


TREE

Trees have special significance in the Bible. Among the many trees in the Garden of Eden, “the tree of life” and “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” standing in the middle of the garden (Gen 2:9) were special. God prohibited Adam from eating from “the tree of knowledge of good and evil” and warned him, “When you eat from it you shall die” (Gen 2:17). Satan, sin, sickness, and death came into the lives of humans from this tree. Salvation came from another tree, the tree of the cross through the death of Jesus on it (1 Pet 2:24). God revealed through John in the island of Patmos, “To the victor I will give the right to eat from the tree of life that is in the garden of God” (Rev 2:7).
