TREES in the Bible – 18.19 mins

In time for Tu B’Shevat – the New Year for Trees!

There are many references to trees in the Bible, from the first chapter to the last!


In the beginning, at Creation, we find the “trees bearing fruit” that provided food for Adam and Eve and in the last book of Revelation we find the the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, having leaves that provide healing for the nations.  Fascinating!


Let us learn more about the significant trees recorded in the Scriptures. Particularly those referenced in the Seven Species:


For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills, a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and [date] honey (Deuteronomy 8:7-8).
