"There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks.  Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story." ~Linda Hogan

Tree of Life

What is the Tree of Life?

Most or all major spiritual traditions and religions have a concept of the tree of life.  For thousands of years the notion of the tree of life has been taught and known in the Middle East and elsewhere.  Here's some of the oldest, if not the oldest, information regarding the tree of life.

  • Genesis 2:9
    And YHVH Elohim made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
    Revelation 2:7
    He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of Elohim.
  • Proverbs 3:13-18
       13 Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,
           the man who gains understanding,

        14 for she is more profitable than silver
           and yields better returns than gold.

        15 She is more precious than rubies;
           nothing you desire can compare with her.

        16 Long life is in her right hand;
           in her left hand are riches and honor.

        17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
           and all her paths are peace.

        18 She is a tree of life to those who embrace her;
           those who lay hold of her will be blessed.

    Proverbs 11:30
    The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.
    Proverbs 11:29-31 (in Context) Proverbs 11 (Whole Chapter)

  • Proverbs 13:12
    Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
    Proverbs 13:11-13 (in Context) Proverbs 13 (Whole Chapter)
  • Proverbs 15:4
    The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
    Proverbs 15:3-5 (in Context) Proverbs 15 (Whole Chapter)
  • Genesis 3:22 - 24  (Genesis 3 - whole chapter)
    And YHVH Elohim said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.  He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."...24. After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life. 
  • Jer 17:7-8 Tree that grows on both sides of the river, yields fruit every month, leaves never wither, water comes from the sanctuary 
  • Revelation 22:1-2
    1Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. Revelation 22 (Whole Chapter)
  • Ez 47:12 “…it shall bring out new fruit according to its months, because their waters they brought came out of the Set-Apart Place: and its fruit shall be for food, and its leaves for medicine.”
  • Revelation 22:14
    "Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.
    Revelation 22:13-15 (in Context) Revelation 22 (Whole Chapter)
  • Revelation 22:19
    And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, El will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
    Revelation 22:18-20 (in Context) Revelation 22 (Whole Chapter)
