This Advent, we’re taking a page from one of the key symbols of Christmas—the tree—tracing this theme through the story of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. The Bible actually compares humans to trees a lot! In fact, aside from God and humans, trees are mentioned more in the Bible than any other living thing. You’d be hard-pressed to find a major story of the Bible that doesn’t have a tree present in some form, whether that be mention of a seed, branch, fruit, stump, root, vine, or some other tree-related word. And when Jesus taught about the kingdom of God, trees, seeds, and fruit were his go-to metaphors. So, we'll break down how trees are used in the Bible, stopping at some key points along the way.
