The Two Trees
The first book of the Bible sets forth an explanation of what lies behind mankind's experience with evil—sin, disease, and death —and what to do about it. In the second chapter of Genesis the writer or compiler uses the illustration of two trees. Evidently, one of these—the tree of life—has to do with the spiritual facts of creation, so clearly stated in the first chapter and summed up in this profound statement: "God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." To eat of this tree is to prove the eternality of Life.
The other—the tree of knowledge of good and evil—is the one Adam was commanded not to eat of, "for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Gen. 2:17). This command is, of course, continuous and so applies to us today.
