Were Two Trees In The Garden
|Both were cut down in
prime of life.
One is adorned with lights, the other with Christ, The Light of the world.
At the foot of the one are temporary gifts, at the foot of the other, eternal.
These gifts are both given in love, each requiring a sacrifice. Here the comparison ends.
God so loved the world
that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall
perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
May we all give thanks to God for His indescribable GIFT ! (2 Cor 9:15)
|"Since it was through a tree that we lost the Logos in paradise, it was through a tree again that the Logos was made manifest to all when he showed in himself the length, the height, the depth, and the breadth and, as one of the oldest Christians said, he gathered together the two peoples to one God by stretching out both his hands."“Traditions of the Elders” in Irenaeus, Against Heresies V. 36.1, 2; 5.1; 17.4.|
