Trees of the Bible

Updated on August 13, 2011

Did You Know?

Apparently there are approximately 100 mentions of plants and trees in the Bible.

The tree that comes to mind more than others is the Olive tree because it is mentioned frequently.

From Bible times to today, the Olive tree is seen to be growing close to the airport in Tel Aviv in Israel. The Olive tree is synonymous with the Holy Land as the extensive plantations reveal.

The Olive tree is not in my opinion a pretty tree, being stocky and twisted but this evergreen tree is highly valued for the fruit it produces containing oils. This hardy tree can live for centuries and more trees can be grown from just a shoot.

For the Israelites, the olive oil was a trading commodity and part of their staple diet.

Reference to the olive tree can be read in Genesis 8:11. This is evidence of it’s time of origin.

Papyrus was used to pen Bible writings on, so useful was the papyrus plant! Due to the fact that it was perishable, the original Bible writings no longer exist.

The Almond tree was another tree of value and so were plants such as Flax for use in making linen.

Caper, Berry and Date Palms are also made mention of and the list goes on.

I hope you have enjoyed this snippet of information

      The topic grabbed me right away and think it is a superb idea for an article, but think it needs a little more to make it truly engaging.

      Just my two cents, but hopefully helpful.
