Tree of Life...

Did YOU know that the Tree of Life bares 12 DIFFERENT fruits?
Did you know that the leaves are used for healing?

Revelations 22:2
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations?

Awesome. I just always picture the white fruit dangling. This is such a great piece of information. Does it have to do with the 12 tribes I wonder?

GOOD question... I have NO idea! Just studying for my institute lesson and learned this!

You may have to do a whole post on what you learn because I am also very intrigued. Jan's question is great.
My question is: So there really is a Tree of Life? I always thought it was just in Lehi's dream - only a metaphor.

This is a great topic!

Very interesting. I didn't know this scripture at all. You're full of these deep thoughts these days, huh.
Keep 'em coming. I like thinking on things in this way.
