Trees are mentioned throughout the Bible:
- The dove returned to Noah with an Olive branch.
- The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, which God advised Adam against partaking of. After eating the fruit of the tree, Adam and Eve became aware, and ashamed of their nakedness, and aware of sin, and where expelled from Eden.
- The tree, sometimes said to be dogwood, which Christ was crucified upon.
- The Tree of Life, the fruit of which grants immortality. Humanity can only partake of the tree of life after the death and Resurection of Christ, provided they have accepted Christ as the Son of God and their Savior.
In Jewish mysticism, "The Tree of Life, or Etz haChayim, is a mystical symbol used in the Kabbalah of esoteric Judaism to describe the path to God and the manner in which He created the world ex nihilo (out of nothing). The Kabbalists developed this concept into a full model of reality, using the tree to depict a map of creation."
