What is the Tree of Life, and will we get to eat from it some day?

M.D

The tree of life bears 12 manner of fruits and produces them monthly. When Adam and Eve sinned by partaking of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:17), God drove them out of the Garden of Eden to keep them from eating the fruit of the tree of life lest they would eat and live eternally in their sinful state.

The tree of life will appear again in the Holy City (Revelation 22:2). Undoubtedly this tree plays a part in promoting our endless existence, for even the leaves contain healing or health for the nations living under, or in the light of, the city. The word “health” is the proper translation, not healing. Since there is no sorrow, sickness, or pain, healing is unnecessary.
