Richard Rogers's avatar Richard Rogers

Origin portrays the two trees from the garden of Eden, The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, which bore the forbidden fruit, (the red tree.) And The Tree of Life, mentioned both in Genesis and Revelation, (the green tree.) This entry tells the story of the fall of man, when sin entered the world, and the plan of God's grace, from Genesis to Revelation. The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is complete with a single forbidden fruit and the sly serpent. The red leaves represent the blood of Christ, shed for the atonement of sin. The Tree of Life has twelve kinds of fruit, (Revelation 22:2.) The two doves, represents the two angels, with flaming swords, sent to guard the Tree of Life, (Genesis 3:24.)
