Tree of Life – Group Study

I was reading in Genesis –  and this scripture that we have all read a bazillion times –  got my curiosity. I have not researched it one little bit. It is curious and I thought it would be fun to investigate together, whoever is willing and I hope you all are.

The scrip – Genesis 3:22 And Jehovah God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever-

Is this scripture telling us there was some kind of power in that tree? Is this a tree differently from those we have here on earth now? Or, if Adam and Eve were to eat from that tree and live forever, just as is written, would they live forever in sin? How does this come together for you?

I also want to consider-

Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches. To him that overcometh, to him will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God.

And – Revelation 22:1-2 And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb,in the midst of the street thereof. And on this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve manner of fruits, yielding its fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

The only requirements are that you are respectful of others, and I know you will be, and that you bring some scrips to back up your thinking. Don’t be shy now.

Ok. Who wants to kick this around with me? I would love the company!
