Right at the outset, it may seem to you that my title has posed an odd question. And admittedly it is odd, but that doesn’t make it any less important. If the Christian gospel is aimed at the restoration of Eden, then a few reflections on the nature of Eden would seem to be appropriate, and even fruitful. The Scriptures begin with one tree of life in the middle of one Garden (Gen. 2:9), but end with trees of life up and down both sides of the river (Rev. 22:2). Where we came from is relevant to where we are going—and how we should behave along the way.
