Plants of The Bible (Pomegranate)

Pomegranate is a very popular fruit all over North East Africa and the Middle East. Though it can’t be proven definitely, the fruit of the “Tree of Knowledge” mentioned in the biblical history of creation most probably was meant to be a pomegranate – though most Westerners would hardly believe it, it’s nowhere said to be an apple!

The pomegranate adorned the luxurious robe of the High Priest in lovely brilliant colors. Solomon gave intricate instructions about how the robes were to be made. He also gave detailed instructions about the construction of the Temple, and pomegranates were featured prominently in various parts of this magnificent structure. These references can be found in 2 Chronicles 3 and 4.
