" And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil."
" וַיַּצְמַח יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים, מִן-הָאֲדָמָה, כָּל-עֵץ נֶחְמָד לְמַרְאֶה, וְטוֹב לְמַאֲכָל--וְעֵץ הַחַיִּים, בְּתוֹךְ הַגָּן, וְעֵץ, הַדַּעַת טוֹב וָרָע."
The Tree of life (Hebrew: עץ החיים) is a tree, according to the Book of Genesis, that was planted in the middle of the Garden of Eden.
The tree of life is mentioned in Genesis but there are also many references to the tree in the Book of Proverbs. The Midrash states that the Torah is the Tree Of Life.
According to the Bible, the fruits of the Tree Of Life give everlasting life meaning immortality.
But there was another tree in the Garden: the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
G-d had forbidden Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge. However, the snake tempts Eve to eat the fruit with the promise of knowledge, and both Adam and Eve eat from the tree.
According to Genesis 3:22, after eating from the Tree of Knowledge, Adam and Eve were exiled from the Garden of Eden, to prevent them from eating from the Tree of Life and gain immortality.
Many scholars believe that the Tree Of Life and the Tree of Knowledge are actually the same tree, with two different names.
