When a child grows up and is given the chance to play with a garden in their own backyard, it is very tempting to do so.
It is easy to see why a child would want to do this.
A garden is a place where you can gather and enjoy a healthy food source, play, and grow.
However, there are two major reasons why this is not the case for the Bible.
First, the Garden of Eden is a metaphor for the Garden, and God Himself.
Second, the Bible speaks about the Fall of Adam and Eve, as well as other characters.
When we look at the Garden we see that the Creator of the world, the God of heaven, had created Adam and the Garden.
In the Garden the animals, plants, and animals and their creatures were all created by God Himself to serve His purpose.
We know that this is the meaning of the Garden: the Garden is where He gives life.
In other words, the creation of life was the result of His creative act of creation, as it was in the Garden at Eden.
When Adam and his family left the Garden they did not have a Garden, they did have a life.
Adam had a garden, but He did not need a Garden to enjoy a life of food and recreation.
God provided for all life in the garden, and the Bible makes no distinction between a Garden and a life outside the Garden (Genesis 3:17-18).
But if Adam and Noah did not go to the Garden to play, they would have needed a Garden.
God would have had no reason to create them outside the garden.
Therefore, the Scriptures speak of the Fall and the Fall was a consequence of Adam’s disobedience, not of a Garden’s existence.
Why do some Christians believe that God did create the Garden?
In his book The Fall and Redemption, Richard Carrier notes that “The Garden of Adam is a literal garden, not just a metaphor.
There was an actual garden in Eden, and that garden was Adam’s garden.”
According to Carrier, “The garden is in the New Testament, but the Garden in the Old Testament is an allegorical garden.”
That is, it refers to the garden of Eden.
In fact, the Biblical Garden in Genesis 3:1-8 was an allegory for the garden in Genesis 1:1.
The Garden in this passage is a garden of the Holy of Holies.
It was the place of recreation, where Adam and those who were with him enjoyed the fruits of the garden and played in the water of the waterless Eden (Gen. 3:2).
The Garden of the New Covenant is a symbolic garden that symbolizes the Garden that God provided to Adam and all those who live in the Holy City of the Lord (Gen 3:5-7).
The New Covenant Garden is a representation of the original Garden that Adam and His family enjoyed in Eden.
Therefore the Garden was created in the Fall.
But what does that mean?
What is the difference between a literal and allegorical Garden?
The Bible does not make distinctions between literal and symbolic Garden.
The literal Garden is the Garden which Adam and Aaron visited.
The allegorical, symbolic Garden is that garden that Adam visited, the New City of God, and other garden places.
The New City is a symbol for the Church, the family, and society.
Therefore it is a Garden in a literal sense.
In contrast, the allegorical is a spiritual garden, a place of worship and community, the sanctuary of God.
Therefore a literal Garden does not have allegorical meaning.
As with many things in the Bible, there is a difference between the literal and the allegory.
The Bible makes it clear that Adam had to go to a literal (literal meaning) Garden to create the garden he saw in the book of Genesis.
The Genesis account of Adam does not state that Adam was to have a literal, allegorical and symbolic garden.
Instead, it says that Adam must have visited the Garden on Mount Sinai, which is where the Garden Garden is located.
The word “garden” is used to describe what we know as the Garden; but it also means the place where God has a garden.
The metaphor of the allegorially Garden is not found in the Hebrew Scriptures.
It can be found in some other Old Testament passages, including Psalms 139:1, where the word “Garden” appears as the name of a place or tree.
When the Jews are asked to compare the Garden with the Garden described in the Torah, they often say that the literal Garden would have a higher significance.
They also point out that the Garden Eden was a symbolic Garden that the Lord God created.
The Old Testament does not refer to the literal, symbolic garden as the literal Eden.
The Book of Genesis does.
When Genesis describes the Garden as a symbol of the Church and a symbol that God created a symbolic and literal Garden in Eden for His people, then the Garden can be said to be symbolic of the literal garden in the Scriptures
