The Third Tree [Video Sermon]

Passage: Genesis 3:1-7, Revelation 22:1-5, Mark 15:22-39

In the opening and closings chapters of the Bible, we find described the “Tree of Life.” It was in the Garden of Eden, a tree Adam and Eve could eat from and live; and we don’t hear of it again until Revelation, when the New Jerusalem comes down from heaven and it brackets the river of life, bringing healing and wholeness. We live in between these two trees. But there is a third tree, a cross, upon which our Savior Jesus died. That tree of death is what gives us life.
