A. Jesus revealed truths about the Garden of Eden in His Parables 

In the previous post I wrote that Prophet Isaiah depicted the Garden of Eden in a parable about Israel, “the vineyard of the Lord”.  Jesus gave four revealing parables about gardens that give us truths about the Garden of  Eden or the Garden of the Lord.

Key to these parables:

  • God is the gardener
  • The garden, field or vineyard refers to the Garden of Eden and to Adam and Eve
  • Seed is the Word of God
  • The enemy is satan
  • Tares = false doctrine
  • Reapers are the angels
  • Outer darkness = exile to geographic regions outside of  Eden, hell, eternal death.

B. The Parables in which Jesus gave the revelations about the Garden of the Lord

1. The Parable of the Sower

… depicts the condition of Adam and Eve’s heart towards God; Satan’s acitivity in undermining God’s teaching and  Adam and  Eve’s responses (Matthew 13: 1 – 23).

2. The parable of the enemy who sowed weeds among the wheat

… refers to Satan teaching Adam and  Eve false doctrine in the church of satan (Matthew 13: 24 – 30)

3.  Jesus also made direct reference to  Prophet Isaiah’s Parable of the Vineyard (Matthew 21: 33 – 42)

Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

Keys to the parable:

  • householder  –master of the house, homeowner/goodman of the house, God
  • husbandmen – farmers, Adam and Eve.

Jesus portrayed the members of the God family as the Landlords of Earth Property who rented the Garden of Eden to Adam and Eve. They were allowed to manage the property and to grow crops.

However, the Key Revelation given by Lord Jesus is that there was a time span between

Adam and Eve’s rebellion and the judgment of God.

More to come.  Blessings, peace and angelic prosperity.
