GARDENS ARE THE CONTEXT FOR MANY EVENTS IN THE BIBLE. Backdrops to temptation, pain, suffering, joy and celebration, they are places of intimate encounters with God.

Adam and Eve's temptation to sin is in the Garden of Eden. Gethsemane is the place Jesus prays alone in his struggle.

And as for the final garden, God promises us the 'ultimate', paradise.
