Look On The Tree...

Do You See It?

On the trunk of the tree....
I took this picture at the Creation Museum as many people walked by and didn't even see it...

Frank from Troy's Creation House was our tour guide and pointed it out...
This wonderfully captures the image of Christ that has been sculpted into the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The scene includes Adam & Eve standing by a beautiful waterfall, the serpent hanging in the tree, and the image of Christ on the cross. He developed a little rhyme to describe what I see as the message of that exhibit: Paradise Found, Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained cause Christ went to the cross. Paradise Found is represented by Adam & Eve; Paradise Lost by the serpent in the tree; and Paradise Regained by the image of Christ on the cross.

That is so cool. I wondered if you were talking about the snake, but this is really neat!

Very cool! I didn't look that closely, lol!

i still don't see it! :( like one of those "magic eye" puzzles i never could get! Ha!

But, what a great little rhyme. Would be great for teaching little ones about Christ, easy for them to remember and could even be sung to a little tune.

I had to enlarge the picture and really study it before I could see Jesus on it. I never did see Adam and Eve.
