"The Bible is full of references to trees and plants. Jesus himself frequently used flowers and fruits to illustrate his teaching. But which flower is meant by 'lily of the field'? Why did the Hebrews use the hissop plant to daub their lintels? What role did the olive tree and its fruit play in the ancient economy? This book sets out to answer these and many other questions. In recent years much scientific and archaeological research has been devoted to the botany of Bible lands, and many new and exciting facts discovered. Nigel Hepper has distilled the expertise of a long career at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and much information not readily available to the general reader, in this new and comprehensive study of the plants, flowers, trees and vegetables of Bible lands. The Baker Encyclopedia of Bible Plants will help the Bible reader to: understand the many Bible references to plants; grasp the meaning of Old Testament imagery; be involved with the everyday examples Jesus used in his teaching; find meaning in the symbolism of art which used flowers and plants; be informed about land use, misuse and conservation [how plants affected the culture, lifestyle and agriculture reflected in Scripture]."--Jacket.
