Whoa! Whoa! @stillness,

This is Bible Trivia, NOT Bible Discussion Forum......:unsure::giggle:

We simply ask questions that are plainly and easily answered in the Bible scriptures, NOTHING that requires "interpretation" of the scriptures.

Our questions are just to cause each other to go back to our Bibles and search the scriptures..........we might actually read our Bibles more and find them and each other enjoyable.

After someone answers a question they are free to give any insight or their personal thoughts about the scripture BUT, the answers HAVE TO BE FOUND IN THE BIBLE.

Here's an example of an ACCEPTABLE Question:

Q: How many disciples did Yeshua/Jesus have?

A: 12

Here's an example of a NOT ACCEPTABLE Question:

Q: Why did Yeshua/Jesus choose 12 disciples and not 22?

The answer to this question is NOT in the Bible, although it is very interesting.

So, if you have insight about why 12 and not 22, then ask the ACCEPTABLE question first and then feel free to give your insight about why 12 and not 22 disciples.

Please keep playing Bible Trivia with us, just be sure to ask ACCEPTABLE questions. All are welcome and encouraged to play!!! :love:(y)
You mean 12 Appostles? As there were many more disciples, at one time 72 were sent. But yes that may have been the wrong question to bring up.
12 appostles, 12 diferant personalities, 12 tribes, 12,000×12 in the Government of God, 12 planets according to Joseph who saw 11 and the sun and moon bow down to Him. One may be the asteroid belt. Just as the tribe of Benjamen had rebelled, and an apostle betrayed the Lord. Replaced by Paul from the tribe of benjamen.

A disciple is one who is learning from a teacher a apostle is one who is teaching the learnt from the teacher to others, messager, 12 disciples to 11 disciples back to 12 apostle with Matthias

When Jesus was sold/betrayed, Judas received 30 pieces of silver.

Bible trivia question: what is the significance of 30 pieces of silver?
Hello Magenta,

Interesting question......:unsure:

So, is the answer that the 30 pieces of silver that Judas received for betraying Yeshua/Jesus Christ were significant that it fulfilled what Jeremiah the prophet had spoken and that the silver coins were cast to the potter in the house of the Lord which describes what Judas also would do with the 30 pieces of silver..... cast the coins at the feet of the Pharisees in the house of the Lord and they would buy the potter's field?

Matthew 27:4-7 King James Version (KJV)
4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in.



Matthew 27:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;

Zechariah 11:12-13 King James Version (KJV)
12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

13 And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.

I cannot find a verse in the Bible that plainly says Yeshua/Jesus is the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden.

Please share your answer with us from the Bible. It needs to be a Bible verse that says it plainly.
Okay some 6 Months ago or so l was doing a study in the garden of Eden. I don't recall what started the study but this i found, and thought it was amazing!

Genesis 3:22, ...and God said, behold, the man has become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:....

Sometime later i end up in John ch 6, where Jesus is speaking of Himself as the living 🍞 bread; ie His flesh:...in vs 51 ....he shall eat and live for ever...

So i leave this for you to judge; there seems to be no mistake without saying the actual phrase the'tree of life', that He's using the living bread (His flesh), is fruit of that 🌲 tree that one may eat and live for ever!?

So is Christ Jesus the tree of Life in the garden of Eden, that one may eat of His fruit (His flesh and blood) ...and live for ever...

Is it enough for God to say in the scriptures, to eat of the tree of Life and live for ever; and Jesus to say in the scriptures, eat of my flesh and blood and live for ever??

While those things are true, it is not what I had in mind :unsure::)

I was going to mention in the lead up, that Joseph was sold for 20 pieces of silver...

Because it is the actual amount I am asking the significance of ;):D

So this is both a question and an inquiry into your post back to me!

1) is the tree of life Christ Jesus?
According to the scriptures

2) Is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil the serpent?

I wasn't asking a question with my statement about the serpent i was answering her question about the forbidden fruit in a question form!!
Anyhow i did not mean for it to be a question for your thread to be answered but to be pondered!
But TKS none the less!!
In responce to references of Jesus being the Tree of Life, verses that point to Him: "Wisdom is a Tree of Life." "Christ is made to us wisdom from God."
"Hope difered maked the heart sick but the desire fulfilled is a Tree of Life." Why desire fulfilled is refered as the Tree of Life, another verse explains, "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will fulfil the desire of your heart."
As for the tree of knowllege of good and evil, "We aĺl have knowlege, knowlege puffs up but Love builds up." We have knowlege in the mind of the flesh. In the top center of the brain there is a small brain called the reptilian brain. Research has evidence that people who are in drug adiction are traped in this reptillian brain: where people become full of themselves and dont have a life.
