is of an Olive Tree growing in the Cardo of the Old City
Jerusalem. If you look carefully, you can faintly see
the menorah in the background courtyard but it is the
Olive Tree that is the focal point.
being artistically beautiful this layout speaks something
spiritual to me about the Olive Tree (as in the olive
tree of Romans 11:17.) The natural branches that are being
grafted back into “their own olive tree” which
is symbolic of the planting of God in faith that was broken
off in unbelief so God could provide a way “wild
branches,” the Gentiles to be grafted in to this
planting in faith.
can’t even fully verbalize it yet, but this actual,
natural olive tree in the Cardo is a symbolic living representation
of the growing young Israeli Jewish Body of Messiah.
location—in the Cardo of the Old City Jerusalem—speaks
of these Messianic believers as being the very heartbeat
of God for the Jewish people.
