The olive tree has been one of the most significant plants mentioned in the books of the Bible, from the Deuterocanonical books and Dead Sea Scrolls to the earliest Greek manuscripts and the New Testament. It is also the most often planted tree during biblical times, owing to the lucrative oil it generates, which can be used to light lamps and is a dietary staple. The olive tree first appears in the Old Testament book Genesis, when the dove brings back an olive branch to Noah, indicating they had found land.
Throughout history, the dove and olive branch have symbolized peace. Jesus Christ also uses the olive tree in many of his parables, as described in the New Testament.
What Is the Significance of Olive Wood?
In the ancient Greek Old Testament, Solomon used olive wood to sculpt two cherubim for the holiest of holies when he built the Temple, God's residence. Because of their central location in God's house, the olive wood sculptures indicate the importance of the olive tree to biblical peoples and authors inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Olive trees are revered in the Holy Land because they are considered immortal. An olive tree nearly two centuries old will sprout a baby tree from its trunk, which can then be planted on its own. As long as the trees are maintained and replanted in this manner, they will continue to survive for generations to come.
