Biblical History Center Part 3 of 3: Plants and Herbs
Today’s post concludes the 3-part blog post on my visit to The Biblical History Center in LaGrange, Georgia. As we’d strolled the archaeological gardens of the Biblical History Center, I noticed scriptural placards in front of several plants and herbs. Since my sister-in-law recently switched to a functional medicine doctor and is researching ways to be more targeted in using plants and herbs in her diet to take a more natural approach to her health, I took a stroll back through the gardens with the purpose of exploring what was planted there to note any scriptural references to the plants in the garden so that I could share them with her. Some had scriptures – others didn’t, but I found it all so fascinating to see the scripture-based plants. As she sat at her lake house posting on Facebook that she was exploring her new herbal medicine book, I was out admiring the plants that she was reading about on her porch swing that same day.
I’ve placed the Bible verses under each picture with a scriptural reference for today’s post.
If these plants interest you, there are many more links to exploring the spiritual symbolism and uses of plants in the Bible.
