In the book of Genesis, God places the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the middle of the Garden of Eden, where the tree of life stands as a symbol of God's life-giving presence and the fullness of eternal life available in God.
It was disobedience of Adam and Eve, who had been told by God not to eat of the tree (Genesis 2:17), that caused disorder in the creation, thus humanity inherited sin and guilt from Adam and Eve's sin.
When Jesus—the Messiah—came, he demonstrated an unswerving reliance on God and perfect obedience to him. That is to say, he did what the first humans failed to do in choosing to eat from the other tree in the garden and define good and evil for themselves.
It is clear from the Bible that the Garden of Eden has an exact location, and it is not just a mythical location. The location is associated with four rivers that are mentioned in the biblical text. These are the Euphrates, Tigris (Hiddekel), Pison, and Gihon. The Tigris and Euphrates are two well-known rivers that still flow through Iraq today. In the bible, they are said to have flowed through Assyria, namely today’s Iraq
It’s quite possible and highly likely that the flood changed the makeup of the earth. This could have affected the very location of the Tigris and Euphrates, meaning they may be in different locations than they were before the flood. This change has made it difficult for scholars, historians, and archeologists to know exactly where the Garden of Eden is.
