History of the olive tree
Olive trees have been cultivated on holy land since ancient times. Historians and archaeologists believe that the first olive groves were planted around 4000 B.C.E.
The olive tree plays a significant role in the daily life of the people of the holy land. From the tree they get olives, from the olives they get their olive oil and from the left mass they get their soap. The timber makes the work of the artists, the farmers get the chips to keep their walls clean and everyone else gets the wood burned in the cold desert.
The olive tree has both religious and sentimental significance for all nations and all religions, especially Judaism and Christianity. In the Old Testament, religious leaders and prophets had anointed them with olive oil. It was also used to light lamps in the Jerusalem temple.
In the New Testament, Jesus was called anointed (the Messiah). The early Christians were called Nozreem or Massehe, which in Arabic and Arabic means “anointed with olive oil”. Jesus was arrested on Olive Hill and ascended from there to heaven after his resurrection.
Since Noah, the branches of the olive tree have been a symbol of peace. As the years of war began in the Holy Land, farmers continued to plant olive trees to stay in touch with the land despite the fighting.
For the rest of us, the olive tree is a symbol of peace, beauty, longevity and healing. Artists in Bethlehem and Jerusalem are well aware of the importance of the olive tree and take care of the finer works of these sacred trees. We are proud to offer the finest examples of olive trees straight from Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
