ACADIA BUSH – 1. A symbol of immortality. 2. If the bush is on fire, it symbolizes Moses and the burning bush.
APPLE (Forbidden fruit) – 1. The apple symbolizes sin. The connection seems to stem from the Latin words malum meaning “apple” and malus meaning “sin.” The similarity of these words probably led to the apple’s connection with the fruit that was eaten by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The eating of the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil brought sin into the world for all humankind. The type of fruit Adam and Eve ate is subject to much speculation among scholars. It is possible that the fruit was unique to the garden and no longer exists. Due to the destruction of the Garden of Eden, we will never know with any certainty what type of fruit it was. 2. If the apple (fruit) is being held in the hand of Jesus (2nd Adam), it represents redemption over the fall.
