Jerusalem and the Garden of Eden
Run time: 63 minutes
By Lawrence Stager, Harvard University
Lawrence Stager discusses biblical descriptions of several gardens, including the Garden of Eden. A description in the Book of Ezekiel locates the Garden of Eden close to Jerusalem. Taking his cue from Ezekiel, Stager postulates that the garden in the Valley of Kidron might be Eden. He tests this theory against passages in the Psalms, the Song of Songs and Genesis.
