Orthodox Jewish scholarship reveals that the Garden of Eden, location of God's creation of man, is actually the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and it dates back 5771 years ago which coincides with the Jewish new year 5771.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
On Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year, attention is drawn to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the site of the Garden of Eden, and the part that it plays in the future according to Bible prophecy.
Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year, will be celebrated by the Jewish people around the world with family gatherings, dipping apples into honey, wishing for a sweet new year ahead, and the casting of bread into a body of moving water. The casting of bread into the body of water is in connection with Micah 7:19 where the Lord tells the Jewish people that their sins will be in the depths of the deepest sea. The Jewish high holy day also marks the creation of man in the Garden of Eden 5771 years ago. Orthodox Jewish scholarship reveals that the Garden of Eden is the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
The ancient Jewish prophets foretold how the Garden of Eden will play into the end of times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy. The prophet Isaiah, when speaking on the kingdom to come, said that the Lord will make Zion, or the city of Jerusalem, the Garden of Eden in that kingdom (Isaiah 51:3). Ezekiel, writing about the land that God has promised the Jews in Ezekiel 36:35, said that the desolate land will be the Garden of Eden. Another prophet, Joel, wrote about a large militia, a military force, that will travel to the Garden of Eden, the city of Jerusalem, in an effort to destroy the Jewish people (Joel 2:2-3).
The Jewish new year, Rosh Hashana, is indeed a reminder that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
