Tree of Life

The tree of life is described in the Book of Revelation
as having curing properties: "the angel showed me
the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down
the middle of the great street of the city. On each side
of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops
of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves
of the tree are for the healing of the nations."
Revelation 22:1-2
