Bethlehem area, means "House of Green Carpet", the "green carpet" being a reference to the numerous olive trees that grow in the area. Olive oil has been used throughout the ages to anoint kings and Prophets, and it will be used to anoint the King of kings, the Messiah himself, upon his return.
The olive tree is often seen as symbolic of the Resurrection of Christ. An olive tree can be cut down to the ground, seemingly completely gone, but it is not dead. It will in fact grow again, new shoots springing forth from the roots, reaching to the heavens to once again become a symbol of Christian culture. Even the site of the Ascension of Christ in Jerusalem is related to the olive tree, and is known as the Mount of Olives.This is a lovely item to own or to give away as a special gift. A wonderful gift for your beloved ones. Made in Bethlehem from authentic Bethlehem olive wood.
