An image of a pomegranate (Punica granatum) from JANET TILLER's beautifully illustrated book, First Fruit. The book contains a series of stunning botanical images with accompanying Scriptures.
The accompanying text for this image is from Deuteronomy 8: 6-9:
Observe the commands of the Lord your God, walking in his ways and revering him. For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land - a land with streams and pools of water, with springs flowing in the valleys and the hills; a land with wheat and barley, vines and figs trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; a land where bread will not be scarce and you will lack nothing; a land where the rocks are iron and you can dig copper out of the hills.
First Fruit is available for $35 plus postage via www.firstfruitbook.com. The book is also available at Word Bookstore, Nunawading, in Melbourne.
