Garden of Eden
Genesis ii. 15. And the Lord God [Jehovah] took the
man, and put him into the garden of Eden, to dress it and
to keep it.
The name Eden, according to Cruden, means pleasure,
delight. In this text Eden stands for the mortal, material
body. God could not put Mind into matter nor infinite
Spirit into finite form to dress it and
keep it, - to make it beautiful or to cause it
to live and grow. Man is God's reflection, needing no
cultivation, but ever beautiful and complete.
