wheat and tares

by Andrea Elizabeth

In St. Nicholai’s chapter, “The Plants as Symbols”, almost all the plants, like trees, lillies, olive trees, thorns, and thistles symbolize either righteous or unrighteous people. The vine is Christ and seeds are His word. While minerals symbolize virtues and Christ Himself, I find it curious that plants can point to people. These reviews are mixed so I can’t just blissfully observe with wonder and awe.
