The Garden of Eden by Lucas Cranach der Altere

Eden was the location of the Garden of Eden. A river flowed out of Eden to water the Garden and from there it divided into four rivers; the Pishon, the Gihon, the Tigris, and the Euphrates.[1] It was also the location of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil that God told Adam he could not eat of and the Tree of Life.[2] After the Fall, Adam and Eve was driven from the Garden and the Lord God placed the cherubim and a flaming sword to guard the way to the Tree of Life.[3]
