About "The King Priest"
Pomegranates - The Fruit of Jesus' sacrifice. When cut open it exudes RED Juice. Its skin is Purplish in color, suggestive of God Manifestation and royalty. It was prominent on the hem of the Priest's garments and on the pillars in Solomon's temple, thus representing the King-Priest of the Kingdom age. It has a white membrane (righteousness), cut through; it has 12 sections and pearl white seeds (Isa 53:10) with red fluid.
The 613 seeds found within the pomegranate represent the 613 commandments in 1st five books of the Old Testament, which is "the law". We know that the 613 commandments are the law. The law condemns us, but Jesus came to fulfill the law and now we live under grace by His work on the cross.
So it's interesting to think that if the Tree of Good and Evil was a pomegranate tree and that they ate a pomegranate (forbidden fruit) that by eating, sin was revealed. The law reveals "good and evil", if we didn't have the law, we wouldn't know sin, or that we were breaking the law. So by partaking in the "fruit of the law" their eyes were opened and "they knew they were naked." And by Scripture we know that the knowledge of good and evil
is indeed the law itself.
The Romans, who introduced the tree from Carthage, gave it the name punicum malum, the Carthaginian apple; and our name pomegranate is derived from the Latin [0x1]grained apple,[0x1] . From the striking appearance of the bright pink pips, packed in compartments separated by a white membrane, shining like rubies, and beautifully arranged. .
