The Garden of Eden

The exact location of the Garden of Eden is impossible to know for certainty. The Bible does reveal that a river flowed out of the garden and was divided into four branches. The four branches are: the Tigris, Euphrates, Pishon, and Gihon. In the world today the Tigris and Euphrates rivers flow from the Persian Gulf up and through the countries of Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. The other two branches, the Pishon, and Gihon are a mystery. Most scholars believe that the Garden of Eden was located somewhere near the Persian Gulf. No trace has ever been found, some believe that it died when man was expelled, others believe that it was swept away in the great flood of Noah. Jesus believed in the Garden of Eden, and taught that Adam and Eve were two literal people that existed in history. Paul the Apostle also believed in the Garden of Eden and taught that the serpent deceived the woman and not the man.
