John 1:48-49 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. 



Luke 19:1 to 5

 And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him; for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.


Luke 23:31 to 32 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry? And there were also tow other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. And when they were come to the place which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.


And now that I can full see

The value of the Cross at Calvary

Only through God’s loving grace

A tree of life I now can face


Beyond, beneath and in-between

The Lord Jesus

Different views are seen


Beyond the tree of visibility, Nathaniel sees a presence

Beneath the tree where Zacchaeus  climbed

The Lord’s flowing essence


And in between two malefactors

In the midst it stood

The finished work,

The tree of life, to believe if we would
