Sermon on Revelation 22:1-6,12-20, for the 7th Sunday of Easter, about the Tree of Life and the river of the water of life in the New Jerusalem. Why does the last chapter of the Bible bring us back to the Tree of Life, recalling the Garden of Eden? How is access to the Tree of Life restored? What does the image of the water of life communicate about Jesus? What is the role of truth and falsehood in relation to access to this Tree of Life?
