Originating from Persia (now Iran), the pomegranate is one of the oldest fruits known to man. It was highly esteemed by the Israelites. Figures of the pomegranate where carved into the tops of the pillars in Solomon’s temple, and worked representations of this fruit ornamented the hem of the robe of the High Priest. Jewish tradition teaches that the pomegranate is a symbol for righteousness, because it is said to have 613 seeds which corresponds with the 613 mitzvot or commandments of the Torah.
Another interesting fact, Pomegranate is one of the seven species the spies brought back from the Promised Land, showing how fertile it was. Pomegranate also speaks of God's favor exhibited in fruitfulness and abundance. The oil exhibits a delightfully fruity aroma.
Nu 13:23 "They came to the valley of Eshkol, and cut down from there a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bore it on a staff between two; they brought also of the pomegranates, and of the figs."
