In Reference to: Growing a Papaya Tree from Seed

Hi Daniel:

Thank you for your comments, and we will do our best to answer your question.

If this is in relation to the papaya you are growing, it really doesn’t apply because this command only applied to when the people entered the promised land, and that was thousands of years ago, so you can eat anything you grow; secondly papaya are technically a plant and not a tree, even if they look like a tree.

If we just look at the Bible passage: the Hebrew refers to the fruit of the uncircumcised which most likely refers to the fruit of the ungodly people who occupied the land before the Hebrews, and as above, this command only seems to apply to then and not now.

We hope this helps.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
