Tree of Abraham

According to one tradition it is believed that Abraham lived and met with angels under a tree also known as the ‘Oak of Mamre’. It is a little bit of mystery to the exact identity of the tree as it is not certain exactly whether the tree was an oak. The Turpentine Tree is thought to be the likeliest species. Another belief says that the Tree of Abraham grew from a sacred staff carried by one of the angels on his visitation. Whichever belief may be accurate, the tree is said to have been created at the beginning of time and that it still exists on the Mount of Mamre (Mambre).
