The Trees

March 20: Judges 9:7-15
I like the talking trees parable in Judges 9:7-15, which gets explained in Judges 9:16-20. It reminds me of the talking trees from "The Wizard of Oz" and "The Lord of the Rings". The band Rush also has a song called 'The Trees" which has talking trees in it. I wonder if any of these where influenced by this parable.

Well, the author of the book "Lord of the Rings" was Christian. He, along with C.S. Lewis would take long walks and chat about the Bible so basically, they wrote epic tales based on some stories from the Bible. I'm not so sure about the song from "Rush" and "The Wizard of Oz". I'm going to ask my friend about the Rush song because he would know.
