Jesus did not have a body before he was born in Bethlehem. The Father and the Holy Spirit do not have a body. “God is spirit” (John 4:24). While Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary some 2,000 years ago, that was not the beginning of his existence. Jesus once told a group of Jews: “Before Abraham was born, I Am!” (John 8:58) On the night before he went to the cross, Jesus prayed to his heavenly Father: “And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began” (John 17:5). The God of Israel in the Old Testament is the Triune God: Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit. The writer to the Hebrews answers your last question: “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe” (Hebrews 1:1-2). How thankful we can be that in the Bible God answers these questions about our Savior.
We hear of that tree last in Genesis 3:24. If God did not remove that tree prior to the flood in Noah’s day, it would have been destroyed then. Interestingly enough, the tree of life reappears in a figurative sense in the last book of the Bible (Revelation 22:2). Heaven is described in a way in which we come full circle from Genesis 3; Paradise is restored! What a loving God we have.
