Jacob 5 Zenos (Allegory of the Olive Tree) [Illustration]: The Seven Time Periods of The Allegory of the Olive Tree. Jacob 5 (The Allegory of the Olive Tree) [Illustration]: Zenos's Allegory of the Tame and Wild Olive Trees, Jacob 5 [Church Educational System, Book of Mormon Student Manual, Religion 121 and 122, p. For those unfamiliar, Zenos Cars is the outfit started by former Caterham boss Ansar Ali and his engineering partner Mark Edwards. The E10 is the first of them, and was unveiled a few months ago at the Autosport International show in Birmingham (England, not Alabama – or any of the other US states that have a town by that name). The startup has now set up Zenos Cars USA and will begin delivering the E10 to American customers next year. With the distribution channels already established, Zenos has an E11 convertible and E12 coupe in the works based on the same architecture.
Zenos Cars announced today that its range of lightweight high performance sports cars will be sold in the USA market by its partner Zenos Cars USA, with the first model, the Zenos E10 making it into customer hands in early 2015. The Zenos E10 made its first public appearance at the UK's prestigious Autosport International Show in January 2014 and received wide public acclaim and industry plaudits for its innovative E-platform chassis architecture, contemporary design, and unrivalled value for money for its sector leading performance.
The E10 has been designed from the driver out, so simplicity and functionality is the order of the day. Chief Executive of Zenos Cars, Ansar Ali said, on making the announcement of Zenos Cars USA, "We have always hoped the essence of the Zenos brand and its products would sit easily with the US motoring community of "light is right" aficionados.
The E10 will be first sold in a special Launch Edition which includes as standard, a Limited Slip Differential, In-board Bilstein dampers, 4 point racing harness, bespoke Zenos composite seats, quick release steering wheel, Launch Edition Red paint, and more.
Zenos Cars, co-founded by Ansar Ali and Mark Edwards, who previously were senior executives at both Lotus and Caterham Cars, specializes in the design, manufacture, and retail of lightweight razor sharp handling sports cars.
During Ali's and Edward's time successfully leading Caterham through a recession and then taking it into F1, and prior to that their time at Lotus Cars, they have observed increasing vehicle weights, higher entry prices, escalating repair costs and distant customer relationships; all this leading to the needs and wants of the true driving enthusiast being increasingly overlooked.
The Zenos principle is to design, assemble, and retail high performance, ultra-lightweight and affordable sports cars, courtesy of intelligent vehicle engineering, efficient material technology, the application of 'form from function' design, and the adoption of a direct Customer Intimate sales and marketing approach. Zenos Cars USA has offices on both coasts and intends on being active in community based car events. Reported comments and users are reviewed by Autoblog staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week to determine whether they violate Community Guideline. Whatever the case, the message of Zenos' allegory, along with that of his other writings, seems to have been rejected by a good share of the people of Israel.
There are also ties between Jacob's introduction to the parable of Zenos in Jacob 4 and some of Paul's statements in Romans 11, leading one to believe that they may have had a common source. The fact that a number of Old Testament and other pre-Pauline passages refer to olive and other branches in terms similar to those used by both Paul and Zenos suggests that there may be a common tradition for all of these passages. The Zenos parable is self-contained and represents a logical flow, despite the fact that parts of it resemble various Bible passages attributed to different authors. The variety of these combinations is so complex that he suspects that no two of the texts share all elements with any of the others except with the Zenos parable. What is significant to understand, however, is that Paul was a man of the city, and therefore would be unlikely to understand the intricacies of oleiculture201 Paul then, would not have been able to create the allegory, but simply to repeat an image that was known from alternate sources, sources that either trace to Zenos, or which preceded even Zenos as part of an oral understanding and imagery.
Jesus, for example, likened himself to "the true vine" of which God is "the husbandman" and of which those obedient to Christ are "the branches," bringing forth "much fruit," while the disobedient are withered branches which are burned in the fire (John 15:1-6). Joseph Smith identified the tree of life with the olive tree, when he designated D&C 88 (see preface) as an "olive leaf . Faulconer, though there are significant differences in the context in which Jacob (Jacob 5) and Paul (Romans 11) introduce their references to the olive tree, it is also true that they both do so in response to the same problem, namely, the apostasy of Israel. In both cases the conjunction of these themes is followed by the use of the olive tree metaphor. Most of the botanical and horticultural principles in Jacob 5 are sound and are very important for olive culture.


Even today, outside of olive-growing areas, professional horticulturalists may not fully appreciate some of the unique aspects of olive culture.
With lack of care the fruit would be small and unusable like wild fruit, but it would still have the other desirable genetic characteristics for which it was originally selected and cloned.
Jacob's use of the term "vineyard" to depict a place where olive trees were cultivated is in keeping with ancient Near Eastern terminology and practices.
In the Allegory of Zenos, after the natural branches of the olive-tree fail to produce good fruit, we find that the Lord of the vineyard instructs his servant to "take thou the branches of the wild olive-tree and graft them in, in the stead thereof" (Jacob 5:9). After working at Lotus together and leaving Caterham, Ali and Edwards (which sounds to us more like a boxing match than an engineering duo) struck out on their own and have been developing a line of lightweight sports cars. Pricing will start at $39,500 (*plus destination and taxes), with the Launch Edition encompassing many of the options for $43,750.
The E10 is a road legal, track focused, step-in two seater sports car with Lotus Elise type proportions.
Given the performance of the car, driver and passenger safety is paramount: a fully encased steel safety cell comprising twin roll-hoops and side-impact bars is integrated within the carbon monocoque. The cockpit's ergonomics accommodate persons ranging from 5'1 to 6'3 in height with both driver and passenger seated in bespoke Zenos seats. Pricing for the E10 will start at $39,500 plus domestic shipping and taxes and the E10 Launch Edition will start at $43,750 plus domestic shipping and taxes. So Zenos Cars intends to deliver thrilling, engaging and affordable lightweight sports car experiences that go beyond simply driving a car; the driver, the customer, the enthusiast, the supporter will be at the heart of Zenos. This suggests (1) that the Zenos parable found in Jacob 5 is the original, and (2) that other writers (including Paul) borrowed elements of the Zenos parable and adapted them to suit their own purposes. The most obvious is the vast array of biblical texts from which he would have had to derive these elements.
In addition, the one or two points, according to our interpretation, that represent unusual or anomalous circumstances are necessary enhancements to the message of the allegory. Given the extensive detail about olive culture present in Jacob 5, we must give Zenos much credit for a high degree of horticultural knowledge, which many take for granted. By asserting that the natural fruit became wild, the allegory emphasizes the serious and extensive nature of changes that result from corruption with the House of Israel. And the prophetic figures of the ancient Mediterranean, specifically Greek thinkers and so on, saw this as a sign from God. War and its grim attendants of destruction---rape of the land, siege, and death---were hardly conducive to the cultivation of olive orchards, that require many years of careful husbandry to bring into full production. Some trees now growing in the Holy Land have been producing fruit abundantly for at least four hundred years. Thus, according to Hopkins, the Gentiles [or branches of the wild olive-tree] were expected to take from the Jews [or the branches of the natural olive-tree] the mantle of the Gospel and be grafted into the tree [Christianity] until the last days when .
It should be remembered that the ideas of these Greek philosophers were truly revolutionary. That, for reference, puts the Zenos E10 at about the same level as the entry-level Caterham Seven 280 (which starts at $40,900), but significantly less than even the cheapest Radical (the SR4 Clubsport that starts at $65k).
The E10's driver focus is further accentuated with a visual display directly behind the steering wheel that communicates essential driving information, while in the middle of the dash is another larger screen that will include a choice of road or track data display. Clearly, Paul relied heavily on the writings of earlier prophets to provide evidence for the points he was making. After more than forty years of studying the Bible, Tvedtnes needed the help of a computer to find some of the passages.
It was a miraculous intervention from God, something that contravened the normal laws of olive cultivation and production.
When the dove returned to the ark, it carried an olive leaf in its beak, as though to symbolize that God was again at peace with the earth (see Genesis 8:11).


The second amazing quality of the tree is that as it finally grows old and begins to die, the roots send up a number of new green shoots that, if grafted and pruned, will mature into full-grown olive trees.
There's the very famous poem by Ovid about the olive and the vine--how the vine clings to the olive and grows up around it, etc. The answers to these questions are essential to an understanding of what happened to the early Church as it made the transition from Jewish exclusivity to Gentile dominance.
That was when a major shift in Gentile worship began through the medium of the classical Greek philosophers. They contradicted the prevailing views of the pagan system, and the men who advanced them waged the same battle for religious liberty fought by reformers in every age.
Joe is Managing Director of The Adrenaline Gallery, an integrator and dealer for Russell Savory Engines, Sadev transmissions, Life ECUs, and more. The only regions on the American continents with Mediterranean climates where olive culture is economically feasible are the regions of California, Chile, and Argentina. However, there appear to be three points in the allegory that may strike a modern botanist as unusual. Together they saw the need for a pure sportscar that was both light weight and affordable and Zenos delivers on all of these fronts.
While these anomalies or unusual circumstances are relatively minor from a scientific standpoint, they represent important metaphorical points of the allegory that were apparently necessary to portray Zenos's intended meaning. Thus, while the tree itself may produce fruit for centuries, the root of the tree may go on producing fruit and new trees for millennia. Over the centuries that followed, the distinctive ideas of these men grew into various schools of thought. And it came to pass that the Lord of the vineyard looked and beheld the tree in the which the wild olive branches had been grafted; and it had sprung forth and begun to bear fruit.
Such anomalies are often introduced in allegories, partly to remind the audience that the allegory represents a reality beyond its constituted parts and also to cause the audience to remember the extraordinary powers that impel the depicted events. It is believed that some of the ancient olive trees located in Israel today have come from trees that were ancient during Christ's mortal ministry. The beliefs of those schools were gradually syncretized in the minds of the Greek public so that by the time of Christ, they were viewed by most of the Gentile world as a single monotheistic system of beliefs distinct from the polytheism and pantheism of the older, though still popular, pagan religions. As another example of a similar phenomenon, the parable of the Prodigal Son dramatically begins with the shocking circumstance of a son requesting the distribution of his inheritance while his father is still alive; the Jewish law of Jesus' day, in all likelihood, would not have permitted a son to accelerate his future interest in his father's estate. Although there are not enough resemblances between Greek theology and Judaism to conclude that the philosophers derived very many of their ideas from the Old Testament, there are several similarities. If the green slip of an olive tree is merely planted and allowed to grow, it develops into the wild olive, a bush that grows without control into a tangle of limbs and branches producing only a small, worthless fruit (see Harold N. These similarities ultimately caused the Gentiles to be both attracted to the full truth and the Gospel and confused by the erroneous elements that remained in Hellenism.
To become the productive "tame" olive tree, the main stem of the wild tree must be cut back completely and a branch from a tame olive tree grafted into the stem of the wild one. With careful pruning and cultivating the tree will begin to produce its first fruit in about seven years, but it will not become fully productive for nearly fifteen years. In other words, the olive tree cannot become productive by itself; it requires grafting by the husbandman to bring it into production. Throughout its history Israel has demonstrated the remarkable aptness characterized by the symbol of the olive tree.
When they gave themselves to their God for pruning and grafting the Israelites prospered and bore much fruit, but when they turned from Christ, the Master of the vineyard, and sought to become their own source of life and sustenance they became wild and unfruitful.
