The tame olive tree in Jacob 5 may represent not only the house of Israel but also each of us personally. Listed in this chart are symbolic elements of the olive tree allegory and possible personal applications of them. While the collective gathering of the house of Israel is of utmost concern, the personal conversion of each of its members may be even more important. Thus Zenos's allegory should be read and applied in terms of individual as well as collective salvation.
