Most of the people living during Jacob's time likely had no knowledge or experience with olive horticulture. Olive trees are not native to the Americas, and it is believed they were first brought to the Americas by Spanish colonists in the 16th century. IF THIS IS CORRECT, how could Jacob expect his people to understand Zenos' allegory of olive trees about which they had no knowledge or experience?
