Reference: Bush


The 'burning bush' has traditionally been supposed to be a kind of bramble (Rubus), of which Palestine has several varieties, but one of the thorny shrubs of Sinai of the acacia family would seem more probable. Sacred bushes and trees are common in Palestine and Arabia. 'In (or at) the bush' in Mt 12:26; Lu 20:37 = the passage dealing with the burning bush (RV 'in the place concerning the bush').

E. W. G. Masterman.
