ELAIA (Honors Program)
The Honors Journal of Olivet Nazarene University
The name Olivet comes from Mount Olivet, or the Mount of Olives, a hill outside Jerusalem known in ancient times for its olive groves and which featured prominently in Christ’s life and ministry. Olives have been cultivated for thousands of years and hold rich theological symbolism (the olive branch as a symbol of peace, for instance, or anointing with olive oil). In selecting a name for this journal, we wanted a title that drew upon the symbolism and history in Olivet’s name itself.
ELAIA (el’AYE’ah) is the phonetic spelling of the Greek word for olive. The symbolism is apt in more ways than one: olive trees take years to mature and bear fruit, and the research contained in this journal is likewise the fruit of these students’ years of labor. Like the olive tree, we pray these students continue to grow, cultivate deep roots, and bear the fruits of peace and holiness in all their scholarly endeavors.
