The Two Trees in Eden

Some observations while reading through the bible again. I did not notice this before.

Genesis 2:15-17 The Lord God took the man and placed him in the garden of Eden to work it and watch over it. And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree of the garden, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die.

First, besides being the first gardener of the human race, Adam was charged to watch over Eden. There is a responsibility not just being a gardener, but to guard over Eden. (In which the responsibility of it after the fall was given to an angel?).

Second, there were TWO Trees – The tree of the knowledge of good and evil and the tree of LIFE! Why did the tree of life was not mentioned and included in the warning to Adam not to eat of the TREE OF LIFE too!? I mean, yea, having eternal life triumphs over Knowledge?

Third, if the tree of life was not explicitly forbidden, then Adam would have eaten of the fruits every day? But because of Sin that entered, Death entered into the human race through Adam, but Christ as the Second Adam, was given the TREE OF LIFE, and by faith, we sort of being the spiritual inheritance of the TREE of LIFE and its fruits?
