Jewish legend says that the phoenix was the bird that refrained from eating the forbidden fruit of paradise, then set itself on fire but rose from the ashes three days later. The Phoenix bird was also considered to be the representation of the rising and setting of the sun. However, later on it was widely accepted as the symbol of resurrection of life.
