In case you were wondering about the Greek, the answer is that how these two phrases function is an interpretation issue, not a Greek grammar question. The Greek text will not answer such questions. The answers to how they each function is determined by the context each appears in. 

Greek can limit your options as to what the text 'says.' But what it 'means' is not in the domain of grammar and syntax.

We have in Gn 2:9 the first, within the Bible, "xylos tes zoés" (the tree of
the life) (God puts in the Garden).
And we have in Rev 22:19 the last, within the Bible, "xylos tes zoés" (the
tree of the life).

1. Are these two trees quite the same thing?
2. Are there any differences between them?
3. If there are, which are the main differences?
