With the cursing of the fig tree in Mark 11, Jesus taught His disciples a lesson about fruitfulness. Looking for fruit, Jesus found nothing but leaves, and so He performed a miracle of destruction, causing the tree to wither overnight. This, Alistair Begg teaches, was an enacted parable, a prophetic symbol of the coming destruction of the temple and imminent judgment upon Israel. The barren fig tree represented the same religious legalism that still promises satisfaction yet leaves us spiritually hungry.
