The Fig Tree – Blessed are the Barren
18Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.19And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.20And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!21Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.22And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
This rendition of Jesus Christ in the gospel of Matthew ie the Synoptic Jesus
is having a hissy fit,
and not only that, he was talking to a fig tree
AND IF THAT ISN’T BAD ENOUGH
SUPPOSEDLY HE HAD A REASON
FOR THIS MADNESS
because it had not produced fruit for him to eat
as he expected because he was hungry that particular morning.
If Jesus can feed 5000 men with a few loaves of bread,
why could he not make the fig tree produce fruit for him presently?
IF Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
knows what happens 2000 years in advance,
you would think he would know that that fig tree did not have fruit on it
before he hoped to eat figs from it that morning.
Maybe he fasted for too long and lost his good senses. Sounds like Peter in the book of Acts on his rooftop praying and fasting.
WHY WOULD THE disciples marvel at the withering fig tree?
Like I said, if it were cursed by Jesus wouldn’t they expect it to die?
But, of course, this is rubbish!
Why would the disciples want to have faith enough to curse a fig tree?
It is stupid!
IT makes Jesus look insane and his followers look like stupid idiots,
but very Synoptic!
I’m surprised that this SYNOPTIC Jesus Christ didn’t
But he does eventually because he is Synoptic!
Please read about the Synoptic Source or rather the SS!
12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:13And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.14And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
He comes haply?
Sounds like he was skipping with flowers in his hair.
What did the Synoptic Jesus expect,
if the time of figs was not yet?
Obviously, the fig tree was not ready to bear its fruit!
IF only Simon of Cyrene had been there!
This is mocking Jesus in the gospel of John when he says his time is not yet!
6Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
Jesus Christ did not go around cursing trees!
Jesus Christ had just raised Lazarus who had been dead for four days.
The Jesus that is propagandized in the Synoptic gospels
cursing the fig tree is
and may I add…….
Why in the world would Jesus Christ, the Son of God, waste his time cursing a fig tree?
IN between these verses in the gospel of Mark, Jesus Christ overturns the tables of the money changers in the temple, but actuality Jesus overturned the tables at an earlier time in the Gospel of John soon after the wedding in Cana.
The Synoptics do not include the wedding in Cana, because the Synoptic authors were not there!
I suppose that is what the fig tree curse mock is all about….
the Synoptic Author was jealous that he was not chosen!
The Synoptic writers go to the extreme to make Jesus Christ look like a weirdo,
because He was upset with the money changers
and the degradation of the place of worship
The reason for their extreme ridicule is because
they were the money changers in the place of worship
and they had turned it into a marketplace!
The Synoptic gospels are trying to confuse events and add their inane teaching
to fill-in space because they are full of air
where the true teaching and true miracles are discarded
and replaced with their
19And when even was come, he went out of the city.20And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.21And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.22And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.23For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Here the author of the gospel of Mark is also mocking Peter “calling into remembrance“.
He calls into remembrance the fig tree that was cursed
moments before as in the gospel of Matthew
and a day later in the gospel of Mark.
Which is similar to the contradiction between the
Last Supper in the gospel of John and the Last Supper in the Synoptic Gospels
which are on two different days.
Then Jesus tells Peter to have faith in God because the tree that was cursed is withered away.
This is utterly ridiculous!
(I CERTAINLY WILL NOT HAVE FAITH BECAUSE OF A FIG TREE !!!!!)
and THIS INANE TEACHING OF THE SYNOPTIC AUTHOR OF THE SYNOPTIC JESUS
has a great deal to do with
NOT ONLY IS THIS RIDICULOUS
BUT AN INSULT TO
Here is a site on the internet I found explaining the fig tree curse/miracle. It is at Christian Courier.com, “a place for reasonable faith” and here is their explanation for what occurred,
but not really.
Why Did Jesus “Curse” the Fig Tree?
In this study he argues that the tree was probably not on someone’s property so therefore Jesus had the right to pronounce judgement upon a free fig tree. I guess that has been an objection to some, whether Jesus had the right to kill a tree. hmmmmmm. Then in number four of this study, he says that Jesus did not perceive that the tree only had leaves from afar even though Jesus is a deity and was expecting some fruit. His explanation for Jesus not being “on the ball” was that Jesus was not always in a deity-mode, sometimes Jesus was lazy and did not use his deity-ism. Because there was no fruit under the leaves that he did not see, he cursed the fig tree. By the way, this person is one of many that write and educate the masses justifying these non-events because they are not willing to discern and come to grips with the fact that some of the gospel is not true. They also hate Israel and this writer thinks God is done with Israel and he is so far off the track. They also have been trained since their birth to believe that the bible is INERRANT. Kind of like how they teach that the Pope is infallible. They have been trained not to question scripture, because they have been taught/brainwashed (as most of us have) and are just passing it on. It is deception and because someone tags the name of Jesus Christ to the insanity included in the bible and their own propaganda against Israel they will justify IT any witch way.
So, Jesus Christ used this curse of the fig tree as an object lesson for his disciples.
What in the world did they learn?
They learned that you can remove a mountain with your faith
somehow demonstrated through the cursing of a fig tree.
This is what is called “mocking a mountain out of a MOLE HILL.”
This is UNREASONABLE FAITH!
It is not in the Gospel of John, because it did not happen!
Jesus did not come to curse a fig tree!
Basically, the moral to this ridiculous non-event is to replace the fig tree
with the mustard tree
The deceiver came to curse, to ridicule, and to sow confusion, discord and deception.
IT IS A DUMB STORY!
I believe this dichotomy has to do with Nathanael under the fig tree
and that Jesus called Nathanael “a true Israelite
in whom there is no guile.”
However, Luke’s rendition of Jesus Christ does!
29For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
s30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
31For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
I DON’T KNOW……DO TELL!
Oh yea. Luke knows because he was there when they did it ……INDEED!
THEY PROBABLY ALL WILL JOIN WITH ROME TO FORM A UNIVERSAL RELIGION ….NOT TO OFFEND ANYONE….
AS LONG AS IT IS HEADED BY ROME!
THE MOTHER HEN
WHO WITH HER INFIL–TRAITORS MAKES MEN
Besides isn’t cursing a tree ….a spell? A trick. Cursing is Paul’s business! Paul does so in the books of the bible that promote him. In fact, it is Paul who catches men in their guile by being crafty:
2 Corinthians 12:16
But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.
