Text:  Mark 11:12-19


Fruitlessness Judged (11:12-14)

  • Jesus curses the fig tree for not producing any fruit.
  • The barren fig tree is an illustration of Israel, as they did not show any fruits of repentance and faith.



Faithlessness Exposed (11:15-19)

  • Instead of attacking the Romans, Jesus attacks and exposes the faithless worship of the temple (see Isaiah 56:7 and Jeremiah 7:11).
  • The fig tree illustration comes to fruition in Jesus replacing the temple as the One who gives access to God and His kingdom.
