Jesus Withers the Fig Tree

No. 25: (Matthew 21: vs.18 – 22); (Mark 11: vs.12 – 14)

Jesus Curses the Fig Tree

18 In the morning, as he was returning to the city, he became hungry.19 And seeing a fig tree by the wayside, he went to it and found nothing on it but only leaves. And he said to it, “May no fruit ever come from you again!” And the fig tree withered at once.

20 When the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, “How did the fig tree wither at once?” 21 And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. 22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, forit was not the season for figs. 14 And he said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard it.
