The Fig Tree In The Garden

I want to talk to you today, about the Fig Tree. To do so however,with any kind of integrity, will require that we filter our thinking through the mind of a Hebrew and ask our selves, “When a Hebrew hears stories about Fig Trees, what jumps into their mind? How do they react?

It is also important to recognise that the mention of the Fig Tree in the gospel for today, comes to us by way of a parable. Indeed, to get closer to what is intended in the parable, one should go even further and recognise that within the parable the Fig Tree is framed as a metaphor.
