Parable Of The Fig Tree

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 41

            In this session, Jesus once again reminds us of how much he hates religious hypocrisy. He initiates a call to national repentance, warning Israel in a parable (of a fruitless fig tree) that they will be cut down and out if they don't repent of their refusal to believe the truth. He heals a woman in a synagogue who had been demonically crippled for 18 years and then he gets attacked by the synagogue leader for doing it on the Sabbath. Jesus then reminds them of the parables of the mustard seed and the leaven: two parables that are often misinterpreted in most of our study Bibles.
