“The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.”
How did the disciple Peter respond to that, why did Christ curse the fig tree and what did the fig tree symbolize for the Jews?
Father Markos Mangasaryan provides explanations.
