It Was Not The Season For Figs

The key to this passage in Mark lies in the statement from the author, “It was not the season for figs,” signaling to the reader that something is up with the stories that are nestled together within this chapter. If it wasn’t the season for figs why is Jesus cursing the tree? Could it be a picture for his followers? A parable? In this chapter you and I get a glimpse into the hatred Jesus has for dead, unfruitful religion.
